One thing on my bucket list has always been to go to an author reading/book signing. I have seen many events that I have wanted to go to over the years, but when you are working or strapped with kids it is hard to do. But I am lucky and my dad is staying with me right now and I am going to see Tim O’Brien at the Jacksonville Public Library (main library) this Thursday! I was at the book store with friends last night (yes, we are lame, we have a girls night and end up at the bookstore) and I saw O’Brien’s book on the shelf and that made me remember that he was coming to the library. So I mentioned it to my friend Sarah and she said that he was a great writer, so I purchased his book and I plan on reading it today so I am ready for Thursday! One of my tenth grade students has been reading it for awhile now so I plan on mentioning it to him on Monday! I am so excited!
