I saw an ad for The Pledge in an issue of EW. I found out that Kimberly had done a signing at a Barnes and Noble about a week prior to me finding the ad. I called to see if they had any additional copies.
First the girl said she didn't think so, but she'd look. After finding one, she didn't think she could send it to me. Once a manager told her she could send it to me, she didn't think she could take my credit card number over the phone. What should have been a 5 minute conversation took me about 20 minutes.
However, I was able to get my copy....
While at MGRB waiting for the Marie Lu release party, I stumbled across a signed copy of Gretchen McNeil's Possess. I had already ordered the book, so I decided not to get the autographed copy. Of course, after I read the book, I just had to have the signed copy. So, I ordered it from MG.
Annnnnd, when I was looking at the MG website, I found other signed books that I wanted to buy... I had never even heard of John Grisham doing any sort of signing event so when I saw that they had a signed copy of his new book, I was dying to have it.
When I went to pick up those signed books from MG, I
stupidly walked into the YA section. And of course I found things I wanted to get....
Like a copy of Unearthly by Cynthia Hand. I was planning on just having the copy I already own signed when she toured for Hallowed, but that pretty purple pen just ruined me.
And a copy of Fury by Elizabeth Miles, which is on my to read list.
Just proof that I shouldn't be allowed inside bookstores unsupervised.
