Being a proper book geek

Yes, I am going wild, and gallivanting out of my library nest to...a bookshop. More specifically, an event run by the Edinburgh Bookshop on March 3rd, to celebrate the launch of Alexander McCall Smiths' new Number One Ladies Detective Agency book, "The Double Comfort Safari Club". Although I do like his books, this isn't an outing for me: it's actually an important mission on behalf of someone else, who loves his books, but lives on slightly the wrong continent to actually get to meet the author, or have him deface....erm...sign a book for them. So adventuring I shall go...and I have a spare ticket reserved...anyone wanna join me?
