David Nicholls  
I went to the David Nicholls book signing today ! I had never been to a book signing before so this was really special to me. There's something strange about meeting someone you've read and truly enjoyed a book by. I don't know if that makes any sense ! But he was really kind and friendly. He seems to me as a very humble person. He read from the book (skipped some sentences here and there because he can't bear reading them anymore !) and then we got to ask some questions. And I got my book signed ! 
I chatted with a couple of people who were so friendly. It was such an exciting thing to do for me. I'm looking forward to do this again !

Thank you Dear ! You know, you are absolutely right : it's so rare to be in a place where everyone smile at you and make nice comments, etc. That's one of the main reasons why I had such a great time ! I don't know if it has anything to do with it but everyone was pretty much British there ! ;)

Hey, he spelled your name correctly! Glad you had fun :o)

To be fair to Marcus, I was the one to blame ! I learnt how to spell my name correctly ! J is pronounced G in French and vice and versa.
Thanks, I had a great time :) I think you've already been to book signings (Jhumpa Lahiri if I'm correct ?) ? It's really fun !

I thought of you that night because you are one of the main reasons why I read the book ! I'm sure you would have loved him. It was impossible not to. He's so sweet and shy. :)
Thanks :)

This sounds so great Morgane! We very rarely have book signings by anyone interesting in Ireland! Though I think Stephenie Meyer may have come to Dublin for 'Breaking Dawn'. The only famous writers I've met are poets, Seamus Heaney and Paul Muldoon - so I would love to meet a novellist!

I'm just about to go swimming but have so many things to write to you about. I finished 'Special Topics in Calamity Physics'!! And of course, TVD analysis too;)

This was really brilliant ! It'll remain a great memory. We don't have a lot of famous authors around here either so I couldn't believe my eyes when I saw his name on the website !
Seamus Heaney ! It's huge, Maeve ! :) (I'm sure the S. Meyer event was really crowded ! so you probably didn't miss a lot)

Oh yay ! I really hope you liked it!! Especially the last chapters. I thought they were really good.
TVD! I almost forgot we were Thursday already !
I hope you had a good, relaxing swim !
