The time Mysterious Galaxy had a sale

The time Mysterious Galaxy had a sale

At some point in the last couple of weeks, I went into Mysterious Galaxy and got an invitation to the big New Years Day sale… I stopped myself from buying anything until after we went to the sale.  Armed with a list, I was at the Starbucks next door at 9:15 am.  By 10, there was a bit of a crowd. The details of the sale was 1-2 books, 20% off.  3-4 books, 25% off.  5 or more, 30% off.  They also […]

The time Gregg Olsen told me he signed a book for me

The time Gregg Olsen told me he signed a book for me

I saw the book Envy by Gregg Olsen right after it came out. Always attracted to a pretty cover, I grabbed it and read the synopsis. I was intrigued, but I didn’t allow myself to buy it. I was trying to be good. Instead, I looked up signed copies and couldn’t find any. I hunted down Gregg on Twitter and asked if he was doing any signings…. Of course right after that, I found an event in Seattle at The […]

The time I bought even more autographed books

The time I bought even more autographed books

A Beautiful Dark had been on my to read list for a while.  I was able to hunt down an autographed copy from Books of Wonder in NYC… Ordering it was super easy and it came in the mail quickly. 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 […]

The time there may have been weapons

The time there may have been weapons

I only went to the Patricia Cornwell signing because she wrote an amazing book applying forensic science to identify Jack the Ripper. When I saw that she was going to be at Warwick’s, I asked her online if she’d sign that book instead of the new one. As soon as she said yes, I bought the book. Assigned seating was already gone by the time I made my way to La Jolla to get the book. So, that just meant […]

The time I learned about life

The time I learned about life

I heard about the Jane Lynch signing easily 6 weeks before it was scheduled to happen. I had the event page to The Grove left open on my phone. I kept checking on it to see what the requirements were going to be. Finally they posted it: wristbands would be given out on the day of the event, starting at 9am with the purchase of her book. > Now, I thought this was going to be a nightmare. Being a […]

The time I paid attention

The time I paid attention

I actually noticed all of the talk that was going around about Legend. It was everywhere. Once I read the synopsis of the book, I was definitely interested. I found Marie online and saw that her release party was going to be held at MGRB. That’s all it took. We got up to the store about an hour before the start time. I immediately went to the signed YA section see what was there… I didn’t get to stay long […]

The time I bought more autographed books

The time I bought more autographed books

One day I had to stay late at work.  With my phone about to die and no charger with me, I convinced my boss to let me leave for a few minutes to run across the street to buy a book to read.  Matched by Ally Condie was on my Wish List and the first book I saw, so I grabbed it.  And I devoured it in two days.  Quickly did a search for Ally online to see what her […]
