Through begging, buying, and borrowing along with wonderful publicists, here are my new reads for this week:
This week I read:
I am in the middle of reading:
I really hope I will finish at least, well, all of them this week.
Icing on the cake - I saw (from a distance) Richard Paul Evans at my Costco.
I know. It's kind of like when I got to go backstage for the REO Speedwagon concert and the drummer mussed my hair. And Kevin Cronin put his arm around me for a photo op in his hot leather pants and houndstooth shirt opened to his mid-chest. Kind of like that only without the swearing. Or drinking. Actually, more like the opening act of Colin Ray who blew his pipes on his signature song, If You Get There Before I Do and went straight to his trailer and had a temper tantrum and wouldn't see and greet his show's keyboardist's wife's best friend. He didn't even muss my hair.
Honestly, my brush with famous personalities is something much less than astounding. I should probably mention my REO Speedwagon concert occurred 4 years ago and not in the 1980's when they couldn't fight that feeling any longer.
I did, however, get a ride home from Ron Lafferty's house in his truck by the esteemed would-be cult-leader-turned ritualistic murderer mere weeks before his killing spree. How sad am I that is my claim to fame.
Thanks a lot, Richard Paul Evans.
Have a good one!
