TSS: Matthew Norman at One More Page

November 13, 2011 One More Page Books, Thankfully Reading Weekend, The Sunday Salon 5

Last Thursday, Matthew Norman, author of Domestic Violets, paid yet another visit to my local indie bookstore, One More Page Books.  This was Matt’s second visit; he stopped by the store before his book published to speak to a group of local bloggers & book lovers.

My boys joined me for the event, they played quietly in a corner while the event took place. They were so occupied, they tuned out to the events going on in the rest of the store.

This is probably a good thing, as Matthew read from my favorite part of the book, the “bravest” part of the book, the first 30 pages in which the character, Tom Violet, desperately attempts to “prepare” himself for an evening of lovemaking with his wife.

It was a pretty great event, overall!

Yesterday, I announced the third annual Thankfully Reading Weekend!  If you’d rather skip the Black Friday shopping and instead curl up with a book, join us!

Overall, it was a pretty calm week and relaxed week on the blog. Here’s what took place:

Frightful Friday: Monsters in the Movies by John Landis
Off Topic: Kobo, I’m Breaking Up With You
Review: The Iron Knight by Julie Kagawa
Review: The Strangers on Montagu Street by Karen White

Another action-packed week coming up. Jennifer Close, a author of Girls in White Dresses will be at One More Page this week. Really looking forward to that event. Now, if I can only remember who I lent my copy of the book…

    Thank you for reminding me about the Thankfully Reading Weekend. I’d love to host a challenge during the weekend. Something light. I have lots and lots of great books I could give away….

      He did! Although, he and his wife just had a baby a little over a month ago. His writing time is severely limited!
