Borders express

To make a long story short. . .

My husband and I went to Town Center Mall on Saturday.

I looked over and saw Borders express!

"Oh, honey," I said. "Let's go see if they have Christmas Traditions."

Yes! I found it on the shelf with the other Christmas books! There it is, second from the left.

I was so excited to see the book. We just had to take pictures. Needless to say, we got a few looks from a few people. But I didn't care.

These pictures were taken with my husband's cell phone. We met a very nice lady and when she found out what we were doing she offered to get her son's camera and take pictures with it. I'm a little shy, it was her and my husband's idea, but I finally agreed. She went out into the mall and came back with the camera and her husband took the pictures.

We talked for a long time. She said my husband would make a great agent. I don't have their pictures yet, but I gave them my email address and they are going to send them to me. She said she had an idea for a children's book but didn't know if she'd ever try to write it or not.

It was a great! I found my book and met a very nice family all in the same day.

Just received the pictures took by my friends I met in the mall.
Here's one they took of me and my husband.


  1. How exciting to see your name in print! I will have to look for your book next time I'm at Barnes & Noble.
    Have a great day!

  2. I haven't been to that mall in years. But I SO remember spending hours window shopping there.
    I know it must have been exciting finding that book on the shelf. I'll have to see if I can find it on a shelf down here.

  3. WoooooHooooooo! That had to feel spectacular! What a holdiay gift, Miss Janet! Congratulations.

  4. My wife Heidi absolutely loves Borders. She is a big time book reader and she visits the one we have near our home quite often.

  5. How exciting!!! If it was me and my book, I'd have been jumping up and down and would still be jumping up and down!

  6. Wow - every writers dreams to walk into a bookstore and see your book on the shelf. Good for you!

  7. Congratulations. It's wonderful that you not only saw the book with your story but that you also met such a nice family.

  8. Janet, I didn't realize you had a book published. Can you tell me your last name so I can look it up here in the local bookstore?

    Beautiful photos. You have all the right in the world to be proud.
