Book Events Attended
I have been to some brilliant events this month.

Firstly at the start of the month I got to go to the Launch party for Cruel Summer by James Dawson. It was a fabulous evening for a brilliant book packed with bloggers, authors and bookish folk. I enjoyed it immensely.

Secondly I got to see Neil Gaiman at Ely Cathedral. We made a bit of a night of it as we had heard how busy the signing would be and stayed over in Ely. That meant before the event we got to go to Toppings and raid their signed books and buy a huge stack of them.

The event was huge. We arrived over an hour and half early and joined an already sizeable queue. Once we finally got in we secured good seats and waited for Neil to come on stage. His talk and reading was interesting and funny. I particularly enjoyed him answering a whole host of random questions the audience had asked. After the signing we got back into another huge queue (luckly within the first 200 people) and after a hour and a half we got to meet the man himself and get books signed. A fabulous evening in a brilliant venue. Looking forward to reading The Ocean at the end of the Lane now.
