This has been a great weekend for me. Starting with the BEA Twitter Party that The Book Lady’s Blog hosted for those of use who couldn’t attend the BEA in New York. This was my first twitter party, and really the first time I really used my twitter account. I updated but always forgot to update or check others updates, now I’m addicted! I have so many new people on there to follow, who are fellow book geeks, nerds, avid readers and bloggers, I can’t help it. Like others at the BEA Twitter Party I had a hard time following what was happening. But did catch snippets of things, and now have some great blogs to check out. I’ll try my best to stop by soon. But a big shout out and “Hello” to all of you In case I can’t stop by personally. See who need to go to NY to meet new people, and chat about our love for books…… Yeah I know… ME! Lol. If I could have had both, I so would!
Also to all of those who won something either at the Twitter Party or at BEA, congratulations!
As for not being able to attend and nab my self some books and free books, I found my way into a bookstore and two books just “followed” me home. I don’t know how it happened, they jumped off the shelves into my hands, and then they came home. (I also don’t know how I accidentally paid for them either) The two books I bought were:
The Zombie Survival Guide: Complete Protection From the Living Dead - Max Brooks
Crime and Punishment - Fyodor Dostoyevesky
I’ve already finished the Zombie Survival Guide. Now I must get my self prepaired. They’re coming. Also, if you can guess what letter for the Title portion of the A - Z Challenge I’m using this book for I will eat a bowl of ice cream in your honour!
I also stopped by the library to pick up a hold and another book followed me home from there too. Does anyone else have this problem? Books just following them home from book stores and libraries? Sadly the library books must be returned. Or else the library police come after you.
These books are:
Nineteen Minutes - Jodi Picoult
All Our Worldly Good - Irene Nemirovksy (which I almost bought at the bookstore)
So some good book finds this weekend. That’s it for now, Sunday is coming to an end, so is May. I’ll have the Zombie Survival Guide review up shortly, and my May Wrap up sometime tomorrow.
