Burritos & Books!

I’ve been accumulating a list of books to buy for several months now, so when Ink Exchange by Melissa Marr came out today, I had to give in and go to the store. Denver has the most wonderful independent book store, The Tattered Cover (actually there are 3 locations), and the one closest to me inhabits a converted theater. It also happens to have a Chipotle in the building, so Husband and I made a date of it! B&B is one of my favorite things… 

Well doesn’t it just figure when I get inside that there is an author event going on downstairs where all the YA is, and it’s not even a YA author?? I could hear the guy from the top of the stairs and it took me two flush-faced attempts to force myself down the steps. I felt bad skirting the back wall poking through the YA while this guy spoke to stuffy adults, but I couldn’t leave unsatisfied! Plus I have major authority-figure anxiety and I guess published authors of any genre make me go noodle-brained too. I couldn’t wait to get out of there – but I got INK! I also picked up Good Girls by Laura Ruby. I wanted Wake by Lisa McMann, but they either didn’t have it, or some person interested in the Non-Fiction talk was in the way. *sigh*

Anyway, think I’ll give myself the night off from writing and dive in. I hope this doesn’t lead to an up-all-night-gotta-finish-cause-its-too-good marathon. I want to savor a bit!
