Book-signing Experience

Edith Reynolds and Dan Gaeto's bookstore was as cozy and welcoming as I remembered it. Edith invited me down to sign copies of my "Turn eBay Data Into Dollars" book yesterday (Saturday). She now has a cafe in the bookstore, The John Bale Book Company in Waterbury, Connecticut. Lunch was scrumptious, worth a trip just for the food, never mind the company and great books.

Sandy, a retired schoolteacher, was the first to arrive for the book-signing at 2pm, and we sat down at a small table and chatted about eBay. As others came in, they joined us, and we all sat around talking. It was like an eBay support group, with everyone sharing their experiences and newbies talking about their goals for their businesses.

If you came by the store, many thanks. It was wonderful chatting, and I hope you'll correspond with me via email. (If you weren't able to make it and you haven't seen the book, you can learn more and view the table of contents on the book website.)

Edith has been a wonderful friend over the years. I met her online, she wrote some excellent articles for AuctionBytes, and now Edith is Editor of The Bookologist(which has turned from an email newsletter in to a blog).

I first met Edith and Dan in person at the antiquarian bookfair in Boston a few years back. Yesterday's visit was my third trip down to Connecticut, and I have learned that Edith has a gift for making friends - some very interesting, lovely people!Thanks to Edith for being a wonderful host!

I had read about your book review on one of the other pages and thought how exciting that must be for you. I am glad to read that it went so well. It sounds like you made a lot of new friends and were a big success. It's always nice when we enjoy what we do, isn't it?

I just got through visiting your news room and watching some of the reports. It was very impressive. I will be back to visit again. Thank you.
