I Won
Darkness Becomes Her by Kelly Keaton: Signed book, signed bookmark and signed post-it notes
I got this book from Steph over at Paper Cut Reviews, thanks Steph. When I got this I was really suprised, I guess I missed the memo saying this was coming from the author and that is would be signed. When Steph notified me that I had won a copy of the book I was really excited and than when it came from the author and it was signed with some swag included I was super excited for it. Thanks to Kelly

I Bought at Third Place Books 
an awesome new and used bookstore
I decided to get both of Holly Black's the Curse Worker books when I was at the signing event of Cassandra Clare and Holly Black, I have been hearing a lot of good this about them and I want to try them.
Not sure when I will get around to reading them, but I will eventually. Both are signed

I did pretty good this week. I'm trying to not buy too many books, I have so many books that need to be read. So I'm only getting books that are a need to have for signing or currently coming out that I just have to have, or if they are a really good deal. We will see how this goes. I'm going down to Portland tomorrow for another book signing at Powell's and oh man I'm in trouble!!!

This Weeks Outlook
Tuesday I'm going to Portland with my cousin to Jean M. Auel's book signing
I have to finish a scrapbook for my Mom so I won't be able to read as much :( sad

Oh, how awesome that you won a signed copy of Darkness becomes her, personally sent from the author! That's really cool.

I just finished reading White Cat, and I thought it was awesome! I am really excited for Red Glove.

Iron Witch looks so good! I am interested in hearing what you think about it.

Have fun tomorrow! It's at Powells (downtown), right? How exciting!

I know what you mean about not buying so many books. I've just bought s many lately that I don't really NEED to buy more. I can't help that Powells has such great prices! LOL. I am going to not really buy any this week. We'll see how that goes...

Have a fun and safe trip!
