So as everyone knows today is the first day Chris Colfer’s book is out. My sister who lives in New Jersey was gonna go to the Ridgewood signing if she didn’t had to work and didn’t have to wait so long.

Keep in mind that it’s only 9 am and Chris Colfer begins signing at 7 pm!
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.
