Booksie's Shelves, October 20, 2017

Almost the end of October already!  I love the fall and all it brings.  Tomorrow I'm going to a make your own glass pumpkin workshop and very excited about that.  The days are turning colder and the leaves are starting to turn.  I've been to two book club meetings this week, one for mystery books and one for fantasy/sci fi.  I also had a wonderful outing on Monday.  I went to the Women's National Book Association Charlotte Chapter's Bibliofeast where you got to meet eight different authors.  All were interesting but the best for me was meeting an online friend who is now an author, Caitlin Hamilton Summie.  It is fascinating to hear about all the research that goes into a book and how much work with many rewrites and edits.  If you ever think people just dash a book off, think again!
