Stacking the Shelves #24

Hosted & created by Tynga's Reviews This post is my weekly update about the shiny new books I have bought (I know I need to stop buying them), won (I love to enter giveaways) or received from authors or others. As well as purses I buy or receive, of course! Click the photo to go to or to read more about the books or to purchase a copy.
Saturday I was invited to The Southern California Independent Booksellers Association (SCIBA) Authors Fest and I had a ball!!!  It was like Christmas and my birthday all wrapped into one.  
At 5pm-ish James (the owner of Esowon Bookstore), Jill (friend of James) and I showed up at the amazing Queen Mary in Long Beach, Ca.  The ship was decked out for Halloween and on the fourth floor deck was the a room full of books and a dinning room where we had a great dinner.  The event was like a mini BEA and there were free books everywhere.  The authors were there to sign some of them too! And of course I have a few that I added to my e-bookshelf.  So many books!!
So what did I get?  Here is the massive list.

I also got a few bags to haul all of these goodies to James' car with.  Happily, I made everything fit into 3 bags!  James had 4 and Jill just one.  And can you believe I have more to tell you about?  I was wondering around iTunes and came across a free audiobook.  Yes Free! Now how many free audiobooks do you think are on iTunes?  I know that is why I snatched it up.
