I Can't Believe My Luck!

I know that I'm a major book geek, but something really exciting happened to me this week. I was surfing around on various book blogs, and I saw that there was a contest on Joshua Henkin's website to win a free copy of his latest book MATRIMONY. I had seen this book featured on various websites (it was also selected as one of the top 100 books by the New York Times), and I knew it was a book that I would enjoy. I entered the contest and found out the next morning from Mr. Henkin that the contest had ended (he said that he needed to update his website); BUT.....he said that he had something else to offer -- he would come to my book club to discuss MATRIMONY!!!! I can not begin to tell you how excited I am. I absolutely love author chats and what could be better than an author chat in person? It's not going to take place until the middle of May, but I'll be sure to let everyone know how it goes.
