Last Saturday, September 10, I attended my first book signing. It was surreal but incredibly exciting, too.
Ayessa and I went to Fully Booked at Global City for Lourd De Veyra’s The Best of This Is A Crazy Planets book signing. That day marked a lot of firsts for me. It was the first time I attended a book signing. It was the first time I saw a published author in real life. It was the first time I went to Global City and was awed by how big Fully Booked is.
5 floors of hundreds of books that made me salivate! I was only there for the book signing but I ended up buying Jonathan Safran Foer’s hardbound copy of his two-books-in-one erm, book. There are so many things I wanted (A Series of Unfortunate Events boxset!) but I had to remind myself that I should save a little for the book fair the following week. Heh.
We arrived at around 3PM. We spent about an hour roaming the place, waiting for the book signing to start. But we couldn’t see anyone fixing anything, no crowd forming anywhere. The girl at the information said it would start at 4PM. Then Ayessa and I went to the 4th floor to look at the Lomo cameras, and that’s when we saw that the book signing already started. Sob sob.
