Hi Dan

If the staff at Turn the Page seems a little distracted and maybe a little on the hungry side, it’s because we’re all participating in the Make It Happen Staff Fit Challenge for the next six weeks. This means lots of water drinking, eating
Halloweenvegetables and working out—and that’s just the beginning. If you read Nora’s blog, you know she doesn’t need encouragement to exercise, so she just follows along at home via our Facebook Challenge Group and then presents prizes to the winners when we’re all finished.

Since that’s apparently not enough in the shenanigans department, we’re also plotting our costumes for our Halloween Signing on October 27 (see photo from our last Halloween Signing at right). If you’re coming to the event, be prepared to be entertained; better yet, join in the fun and wear your own costume. You know Nora will!

When we’re not reading or getting sidetracked, we’re on the phone taking pre-orders for our upcoming signing events, especially the one with Karen Marie Moning. There’s time to do your book shopping once you get your ticket to the signing, but rather than risk disappointment, many readers call ahead to have books waiting for them to purchase (more detail below and on the Facebook event page).

Whether you have a trip to Boonsboro planned for this fall or not, remember that autographed books and books in general make wonderful holiday gifts. Want some help with your shopping? Just give us a call. We have lots of experience connecting fans with the perfect gift or selection of gifts, and we ship worldwide six days a week.

Please read on for more about upcoming and available books.
