A big weekend in Dallas for signings — tonight we have the Naughty Girls of Downtown Press. They’ll be signing at the Waldenbooks in Lewisville at 6pm and we’ll be going out after to talk about them. Yeah, we’ll be chatting about them and I’m already conflicted, but we’ll see. All their books are trade size, so this will either break the book budget or we’ll just smile nice.
I heard LETHAL was very good, but I haven’t gotten it to read and the excerpt didn’t really grab me. However, I might take along my reading glasses and give it a look before making the BIG decision.
Doing the sour grapes whine because as for most of us, money is tight and at $13 plus per book, book purchase decision is a BIG deal these days. When you spend as much as I do on books and read as fast as I do, getting one book versus two or three means that one book better be darned terrific!
Besides, we’re doing dinner after and I’ll need a margarita after dealing with the traffic to get to Lewisville by 6pm! Timing is EVERYTHING.
Back to the purchase dilemma — how are YOU dealing with it? Do you use a library? Share with a friend? Buy it used? Just wait until (if ever) it comes out in mass market (cheaper size)? I’m curious and I’d like to hear from you.
