For all of you book lovers out there............my first bit of exciting news is that last Friday, I met a famous best-selling author at our local Wegmans store!!  She is a mystery novel writer of over 30 books, and her name is Mary Higgins Clark!!  I have read several of her books in the past and really admired her work!  This latest book of hers, "The Lost Works" made it to the #1 spot on the NY times bestselling list recently!!!  She was very friendly and very classy looking for an elderly lady!!  Her daughter Carol Higgins Clark, another author with a new novel out, was also there for the book signing!  My mom and I went, and we each bought a book and will swap them to read when we are finished!  Ironically, I bought the mother Mary's book and my mom bought the daughter Carol's book!  lol  It was a very cool experience!!!

And........my second thing that I am excited about, is Amazon is getting ready to ship my order for the "Fifty Shades of Grey" trilogy by new British author E. L. James (Erica Leonard) and it's a sizzling HOT one with lots of romance and erotica!!!  She has found fame and fortune and has been interviewed by the Today Show this morning because of her steamy novels!!!!  I can't wait to read all 3 of them.  I will let you girls know how they are!  Have heard by a friend of mine that they are deliciously addictive & hot, hot, hot!!!!!!!  My husband better look out once I get started on them.  hahaha  

~ Danielle    hot flash  I will be feeling this way once I start reading "Fifty Shades of Grey!!!"  lol

Fantastic Suzi!!!  I totally cannot wait to receive the trilogy - all in the same order!!!!  So you may not see me on here too much once I get them for about a week!!  lol  And don't attack the UPS guy now!!  hahaha  I don't have a kindle or nook yet.  And honestly, I like a good old fashioned book to read, so I probably will not be getting one anytime soon!!  If you and my friend Allison loved this book, I am quite sure that I will too!!  So did you jump your hubby's bones after reading it?!?!!  LMAO

It was very exciting!!!  And don't be jealous!!  lol  Just be on the lookout for any future book signings!  This was my very first one, but I will definitely attend another one for an author that I enjoy!!!  Jackie Collins is my absolute fave, and I also love Nora Roberts too!!  So we have that in common.  ;-)  I think that I am going to do a google search for these authors and a few others and see if they have a schedule for future book signings!!

 I found it for my kindle and will be ordering it as soon as I can.. Sounds juicy and interesting. I have been taking time each day to read a book other than a text and looking for good books to read.. Thanks for the heads up!! :)
