In My Mailbox (Mar. 28th, 2010) - AKA WEEK OF AWESOME

In My Mailbox is hosted by Kristi at The Story Siren (inspired by Alea of Pop Culture Junkie) and explores the content of your mailbox!

Okay, I went crazy this week.  Totally and utterly insane.  Why you ask?  Well, it is not because I bought a lot of books - rather, that I bought a bunch of books I already own!

Two words, people: SIGNED COPIES.  First off, there was the amazing Kelley Armstrong signing - where I got two more copies (now with lovely dedications) of The Summoning and The Awakening.  I also asked her to sign a hardback copy of Frostbitten  (but never mind that, as it does not fit with my theme.)

And while I was there, I figured I might as well roll with it.  SO - because I had to miss both the Richelle Mead AND Charlaine Harris signings - I got signed copies of their books as well.  From Forbidden Planet, I got a second copy of Dead until Dark by Charlaine Harris and Succubus Blues by Richelle Mead.  I then popped up the road to Foyles and got the a old-UK-edition signed copy of Vampire Academy by Richelle Mead.  So now I have three books signed by Richelle Mead, and have not even met the dear lady!  It is actually rather odd.

On the non-signed front, I got two amazing books - one of which resulted in its very own post of OMGSQUEE.  The Mystery of Grace by Charles de Lint which I had been wanting for quite a while, and...
THE RECKONING by Kelley Armstrong!

Needless to say, I was very excited to get my hands on it almost two weeks early.  I stumbled upon it completely by chance at a Waterstone's (whose identity I shall keep secret in order not to alert them of their mistake) and snatched it off the shelf before someone could pry it from my cold, dead hands.  I did have a slight moment of panic as I went up to the till, wondering if some sort of warning alarm would alert them of their error.  Needless to say, it did not.  And I?  Well I am a very, very happy bunny.  ♥

Okay, I am done cooing over all my new, shiny, lovely, beauuuuuutiful books.

Or, maybe I'm not.  ;)  Happy, HAPPY week!
