Oh Man! I knew last month was going to be an expensive one when I saw just how many new releases were coming out, even more so because A LOT of my favourite authors had new books being released at the same time! Combine that with The Indie Authors Down Under Event and it seems I spent more money on books then food. Then April comes barging in and things haven’t changed, nor have they showed any sign of slowing down.
Last weekend I attended the Newcastle Writer’s Festival where I told myself I wouldn’t buy a book, that after my big book month last month, “I’d be a good girl and purchase nothing” at the festival. Three trips back to Macleans Booksellers on Saturday and another one or two on Sunday, and I obliterated that promise. But I’m happy with my purchases and can’t wait to share the books with you all. I’ll also be putting up a series of posts this week about the festival and the Indie Event. I meant to do it sooner, but with a HUGE book catalogue at work, I needed sleep more than I needed to blog…. sad but true.
NOTE: For the purpose of not making this edition novel length, I’ve decided not to include the books I purchased in print and ebooks in this edition that weren’t related to authors festivals. I’ll include them in the next one.
