April Book Photo Challenge
Day 18: Fangirling

Meeting J.K. Rowling. Hands down.

It was on the release day of ‘The Casual Vacancy’ and after the talk/reading there was such a huge queue for the signing we only had a couple of seconds each in front of her as she signed our books.

Of course, all that I managed to say was, ‘Thank you so much.’ Something she’s heard hundreds of thousands of times. But she still took the time to look up into my eyes, smile, and say, “You’re welcome.” As if she understood exactly what my thank you meant. That I was saying thank you for creating this amazing world, for shaping my entire childhood, for being the reason I met my best friend seven years ago. That I meant thank you for making me the person I am today.

I have so much respect for that woman.
