as i was posing for this, i was thinking to myself, "how fitting! this truly is like being trapped in a bubble, because even though i was only 'eh' about the first one, and definitely 'thumbs-down' about the second one, i am totally going to have to read the third one to see how it all ends..."



trapped.

Robert I agree as well.

Thing was damned hard, though.

Thanks! I have to say, the dudes taking the pictures seemed like the happiest promo peeps at BEA.

(Much happier than the ladies whose undies showed through their angel costumes in the god/infinite life/whatever cult booth)

karen hahaah were you only there the one day?? there were shirtless beefcakes boys on the first day, and then way-too-hairy scrawny white boy-angels on the second...

this was at ellora's cave, though - i don't know what those girl-angels were for - they were just wandering...like olivia.

No, I was there Tuesday and Thursday, but somehow i missed all those shirtless angelboys. Darn? I dunno--do shirtless guys really encourage librarians and booksellers to pick up books?

(Wait, don't answer that!)

karen not me. but there was some squealing.

i think it was greg.


message 14: by Greg (new)

Greg If someone had remembered to charge her battery the night before there would have been sooooo many pictures of a certain someone and the guys with the black angel wings!

Maureen no offense to the author, but i would love to see this photo cropped so that it's you in the sphere within the frame. i love how the pattern of your meshes with the floor pattern? somebody's messy desk? :)


Laurice T.T How come we don't have cool stuff like this here in our place? T_T

karen we were not hanging out with them.


Eddie the glasses.... nerdy... AND sexy :)


message 19: by karen (new) - added it

karen it's true.


Bookphilia One of the girls I work with looks like the girl on the cover of the second book. In fact, when we first saw it we were adamant that the photographer must've stalked her and taken it while she was at work (it's her exact uniform too). I must do a rendition of it when I have a chance.


message 21: by karen (new) - added it

karen oooh - creepy! but cool!


MoyJoy THIS.IS.AWESOME. (and I feel the SAME way about the series!


Sarah Null I've read 75% of the book, and I wish one of my friends had finished it already so they could just tell me how it ended so I don't have to keep reading. But I'll take one for the team, if you want me to be that friend. Let me know.I mean, I've come this far...


message 24: by karen (new) - added it

karen well, i already broke down and got it... i just have to find the urge to read it now...

but do it - dooooo it. you can't stop now! i wanted to stop the book i am reading now about 20 pages in, and here i am - 10 pages from the end! it still sucks, but i did it!

almost.


Sarah Null Well as I said, I am 75% done, and I could sum up everything that has happened in the book so far in one sentence. So it's pretty tedious.


message 26: by karen (new) - added it

karen eerrgg


MoyJoy LOL! SARAH: "So it's pretty tedious" is actually a pretty accurate one sentence summary.
