Honest Opinions, Please.

April 20th, 2018 at 07:06 am

Is it okay to attend a Meet & Greet without purchasing the guest's book to be personalized?

I am attending a university-sponsored event tomorrow at no cost because I am a current student. I have paid to join the professional organization (student rate). My goal is to not only learn the topic, but to network.

I will add that we just made some necessary upgrades to the rental property (new front/back/garage doors purchased from Menards and installed and bath tub paint, etc) to the tune of $1,100.00 (Paid cash)

DH's last month of work is May. We will have three final paychecks; he is currently working with a recruiter and I am finishing up a graduate certificate in Organizational Development. Our only extraneous spending has been a $100 suit for him from Kohls on sale and $80 textbook for me.

I don't know the etiquette of attending Meet and Greets and don't particularly want to purchase this book. Is it OK if I go and don't spend the $40.

I really haven't a clue; thus the question. Thanks for the advice. In the event that it is tacky to go and not buy the book, I will buy the book and attend.

I have no point of reference for this. Thanks!

    Is it a book signing event at a book store? If so, they probably won’t let you get in line without a copy of the book.

  2. Laura Says:

    No, not at a book store/book signing.

    Sponsored by the college, author is speaking tomorrow on an OD topic.

  3. CB in the City Says:

    No, you absolutely do not have to buy the book. It is hoped for, but not expected.

  4. Rachael777 Says:

    If it is not a book signing.. I agree with CB .. no need to buy the book. Good luck!!

  5. Carol Says:

    I third CB.

    Especially since it is at the college / a college event: everyone expects college students to be poor and broke (no matter the age), so I'm with everyone else that it's a hard no, it's not required. Like Butterscotch said, if it were a book signing at a bookstore that would be a different story.

  7. PatientSaver Says:

    No, not at all. You don't have to buy the book.
