Okay, I went crazy this week. Totally and utterly insane. Why you ask? Well, it is not because I bought a lot of books – rather, that I bought a bunch of books I already own!
Two words, people: SIGNED COPIES. First off, there was the amazing Kelley Armstrong signing – where I got two more copies (now with lovely dedications) of The Summoning and The Awakening. I also asked her to sign a hardback copy of Frostbitten (but never mind that, as it does not fit with my theme.)
And while I was there, I figured I might as well roll with it. SO – because I had to miss both the Richelle Mead AND Charlaine Harris signings – I got signed copies of their books as well. From Forbidden Planet, I got a second copy of Dead until Dark by Charlaine Harris and Succubus Blues by Richelle Mead. I then popped up the road to Foyles and got the a old-UK-edition signed copy of Vampire Academy by Richelle Mead. So now I have three books signed by Richelle Mead, and have not even met the dear lady! It is actually rather odd.
On the non-signed front, I got two amazing books – one of which resulted in its very own post of OMGSQUEE. The Mystery of Grace by Charles de Lint which I had been wanting for quite a while, and…
Needless to say, I was very excited to get my hands on it almost two weeks early. I stumbled upon it completely by chance at a Waterstone’s (whose identity I shall keep secret in order not to alert them of their mistake) and snatched it off the shelf before someone could pry it from my cold, dead hands. I did have a slight moment of panic as I went up to the till, wondering if some sort of warning alarm would alert them of their error. Needless to say, it did not. And I? Well I am a very, very happy bunny. ♥
Okay, I am done cooing over all my new, shiny, lovely, beauuuuuutiful books.
Or, maybe I’m not. 😉 Happy, HAPPY week!
