February In Review

February 28, 2014 Month in Review 2

Month In ReviewFebruary was a month filled with awesome book signings! Kate from Midnight Book Girl and I went to several of them and had a blast at each!

First up was a signing in Richmond with Meagan Spooner and Amie Kaufman (Lissa Price and Jodi Meadows couldn’t make it). We had such a great time and it was a very casual event. Next up was the Dark Days Tour up in Bethesda, MD. The Dark Days Tour was packed but we got to see a few of our DC area blogger friends and chat a bit while we were waiting in the crazy signing line! Last up was the Lovestruck Tour in Chapel Hill, NC. This was a more casual event as well and Kate and I got a chance to chat with all the authors for a bit and I’m pleased to say I don’t believe I embarrassed myself!

I love going to all these signings but I am glad that we don’t have any more for awhile because I am tired of all the traveling!

Obviously my plan to buy less books did not work out so great this month. But I went to a lot of signings so that makes it ok, right?

    When I was scrolling through all the books you bought I was thinking “oh Kim…” *tsk tsk* However, then I read the part where you clarified that most books bought were done during book signings. That so doesn’t count! You are there to support the author and the book store so any books bought during book signings is like buying a ticket to go see a concert. When you look at it that way, the books are a free perk!
    I’m also very impressed with how highly you rated all the books you reviewed in February! That is some good reading!

    Look at all of the lovely books you got last month! So jealous of all the signings you were able to go to, as that’s one of the things I miss since moving. Hope you enjoy Split Second as much as I did, and love that you bought your own copy after borrowing it! Enjoy!
