I am a huge fan of Nicholas Sparks! I've read all of his previous books and loved them! So, when his new book, The Lucky One, was released, I checked his book signing dates to see if there were going to be any in my area. Even though there wasn't, I just picked an upcoming signing (in Virginia); called the bookstore (Borders); ordered and paid for the book over the phone; and, requested the book be autographed. Viola!
I was thrilled when the Fed Ex man delivered my autographed copy today!!
