Two more books

had so much of a better time at the book fair this weekend. We were at a better location, met better people, and the weather was perfect. I'd put a photo in this blog, but I am so sleepy that I will have to wait until tomorrow. This is assuming that the photos worked out, because I have some doubts about that.

I still only sold two books, but I decided to chat it up with everyone there. It was great fun meeting new people, and all the people are writers signed up for our Chicago Writers Assn. Funny how if you tell someone you are the author, One lady with a huge pair of glasses claimed she was some kind of coach for podcasting, then said she wanted to buy my book, but didn't have any cash. I told her she could buy it online.

"Oh, no, honey, I want to give the money right to you." Uh-huh. When my shift was over she had never returned. I guess there are plenty of b.s. artists floating around at shows like that. Fortunately, I don't think anyone was going to buy her podcast services.

I'm very tired, but did watch the end of "The Sopranos" and really am not sure what I was seeing. I think it was supposed to evoke some deep down feelings, even though nothing really happened. I'm not sure what was went on and need to think about this for a while. I liked the FBI agent in the end--a funny moment in a pretty brutal drama. If anyone has any theories about what was going on in that ending, I'd love to hear them. No one's predictions were right, including mine, which was we'd see a "Hamlet" ending. (Die, die, they all die.) Unless maybe we did see that? I don't know.
Kinda sad that it's over. I was really used to it and I hate to see it go away. I hardly watch TV at all, so it was a rare treat for me.

I won't be on my blog tour until June 12, but I'll let you know about it tomorrow.
Have a relaxing night.
