While at Book Passage in Corte Madera in Marin County over the weekend to attend the talk by former Secret Service Agent Clint Hill and journalist Lisa McCubbin, I made a few purchases of books.
I picked up three autographed copies of Hill's and McCubbin's Five Presidents. One for daughter Amber, one for "honorary sister" Diane and one for myself. I pre-ordered a personalized/autographed copy of the book, figuring that I may not have been able to attend or if I did attend, the crowd would be too large to get a signature. It turned out I was right. There was a very long line and I had to make my way back to the Los Banos KOA Kampground, 125 miles away. I bought myself an extra copy.

For Amber, I also got her a copy of Wild by Cheryl Strayed (about her experience in hiking the Pacific Crest Trail).
For myself, I also bought a copy of Five Days In November by Hill and McCubbin. I began reading it two nights ago and now almost finished.
I'll be heading to the Tarzana Post Office to mail Diane her copy of Five Presidents.
