The Breathless Tour

So as I promised, I said I'd talk a bit about The Breathless Reads Tour in New York.  Let me just begin by saying that it was such a lovely experience and an honor.  I have never been able to go to a book signing, but finally, fate shined down on me and told me "Hell yeah!  You're going to this event rain OR shine!"  Well, that's how I imagined how fate would talk to me...Well, anyway, back to the point of this post.I might as well begin with how accomidating and prepared Books of Wonder was to behold such an event.(Later on I figured out that they do stuff like this all the time.)  But seriously, as soon as I walked through the door, I was greeted by a bright and cheery worker and asked if my friend and I were here for the event.  We said we were and we were showered with passes and posters and a few extra books to bring home with us and treasure for the rest of our lives.
We also happened to be, like, the first people there.  They didn't even have the chairs and tables ready for the event.  And as of then, I believe the only author I spotted in the store was Beth Revis.  My fangirliness is kind of pathetic when I look at the big picture...
Then came the time when both the chairs and authors had arrived.  Since we were early to arrive, we had the ability to choose any seat we wanted.  We thought, "Hey, how about front and center?"  Then we thought, "No.  No, we're not going to do that; it's took fangirly and we'd look like complete dorks."  We chose to do the latter, and chose seats second row from the front on the left.  Not much of a differnce, I know.  We thought we were playing it cool at the time.
We sat through all of what the authors had to say about their stories, and I even asked a question!  For the entire event, I was in a complete state of bliss.  It was lovely.
And now for some pictures:
 I originally went to go meet Andrea Cremer becasue she was the only author whose books I've read.
 But then I remembered discovering Jessica Spotswood's book on Amazon and I had put it on my wishlist.  So I impulsively bought her book and had her sign it.
I also bough Marie Lu's book and got her to sign it, but I didn't get the opportunity to take a picture, but I really wish I had.
Anyhow, that was The Breathless Reads Tour for me!  It was amazing and a dream come true!  Oh, and I plan to go to more of these in the near future.  Did anybody else go to one of these Breathless events?  If you did, tell me how it went!
