You know you still have your appreciation of reading and reader’s mojo intact when you receive book presents in the mail from awesome friends…and you immediately want to lick the books.
I can’t be the only one who’s ever hugged a book that arrived in the mail like it was their long lost bestie and then almost licked it. I only refrained because I was at work and it was early and I didn’t want ribbing about it for an entire day. Now, if it had been an hour left before leave time – yeah, I’d have licked it!
Maybe I’ll lick this book when I get home tonight:
You may not know it, and you might, but I’m a HUGE Kim Harrison fan. Colossal. Her Rachel Morgan series has been my most favorite reading choice for the last several years. I gorge on her words and just can’t get enough of these books.
She signed it.
One good turn deserves another.
Classic Rachel Morgan speak! Ahhhhhhhh! *hugs book* *again*
It is my most fervent reader wish to meet Harrison one day and have my thirty seconds of allotted time saying everything I feel for her books, how happy they’ve made me. Without, hopefully, sounding like a deranged idiot. I’ll shoot for only mildly so should it ever happen.
There was even a fantabulous extra goody, a conference badge for the Witch’s Annual Business Conference, which Rachel attends in Pale Demon.
I’m flipping out in total reader dorkdom!
I also received a lovely signed copy of Thea Harrison’s Dragon Bound – roowwrr! A totally awesome, wonderful paranormal romance whose sequel I thirst for. There were even some of her romance trading cards, which I was psyched to get since they’re the rage right now. They’re super cute and very nice quality card stock paper, with descriptions of each book’s hero and heroine on the backs.
I owe a huge thanks to my wonderful friend, Hilcia at Impressions of a Reader for sending me the books! She attended the RWA Literacy Signing in New York City this year, an event I so need to attend one day. A huge room filled with tons of authors and books – bliss!
I am a happy reading pony!
How do you celebrate when your love of reading gets a little rambunctious? Ever licked a book? Heh.
