I just have to say, Brandon Mull is amazing. He's wildly popular (the line snaked clear through the mall - luckily, I was about #150 in line, so I only had to wait for an hour and 45 minutes before my turn to talk to him) and could easily impose all sorts of rules on his signings. He doesn't though. He stays until every single fan has had a chance to talk to him and have their books signed. I took two books down with me (I already have all of his others signed). Barnes & Noble had a rule that only one book per person could be personalized. He'd sign them all, but not personalize them. Well, I saw him personalize a giant stack for the little girl right ahead of me. When I got up there, I still had my teacher name tag on, and we got talking about teaching. I mentioned that I'm also a librarian, and he personalized both of my books as well. He was so complimentary of teachers and librarians and said how much he counts on and appreciates both professions. Then he signed a couple of posters for me - both donated, one to my classroom and one to my library. He's seriously a class act, and I'm so pleased that I've had the chance to talk with him twice now. He'll always be a favorite author.
