I love hearing authors speak and read from their books. Up until now, my favorite reading had been from Koren Zailckas who wrote Smashed. Tonight, I had the unbelievable fortune to hear one of my favorite authors, Sophie Kinsella read from her new book! I adore Becky Bloomwood and feel a kinship with her and with someone who could create such a loveable character. I was not disapointed. Sophie Kinsella was just perfect! She had grace and charm, was witty, had great presence, AND noticed our handmade necklaces!! I thought I had died and gone to heaven.
