Okay. Wow. The moment has come—that moment when you open up the nondescript box that comes in the mail and you in peak inside and you see this.
And then you clasped the box to your chest, because you recognize the title and the name on the spine of the book. And you know—you know beyond a 100% that it’s your name and the spine of the book.
After freaking out and opening the box I get to see this.
One of the first Advanced Reader’s Copies of Half-Blood! In actual book format! So as you can imagined, I squee’d a lot. And I hugged it. Petted it, too. I may even take it to Wal-Mart and stick it on a shelf and take a picture of it for the time being.
And on top of this, I will have something neat and cool to show later…. *insert evil laughter.
