WriterlyWednesdays: Books n’ Thangs

As Written on A Thursday Because Reasons

Mea culpa for the technical difficulties, my recorded notes messed up and I hope to have something salvaged for next week. In the meantime, indulge me with the addictive side to being a bibliophile.

First stop: Vendor Room

I like to make sure I arrive early to events, to work, to anything, really. Upon arriving at the Creative Ink Festival at the Delta Burnaby Hotel & Conference Centre I still had thirty minutes before my first panel, so naturally, I went straight for the books

… and was mesmerized enough to miss that first panel, but I digress.

Did I mention how I was glad that it was payday on the first day of the festival?

This collection is the majority of my purchases. I also bought picture books and because I couldn’t wait after reading a sample of a series I discovered there–and its author turned out to be a speaker at the one of the panels I went to this festival for–I purchased the all the ebooks written by Adam Dreece.

Here’s the low-down of the books. What I’d like to do in the next while is go through all these books and do reviews on them. I’ll revive FridayForage for this book review series. I still have two library books I’m currently reading so this will probably start mid to late June.

PROS:

  • Got a lot of the authors who were present for the festival to sign the physical copies of the books.
  • Saved money on purchasing ebooks, saved my back from lugging more books home, saved space on my bookshelf that’s busting at the seams.

CONS:

  • There are at least a dozen more books that I didn’t purchase that day. Ugh.

 

Such an interesting array of books here. Steampunk, fantasy, anthologies, series. I don’t know where to begin but know for a certainty that my ever growing TBR pile will never dwindle.

Until next time…
