Day 2 of the "Good Tidings and Great Joy" book tour was filled with two book signings (Columbus, Ohio and Grand Rapids, Michigan), multiple Facebook posts from Gov. Palin as well as countless media reports on both her interviews and the book signing events themselves. Here's a few highlights.
First stop of the day was Barnes and Noble in Columbus. Gov. Palin shared the following picture and message:
Thank you to the beautiful people of Columbus, Ohio! It was wonderful and inspiring getting to meet all of you today. And thank you to the great staff at Barnes & Noble.
Twelve additional photos from the Columbus signing here.
Later in the day it was on to Grand Rapids where Gov. Palin was honored by a WWII vet. Keep reading to learn more. From Palin's Facebook page:
What an honor! This photo from the Grand Rapids book signing is of a wonderful 95-year-old World War II vet who gave me a signed copy of HIS own book!
Thank you to all the great folks in Grand Rapids who came out tonight for the book signing. It's always great to connect with Michiganders! And thank you to the great staff at Barnes & Noble.

WZZM published the following on Palin's Woodland Mall stop:
GRAND RAPIDS (WZZM) -- Even if she is out of politics, Sarah Palin still commands an audience wherever she goes.
The 2008 republican vice presidential candidate was in West Michigan Wednesday evening to promote her hew book, 'Good Tidings and Great Joy: Protecting the Heart of Christmas.'
A large crowd formed at Woodland Mall for a chance to meet the former Alaska governor. The book signing event began at 6 p.m. at Barnes and Noble.
"We heard that she was coming and it was the perfect opportunity to meet her finally and see her," said fan K.C. Borman.
The line to meet Palin was long, fostering a sense of togetherness for republicans, some of whom feel their party is fractured. "You don't have a whole lot of that one-team kind of thing. There are different perspectives and this does give us the feeling of teaming," said Don Piskulovich. More
And at the end of the day, something to bring a smile to your face.

Captured "Glam Palinesque" dinner on the road. Our book tour includes as many quick stops as possible. Here we follow our daughter Willow's lead in ordering dinner in a fine east coast gas station -- love it! Love the friendly folks who work there!
Next stop, Wausau, WI!
