Incoming: GollanczFest Edition

A bit of a bumper crop this week. I attended the fantastic GollanczFest event at London Picadilly yesterday and, as always, hearing some of the authors speak made me change my mind about wanting to read their books. I bought a few in store to get signed and then came back and got a few more in ebook form. Check out their sale as most of the featured authors have ebooks available for £1.99. I also have a couple of review copies from Gollancz for next year too.

I also received my Ninja Book Swap gift from Louise which came with a bunch of cute dinosaur stuff. Then the Moomins book was part of Waterstones' Buy Books for Syria campaign. So basically I got a free book in exchange for a donation.

This is pretty much my last splurge of the year, what with my birthday and Christmas fast approaching, I shouldn't be buying myself stuff. Not to mention I have an awful lot to keep me going (I know, when has that ever stopped me?).
