April Happenings

I've been slacking a bit on my blogging in the past couple weeks...well, except for my read-a-thon updates. Anyway I just thought I'd let you know what I was up to last month.

Books read but not yet reviewed 
(book names are linked to Goodreads, Author names are linked to their websites or blogs)

Fifty Shades of Grey and All U Can Eat are Erotica and I haven't decided if I'll be reviewing them here.


Book Signings Galore

I went to two big signings at Turn The Page Bookstore in Maryland last month. That's a total of 6 hours of driving but I made it well worth my while by stocking up on awesome signed books. And don't worry, I bought a couple extra signed books to use as giveaways :)

Some of the other authors I had the pleasure of meeting:



 

At the second signing I decided it would be fun to start 
collecting signatures on this tote bag as well.



The third signing of the month was last night. I went to Cupboard Maker Books for a midnight book signing. The signing was for Jeri Smith-Ready's newest release, Shine. Again, I bought an extra copy of Shine to giveaway...and Jeri was nice enough to give me some extra signed swag that I will also be giving away in the future.



Unfortunately, I forgot to take my tote for her to sign. 
All the more reason to go to another one of her signings ;-)



That's all I have to report for now. Thanks for reading!
