Chris Colfer makes me feel like such an underachiever. He’s written and starred in a movie, written a best-selling book, been one of Time Magazine’s 100 Most Influential People, and he’s won a Golden Globe for Glee. All by age 22.
Meanwhile, I’m just proud of myself if I manage to wake up before noon each day.
RIDGEWOOD, NJ - JULY 17: Chris Colfer visits at Bookends Bookstore on July 17, 2012 in Ridgewood, New Jersey
Has anyone heard anything more from Bookends about the signed copy of The Land of Stories they ordered? I don’t think I missed anything, but I placed my order through them the day the signing locations were announced and I’ve got an email confirmation and it looks like they charged my account that same day.
But that was a month and a half ago and I’m always paranoid, so with the book coming out tomorrow, I thought I’d ask. So, as far as anyone’s heard, are they still fulfilling all of those phone/email orders they took?
Thanks so much for your order. We will ship once signed by Chris on July 17th. We appreciate your business.
For anyone who didn’t already know, you can contact Bookends about having them get Chris to sign a copy of The Land of Stories for you. It’s $17.99 for the book and $8.95 for shipping within the US (I’ve heard it’s something closer to $30 for shipping internationally).
I would recommend contacting them as soon as you can since I don’t know if they have a cutoff number for how many orders they’ll take. The store absolutely wants you to call them, but if that isn’t at all an option (international calling or whatever) you can email them explaining why you can’t call and they’ll help you place an order that way (they just don’t prefer it — plus, it’s sending all of your credit card information over an email if that’s how you contact them, so, you know, security).
