J loves author Rick Riordan's Percy Jackson series of books. He has read all of the books, seen the movie twice, and looked up many of the Greek Mythology tales retold in these stories. When he heard that Rick Riordan was coming to a nearby city for an author signing, he really wanted to attend.
The bookstore it was held at had given out all 1,400 tickets in less than an hour, which meant that J would have to stand in line for several hours to get a chance at a signature. He wanted to go anyway, so he and Daddy packed their sack dinner and went off to the bookstore Thursday evening. J waited patiently in line for over three hours to get to meet his favorite author and get his book signed, but he said it was worth it, and he couldn't be happier!
