I have not read the book - it just came out yesterday - so I cannot review it or tell you what I think of it. But my daughter and I stood in line 6 hours and 15 minutes to get signed copies of our local author's latest book for my aunt and several friends, so it had better be good! Also, this one was pretty neat because my friend Laura's horse, Pi, made the back cover, behind Nicholas Sparks.
So now you can amaze your friends and acquaintances by telling them you know the name of the horse with Nicholas Sparks on the back cover of The Longest Ride. It's Pi. How do you know that? Because the horse is the friend of a friend of a friend of a friend!
Mr. Sparks was very friendly at the book-signing and thanked us for waiting for so long. I told him that I had gotten one book published and hoped that someday people would support me as enthusiastically as they were supporting him. Perhaps he will come to my booth at the Mumfest in a few weeks and return the favor. He probably won't have to wait in line for six hours!! :-)
