Never Leave The Ball Early: Or My Profile on The Olive Reader

Sorry Charlie.  No profile for you!

Sorry Charlie. No profile for you!

Last week I debated leaving my apartment in the most horrendous weather NYC has seen in quite a few months to go to Harper Perennial‘s Fall Ball.  It is hard to go out in cold pouring rain when you are already warm and snuggly inside.  I thought about bailing, but then I thought books in bars, authors in bars and a nice glass of red and hauled my patoot down to The Slipper Room (which let me tell you, the West/East commute to Lower East Side  is not for the faint of heart or one to be taken lightly, it requires love of whoever or whatever you are going to see/do) for . I’m glad I did.  I met a few authors, picked up some great books and won a fabulous door prize.  I got to choose between burlesque lessons (seriously?) or a profile on Harper Perennial’s Blog The Olive Reader for me or my pet. Though it was a tough micro-second decision I went with the profile on Olive Reader.  For me, of course.  Go pet it!

I am so glad that I stick around to watch them announce raffle winners!

  2. I read your profile and left you a little comment of blogger love. :)

    Though I would love burlesque lessons, I think I’d probably make the same choice you did. :)

    Aw, come on, burleque lessons would certainly be a bloggable event!. There could be pictures even!

    (And to be honest? I think I’d have chosen the lessons, just for the fun of it! ~LOL~)

    Loved your profile, Nicole! The Sun Also Rises was one of those had-to-read-for-school books for me, so of course I don’t remember it at all! Is Charlie mad that you didn’t let him be interviewed for the profile?
