Jasper Fforde's new novel

Postby steeljam » Wed Dec 30, 2009 4:20 pm

Jasper Fforde's new book is shown as being published on 14th January but Waterstones are selling the book now.
Picked up a copy today with £3 off.
Love the Paint by Numbers cover.
Check out the Shades of Grey website. Lots of fun.

So glad I was able to go! :D He gave a great talk and reading, took questions, was very funny and I got a button. Even though he'd already signed several books before I got up there he still took the time to chat with me. Mentioned the twinning of Swindon and Walt Disney World then, because I was too shy to raise my hand during Q&A. I think he's pretty amused by that. He's working on the next Next book, and I'm wondering if he'll work that in. :lol:

I loved the bit in the last Thursday Next book where they went to Wales to do some cheese smuggling. :lol:

Me too! :lol: I think I'll have to re-read that series soon. Although after hearing him talk about this book and read from it, I'm very excited to start it. I've just got to get through some library books first, before I have to return them.
