So, there I was, minding my own business, when this guy shows up:
Thanks for signing SON OF NEPTUNE stock, Rick Riordan! My niece is going to absolutely pee herself when she sees what I got her for Christmas. Plus, after seeing the level of fangirling that occurred when fellow booksellers realized who this was was simply astonishing. Not quite up to my Jim Butcher levels of squee, but I feel at least partially vindicated…
Nerd celebrity =/= “real” celebrity.
Have I mentioned recently that I love my job?
