If ever I needed more proof of the fact I should not be let loose around books on my own… my recent trip to Oregon has provided it.
Buying the books didn’t really faze me (half of them were given to me)… it was putting all 13 of those beauties in my carryon duffel and lugging it around an airport.
Two copies of Prudence (book the first: Custard Protocol series) purchased at Powells during Gail Carriger’s book signing.
While at Powells, I also picked up copies of God’s War and Infadel by Kameron Hurley, as well as the White Guard by Mikhail Bulgakov.
The friend I stayed with on Wednesday and Thursday nights of the trip had been collecting some inexpensive, used romances for me for a time and so I snagged those from her while I was there.
And then I met up with Author Tiffany Reisz for coffee and talking on Friday where she was gracious enough to give me two copies of The Virgin (one of which could be yours – check back on Tuesday!)
And that is how I wound up with a very heavy bag on my return trip!
