I went to Barnes and Noble about 12:30 P.M. today to get a ticket for Sarah’s place in line to meet Stephenie Meyer and get her copy of Eclipse signed.
According to Ms. Meyer’s website, the bookstore would begin issuing color-coded tickets at 11:00 A.M. I figured I would be one of the early birds, coming a scant hour and a half after the store began issuing tickets. Not so. Sarah will not be dead last in line, but she will be squarely in the middle with her red ticket.
I guess I’m clueless, but I didn’t realize she was quite that popular! Steve did a quick Amazon search and let me know that her current release, Eclipse, has a sales rank of #13 in books, while New Moon is ranked #26. Twilight is still a respectable #58, despite the fact that it was released in hardcover two years ago.
I’m glad I had the day off for Rosh Hashanah, or who knows what color ticket Sarah would have!
