It's been close; I've seen him sign whole holdall's full of books for one person, but of course there are now more books, so it would still be a record.


That could have been me - he signed 24 books - hardbacks and paperbacks in Bournemouth 8 years ago that I'd lugged right across the town in a large green holdall!

Sadly my shyness got the better of me and I did not make it to the Saturday event. Waste of a tenner buy hey ho that's life, glad I attended the Friday event and I've got some good photos and the video of Robert referring to Cliff Richard rather than Keith Richards. A funny moment

Oh, and also as discussed over the weekend, why shouting at hard drives isn't necessarily a good idea:

What devilry is this? The pictures are in even more glorious detail and technicolour than the weekend itself was. He's a witch! Burn him!

Or something.

Nice pictures anyway. Good to see so many well-documented events.

Ah yes, if anyone's attending the Derby signing please don't be shy and feel free to come and talk to me because I can be quite reserved about starting conversations.

Anyway, here's my real face in all it's horror: (sad thing is, I'm very likely to be wearing exactly the same things, except the arm, on Thursday)

Wow, life is tough for a student, only one bra to get by on & forced to resort to cannibalism for food.

The arm is quite firmly attached to my boy friend who will probably be getting drunk as the last exam finishes a hour before the signing, and he doesn't like books. Normally this would be considered blasphemy, but he's dyslexic and reading on black and white is a chore for him, so he's let off.

I'm going to get my book signed, then go and get drunk. Fun times!
