This is the first installment of my new feature, Literary Locale. Basically I want to tell you all about where I'm reading and if you're so inclined, feel free to grab the graphic and tell me about where you're reading either here in a comment or on your own blog.
So if you remember, a couple weeks ago, I reviewed Chocolate Chocolate by Frances Park and Ginger Park. I pretty much gushed over the book and went a little fan girl (confession: when I was at the library this weekend, I saw the book on the new book shelf and decided to turn it with the cover facing out to the world so someone might take more notice of it. Seriously, read this book!).
Anyhow, when I realized that the chocolate shop that the book was based on is right here in Washington, DC, I knew I had to go take a visit so just a bit ago, I did just that! I was lucky enough to be in the store while Frances was there so I got to meet her!
I had a really nice visit with her. Frances is just as sweet as her and her sister's book. We talked all about the book and she told me more about some of the characters in the book. It was so cool to be able to talk about the book with the author. This is really the first author that I've gotten to meet in person, definitely since beginning book blogging!!! So cool!
|Of course there are copies of the books in the store. I bought my own and got Frances to sign the book.|
|You can see that they were just starting to get ready for Valentine's (my valentine and I had an early Valentine's day celebration and yes, I did get a little something from Chocolate Chocolate. Happy day!!!)|
|Miles and miles of treats. Exactly how I like it.|
|Here's a picture of Frances and I.|
