Boskone Book Buying Binge

This past weekend we were at Boskone. As some of you know, we are obsessive book buyers, and we go on binges two-three times per year (Boskone, Worldcon, Albacon). This year, since we're not going to Worldcon, we're rather expecting to go to Readercon for a day membership just to keep up with Larry's stock!

from Small Beer Press
Stranger Things Happen by Kelly Link
Lady Churchill's Rosebud Wristlet #13
Lady Churchill's Rosebud Wristlet #15
Family Reunion (a comic from the novel A Perfect Circle (free)

The Autumn Castle by Kim Wilkins
Orphanage by Robert Buettner
Less Than Human by Maxine McArthur

All three of these freebies look interesting to me, and I was only allowed two at the beginning (one for me and one for Kev) and at the end of the con I went back to see if there were still more so I could beg for the third (which I successfully did). The other two books they had for freebies were both of Karin Lowachee's, which since I owned them already, I simply told everyone else to pick them and read them NOW.

I'm apparently missing one Luna book, which Larry didn't have in stock. I'm trying to own all of them (silly me!). I need to figure out which one is missing and get Maria over at FoF to order it for me.

Note, I've now noticed that Katie MacAlister writes YA novels as Katie Maxwell, something which I must investigate!

And I'm sure you can see a trend in the above. MOST of the books bought are for me... *grins* I have got a TON of reading to do!!
