Today was a quiet day, even though we were out and about quite a bit.

Because the gathering with [livejournal.com profile] esrblog's family got a late start, we were able to stop in at Terry Pratchett's signing after all. He looked tired, and a bit frail, and had clearly lost some weight since we last saw him. We shook his hand right before he gave his talk, and he said he was "bushed." Since he had a speech to give and we had a gathering to go to (and there were no seats left for his talk anyway), we left.

We came back to Chester County Book & Music Company about two hours later for food (since my meat-eating husband didn't get quite enough food at the family gathering), and Terry was still signing books. We hung out with friends until 4:45 p.m., and Terry was just finishing up the signing. Out of sympathy for his exhaustion, we didn't attempt to talk with him again. [livejournal.com profile] esrblog did introduce himself to Terry's publicist, and in doing so learned that about 250 books were signed at today's event. Apparently that pales in comparison to Terry's signing of yesterday, where he signed about 700 books. He is heading to New York City for a big signing tomorrow.

Poor Terry. On the other hand, I'm pleased that his books are selling so well.
