Did you ever hear of John Green? How about The Fault in our Stars?
Endre Barath, Jr., Realtor - Los Angeles Home Sales 310.486.1002 (Berkshire Hathaway HomeServices)

Did you ever hear of John Green? How about the Fault in our Stars?

Well today I was walking around the Los Angeles Festival of Books and I saw an incredibly long line of people who were trying to get in to see this author speak inside one of the largest auditoriums at USC. The crowd mostly consisted of young adult females mixed with older people and young men. So I asked who these people are waiting to see inside.  I was told by one of the young men that it was: John Green. Needless to say he saw the blank stare in my eyes and said he emphasized that John Green is  a really great writer and mentioned a couple of his books: The Fault in our  Stars, Looking for Alaska and I could go on and on. Needless to say I had the same blank stare; the young man smiled and said oh well you might want to check him out.

John Green Author, Endre Barath Los Angeles Realtor

So then I immediately sent an email to Diane, since I did not want to text her, since she is always over her limit of texting. I got an immediate response back: “…well who you think I am trying to hear this morning?” …having had my answer I understood that the book that was on her side of the bed was that “blue covered book “The Fault in Our Stars”… with that information off I went to the “Cooking Stage” but that is food for another Blog Post.  About an hour or so later I get an email from Diane, that she would like me to get to the signing part of the place where I saw this massive line. She is still at the auditorium and wants John Green to sign her book…

As soon as I finished listening to my Chef to be named later, I head over to the Signing Area. So what do I find no exaggeration close to a couple thousand young adults sprinkled with some old adults…. Diane and I connect and from 1:30pm we meandered along the lines to finally around 4:45pm when we finally meet John Green. Truly a gracious author, who decided to stay for all his fans that wanted his book to be signed…,.

John Green, Diane DeJoie, Endre Barath

Needless to say all the fans were thrilled and my curiosity peaked. So here is a book I have never heard of, now I must readJ on a side note most authors are asked to stay at least an hour to sign their books. John Green was a class act, he stayed until every one of his fans was able to meet him and sign the book they had in their hand.

John Green & Diane DeJoie, Endre Barath Los Angeles Realtor


I wish there were more authors like John Green who truly appreciate their fan base and give back.

The Los Angeles Times Festival of Books 2014: at the USC Campus!

The Los Angeles Times Festival of Books 2014: at the USC Campus!

As most of you who read my posts know, that I am an avid reader, a collector of first edition books and I love meeting the authors enjoy some small talk about the books they wrote and get their autographs.  Well the big annual event is here, downtown Los Angeles at the University of Southern California Campus hosts the annual event.

This is the weekend when I do minimal Real Estate activities: no showings in all fairness, I do answer my cell phone, I do respond to my emails via Blackberry and text as needed. The delayed response is all connected to, if I am conversing with an author or listening to an author discussing something about his or her books.

USC, host of the festival of books, Endre Barath LA Realtor

There are clearly a few major interests for me:  the Cookbooks, the Cooking Stage as well as the Mysteries, Historical Fiction and just the experience to hang out with like minded people. People who love reading and or collecting books and we talk and share our experiences about author signings and which books we loved and which ones we did not care for.

The crowd is very mixed, first time readers, seasoned old veteran readers, book sellers, book collectors it is truly an event that is worth going once and if you get hooked you go year after year. Check out our Coffee Mug Collection, we go back to many years of the Festival of Books; the proof is in the Coffee MugsJ!

Do you know who George Tirebiter was, bit of Los Angeles & USC History
Endre Barath, Jr., Realtor - Los Angeles Home Sales 310.486.1002 (Berkshire Hathaway HomeServices)

Do you know who George Tirebiter was? A bit of Los Angeles & USC HistoryJ

 

If you have been to USC‘s Downtown Campus (University of Southern California) the odds are you have seen a Statue of George Tirebiter! George Tirebiter wondered into the USC Downtown Los Angeles Campus around the late 1940’s  and could be see all the way to the early 1950’s and the rest is historyJ well not quite. There were different versions of the history some say that students rescued him off the street. Either way he was a shaggy, dirty, but lovable muttJ.

petfriendly Realtors in Los Angeles, CA, Endre Barath

Ultimately in 1947 he became the Mascot of the school “officially or unofficially” either way he was at every football game, he posed with the Prom Queens among other things.

George Tirebiter has his own websiteJhttp://www.tirebiter.com/ and as you can see he has a statue as well! Sadly tragedy occurred and he was followed by George the Second and ultimately George the Third

 

http://www.usctrojans.com/trads/usc-tire.html   George had a huge following and I was glad to be able to take a picture of this great Mascot of USC!

Endre Barath, Jr., Realtor - Los Angeles Home Sales 310.486.1002 (Berkshire Hathaway HomeServices)

Father’s Day is this Sunday: How about going to Dodger Stadium?

Dodger stadium Friday Night baseball

 

Father’s Day is this Sunday: How about going to Dodger Stadium as a pre-father’s day? Well Diane’s father has not been to a Dodger/Braves game since 1954. In those days they called them The Boston Braves and the Brooklyn DodgersJ

Dodger stadium Friday Night baseball

The two of us went to the Game:  me and Diane’s father. The game was fun and so close that we ended up having extra innings. Since he is a Braves Fan it was extra special. The only bad part for him was that the Dodgers won due to two wild pitches.

Never the less it was all good since they Fireworks right after the game. Well instead of me telling you check out these pictures and you tell me if we did not have a good timeJ
