In My Mailbox 37 & Recap of Author Event

In My Mailbox is a weekly meme hosted by Kristi at The Story Siren
For Review Forbidden by Tabitha Suzuma Thank you!!! Borrowed From the Library Shug by Jenny Han When You Reach Me by Rebecca Stead The Boy Book by E. Lockhart The Time Traveler's Wife by Audrey Niffenegger The Adoration of Jenna Fox by Mary E. Pearson Dancing In Red Shoes Will Kill You by Dorian Cirrone Unexpected Development by Marlene Perez (review) Dramarama by E. Lockhart Confessions of a Triple Shot Betty by Jody Gehrman Triple Shot Bettys in Love by Jody Gehrman Bought *Her Fearful Symmetry by Audrey Niffenegger * Audrey Niffenegger was in Kansas City on Wednesday and although I haven't read any of her books I quickly reserved a spot! I went to Wal-Mart and got a copy of Her Fearful Symmetry (they only had 2 copies of this book left) but I couldn't find a copy of The Time Traveler's Wife there. I called the bookstore hosting the event and asked if Audrey Niffenegger would be signing books and they told me, "Audrey will only be signing books that are bought through us," so I just picked up The Time Traveler's Wife at the library. I had just bought my copy of the book and so I was pretty upset about that. Audrey Niffenegger's even was pretty awesome! I went with my friend and we got really good seats. I didn't get far into Her Fearful Symmetry but it was okay. I am happy to say that Audrey signed my book and tons of others that weren't bought with the bookstore. I just wished I would've known that she would be signing these because I would've went out and bought The Time Traveler's Wife. Oh well, it was still a really pleasant experience. Audrey is really nice!
Also, I think this will be my last visit to the library for awhile now, except to get 2 or 3 books that I need for a challenge.
