Home after cheerleading for my favorite author, Susan Mallery, & I wanted to share with all of you about our day!! I took my 3 year old, Ethan, with me since my husband, Shawn, took our other son, Noah, to his MRI & to his ortho appointment (both went well).   We went to 5 different locations! 3 out of 6 had Summer Days!  Ethan was a great helper!  He was helping put bookmarkers into the books!!

Before we left, we had to get the Great looking Fool's Gold Magnet onto my van!!  =)  I love the saying "Read. Laugh. Love."  It is almost like my other favorite saying Live Laugh Love.  I believe in both of these sayings!! 


Close up of the magnet!  Isn't it cute?  I love the book covers for each of the new books coming out by Susan Mallery.  We have Summer Days that came out today!!  Summer Nights that is coming out on June 26th & All Summer Long that is coming out on July 31st.  I can not wait to read the last 2.  My review of Summer Days should be up within a week.  

My first stop today was Books A Million.  The sales clerk there was very nice.  We chatted about why I was there.  I explained I was a 2012 Fool's Gold Cheerleader, that Susan started this a few years ago (I think 2) to advertise her books.  I told him that this was the first year that our area is being chosen for this opportunity.  I asked if they are expecting anymore of Summer Days in stock & he said he is not sure.  I will be checking back with him to see.  The sales clerk still had to put Summer Days out onto the shelf to sale.  

Ethan & I went to Target.  The sales clerk here was great!!  I can not remember what Target calls their sales person on the floor!  I used to work for them a long time ago when I was in college.  He showed me where Summer Days is located & said that he does not think they are anywhere else (he was right).  Ethan helped me again getting everything we needed to put into the books!  Best stock so far!

Ethan & I went to Walmart next, but I could not find Summer Days on the shelf.  I spoke with the book rep at Walmart about Summer Days being in stock.  She feels that it was due to the holiday.  Another store in my area also did not receive Summer Days.  We also spoken about Summer Days, & the other Fool's Gold books & she is going to read FG!! =) I told her all about the series & Summer Days. I have had other book conversations with this lady before, but first time about FG! I have to go back Thursday to put the bookmark in since they did not get their shipment.  On Thursday, I will talk some more to this lady.  I may even write down this blog address for her so she can get some information about the series!  

Sam's Club did not have Summer Days, which really surprises me.  They normally have all the new releases.  I spoke with someone about getting it in.  I will be checking back in with them later in the week.  I also went into a grocery store to see if they have Summer Days & they did not.  I waited in line to talk with someone, but the lady at customer service was too busy filling up the cigarettes & Ethan was starting to act up so we left.

Ethan & I took a little detour in our cheering!  We went to the grocery store to get a few items.  It was close to where we were.  Ethan was getting tired & whiney!  

Our last stop for the day was Walgreens!  They were great there!  Books are right up front.  I never known that.  I do not go into Walgreens that much.  


I still have Barnes & Noble, which is about 30 minutes from me.  I can not wait to go there.  It is my favorite book store!  I also have this small book store in our downtown area, which I have never been in.  I think I have not been in it.  Plus go back to Walmart.  

Ethan & I had a lot of fun cheering!!
Keep on Reading Fool's Gold Series by Susan Mallery!!
