    What an absolutely amazing week and I’m drooling at the thought of both Melissa Marr’s manga and the visit by Farrin Jacobs! What a dream job IMO 🙂

    omfg! I’m not alone with my obssession for books. I’ve got my fingers crossed on getting into a publishing place after high school. Ek! One day you could be reading my work, which would be awesome. I actually just finished writing a book. It’s in the editing process at the moment.
