Apparently, in my excitement, I overlooked something. You see, Brandon Sanderson (as well as Harriet McDougal, Kate Reading, and Michael Kramer) are not coming to Books-A-Million in Baltimore until February 18, not January 18.
So I finished A MEMORY OF LIGHT (review coming soon) and drove to Baltimore only to see no line, no chairs, and no crowds. I wondered what the heck was going on. Then I checked the calendar. Womp womp. Oh well, at least I got to have dinner with some members of my family before driving back to DC.
It was a good dry run. I’ll be sure to post some photos and details in a month. Until then, look for my review and my Fantasy-Faction articles this week. But today, enjoy your holiday if your employer gives you MLK Day off, and enjoy the inauguration. I’ll be watching it from the best seat in the house–my living room sofa. Where the view is unobstructed, where it’s warm, and where I have access to private bathrooms.
