Signed Book Acquisition!


I made a new friend at the Harper Collins event in NYC!  She’s a Senior Marketing Director at William Morrow, and she sent me a copy of Christopher Moore’s new book Sacre Bleu.  Little did I know, it would be a SIGNED copy.  Those of you in the know are probably aware that Lamb is one of my all-time favorite books, so this was very exciting for me!  (Thanks Tavia!)

I live in a Chicago suburb with my husband and a house full of books. Book collecting, reading, and reviewing consume my life. I have a special affinity for all things Alice in Wonderland. I began my education at Carthage College, wanting to be an English teacher. Eventually I decided that Carthage and I weren’t a good fit anymore, so I transferred to North Park University, where I realized I didn’t want to be a teacher. So I finished my education with a degree in English with a writing concentration. I was always a voracious reader and wrote my first review in April 2007. I don’t remember why exactly I decided to write a review, only that I had just finished The Agony and the Ecstasy and had a strong feeling that I needed to express how I felt about it. This inspired me to write reviews about each book I wrote and after posting on Amazon for two years, I was invited into the Amazon Vine program. I am also an active reviewer/member of Goodreads and enjoy being an active member of the online book community.

  1. That is fantastic! I absolutely love LAMB, too. My brother got me the special edition (Bible-looking cover) a couple of Christmases ago. Hilarious book.

    • That’s it, Jenn, we’re officially kindred spirits! What I love about LAMB is that it’s so funny, but conveys a lot of emotion, too. I love Biff’s loyalty. Read it twice, and both times it resonated with me.
