Autograph from founder of Lonely Planet

Do you know who are Tony and Maureen Wheeler? Most of you have probably read the book published by his company. They are the founders of Lonely Planet.

Here's a picture of Tony. This afternoon he was having an autograph session.



I bought the book and had it Tony autograph it. It is someone's birthday gift actually. Hope that person will like it.

Such a coincidence. I had a "Best of Sydney" lonely planet book and brought it to work today for a colleague who is going for a conference in Sydney in a few days time.

You can visit Tony's blog at: www.lonelyplanet.com/tonywheeler or if you want head down to Borders or Kinokuniya and buy or browse the book. Speaking of that, so many people just browse or even read the whole book at Borders or Kinokuniya right? Are you one of them? haha...

Oops, used to be, when I was in college. Computer books are quite expensive and our school's library have limited books, so whenever I got a chance, I will go to a bookstore and read it there. :)

Hi all, I think most of us are the same. We read books at the bookstore, nowadays while waiting for the ladies to shop around, guys do wait at a bookshop, and read half a book or so right? haha....
