Tonight's booksigning at Borders in Fairfax, Virginia included some people from the early days of Thirteen Reasons Why. Only one month after its release, Kurtis Goad gave my book a great review on Boys Blogging Books. In the photo below, I'm joined by Kurtis and Sherri Goad (who did a great job reading as Hannah tonight).
Linda Acorn won a contest on my old blog and came to tonight's event with her winnings. I signed her very rare Thirteen Reasons Why t-shirt and an Advance Reading Copy.
Some of you may know that I'm "kind of" into politics. So when the driver took me to my hotel, I had a serious case of What would be the right thing to do? It was late. I had to get up early for my next flight. But Washington D.C. was just across the river!!!
So I hopped in a cab and decided to sleep on the plane.
Monuments have never impressed me much. Many of them are simply bland or overly symbolic for my taste. Looking at photos of the Washington Monument always left me scratching my head. But to see it in person? It's so...well...monumental! (Unfortunately, no matter how hard I try, there's no way to express how impressed I was without my description sounding full of innuendo.)
And the Lincoln Memorial is absolutely inspiring and beautiful.
Even at 11pm, there was an excited crowd gathered in front of the White House.
