Usually for WednesdayBookClub, I would post a picture of a fancy library or book store but today is a special picture.

Last night, I went to a book signing for John Scalzi, writer of Fuzzy Nation, Redshirts and Old Man's War and it was awesome!! He showed up early so he just sat down at the table with his laptop and checked his email and goofed off with us. We started talking about our preferred apocalypse (some people said they wanted Godzilla, I said Skynet because we've already missed like four Judgement Days and we might be able to distract it with cat picture our something). We all took a vote and Skynet won!! Hence, the signature. He also said that he wrote Redshirts in about 5 weeks, to which I was completely dumbstruck. Is that possible?

Now that I have gotten that but of fangirling out of the way, let's talk about books!!

This week, I finished the Percy Jackson and The Olympians books and sat there, staring off into space, trying to figure out what to do next. I'm really going to miss this series and will be trying to get everyone to read it.

I also got Old Man's War, which I have yet to read and the latest book in the Sammy Keyes series. I'm leaving town Friday so I'll be bringing those and a few other books with me.
