Hello my Shelfari friends!!
It has certainly been a while! I hope everyone is doing well and cheering like mad for the Olympic teams?
I'm on "summer" at the moment which really means, since I've graduated with a bachelors and all, that I'm biding my time as I "prepare" to research schools for a Master's degree. :] Of course, that being said, I have signed up for extra classes for Fall because I am such a nerd. I can't remember when I was last on so I'll detail my biblio-escapades here for all to see. This year at Comic Con San Diego, my friend and I set our focus on the publishing booths and snagged roughly 30 novels each for reading. Hooray for promotional books and ARCs! I also met and had a few books signed by wonderful up and coming authors.
Before that, I stumbled across the first American Edition of John Fowles' The Collector at a local used book store and was ingeniously talked into buying it. It's now sitting on my shelf in a zip-loc baggie looking smug.
All in all thing's are going fair over here. And hopefully more fair as I kick myself into gear and get to work!
On another note Tony, I may have inexplicably fallen head first into the depths of hockey with no real chance of climbing out.
Looks like we're finally getting a heat wave here in Southern California. Though I will say it's about time, heat waves make me want to lounge on the floor and do absolutely nothing except maybe complain.
How's everyone else doing?
