OK, I know I said I would post a list of the books I got at RWA.
I can't do it. I'm sorry.
I got 119 books. No joke - 119.
How many of these did I pay for?
Go on, guess.
13. That's right - 13. All the others I picked up as freebies at the Librarian's Day event or at one of the four publisher signings I attended. I got signed books from various Berkley, Avon, Pocket and Ballantine authors. I'm actually glad I left the conference a day early - as four more publishers were hosting signings today. I only drive a Honda Civic for cripes sake - and it ain't even a hatchback.
Many of the titles I got were duplicates I already had at home - but I'm such an indiscriminate book slut that I grabbed any and all freebies I could get my grubby mitts on. Now all I need to do is find time to sort through them all, weed out my TBR (again) and catalog any leftovers for the library's collection.
I know - cry me a river right? I'm certainly not complaining. I loved getting all these books! But now I have to listen to The Boyfriend. I'm already told him many of them "aren't staying" - and whenever he sees me weed out the TBR it makes him happy.
He's so easy to please.
