Just got home from my second day at Chicago's Printers Row Lit Fest. Between yesterday and today, I only ended up buying 51 books. ;-)

The dreadful hollow
End of chapter
Prisoner's base
The sport of queens
The Anubis gates
The fine art of literary mayhem
The Hardy Boys detective handbook
Three good deeds
Magic for dummies
Richard Castle's deadly storm
The mysterious Mr. Quin
Taken at the flood
Three blind mice and other stories
Ordeal by innocence
Caribbean mystery
They do it with mirrors
A pocket full of rye
The mousetrap and other plays
The case of the demure defendant
The case of the runaway corpse
All our yesterdays
The corpse in the snowman
The sad variety
The morning after death
Lady killer
Like love
Odds against
Homicide trinity
He who whispers
And so to murder
Behind the crimson blind
Brandy & bullets
Artists in crime
Death of a peer
Dead man's folly
Murder in retrospect
The under dog and other stories
Double sin and other stories
N or M?
The secret of chimneys
The seven dials mystery
The headless cupid
Earth power

Thom Swennes (Yorrick) | 592 comments It looks like a good haul........ I would say that you were fortunate; my wife would say. better you than me. She isn't happy with the books that are overflowing from my library and slowly filling up the rest of our house.

Karen M | 418 comments Amazon offered me 50% off one book because I became a Kindle Scout a while ago (don't ask) so I purchased Bastion Saturn.

Boy, if my trip to Printer's Row was something earlier this month, my visit to the ALA Convention in Chicago July 24-26 was even better, because I came home with ONE HUNDRED AND EIGHTY SIX books, most were ARCs, but they were all FREE! On top of that, I got autographs from 36 different authors, too! Believe it or not, I am actually not going to keep every book, but it's certainly going to take some time to go through them to decide what I want to keep as I catalog and decide what I want to bring to the library where I work to use for prizes for our summer reading program. It's a good thing the ALA Convention only visits Chicago every four years, because it sure does feed a bibliophile's addiction something awful. ;-) All in all, I felt like Templeton at the fair, this was a veritable smorgasbord of books for a bibliophile.

Dimitri | 109 comments The delights of the independent secondhand bookstore. Eagled out a Foilo Society Edition of Pakenham's The Boer War and in the afterbrowse dragged Panzer Commander: The Memoirs of Colonel Hans von Luck from amidst a pile of musty $2 paperbacks.

Karen M | 418 comments Did it again. This time I downloaded Not My Father's Son by Alan Cumming. I had seen him interviewed a while back about the book so when I got an email from HarperCollins about ebooks on sale, of course I had to buy it! I'm not a self-proclaimed book junkie for nothing!! LOL
