Blogger Times: Stacking the Shelves

Wow! I must say I've purchased quiet a few books the last month or so . . . My stacking the shelves will be full of newly released books as well books that were released in the last two years.

So what did I buy? Where did I buy them from? What am I looking out for now?

I was also at the Red Ballon Bookshop for Jeri Smith-Ready event, she talks about how media has changed between the authors and readers. Twitter, tumblr, FaceBook, Ects are all an important technology media. The dynamic between authors and readers has changed so much in the past few years due to the improvment of technology.
I also told Jeri that I haven't read her books yet, one of my many reader problems but she hoped that I'll enjoy her books. She signed each of my copies of her Shade Series, and she had Shine Booksmarks.
Andrea Cremer and David Levithan were are Red Balloon a few days before and while I was on the hunt for Invisibility at Barnes and Noble I couldn't find it. But I gain something more out of my purchase at Red Balloon, they were nice enough to sign books as "Signed Copy". I can't pass up any signed books.
