A place to think, reflect, and talk (mostly to myself) about books I love…and a few that I don't.

What happens when favorite books clash July 12, 2011

Just realized that I am going to miss George R. R. Martin’s appearance at the Union Square Barnes and Noble on Thursday @7pm because I will be attending a twofer viewing of Harry Potter and the Deathly Hallows (parts 1 & 2, back-to-back)…!!

On the one hand I am cruelly disappointed: authors don’t often visit the same place more than once in a tour, which means I’ll have to wait until the next book comes out to meet Martin.

On the other, I’m ridiculously excited: I mean, c’mon, it’s Harry. I was inspired to spend a year researching and writing an academic paper (bleechhh!) by the boy (or…at least his effect on our culture…ok, so I am a nerd…). My point is, he’s got prior claim.

Still, though the choice is clear, I feel somewhat conflicted. An odd string of thoughts for a Tuesday morning…

    If it makes you feel better, they are opening the GRRM event at 12pm for people to be seated. 12pm! And to get priority seating you have to buy the book at B&N

    • Well, that does ease it a bit! That’s 7hrs!! I’d have to take the day off. Buying the book I wouldn’t so much mind…but perhaps I should reserve that statement for after I’ve made it to bk4! LoL you never know!

  2. btw, just me or do martin and HP look something similar up there????
