I finally got my anticipated bookstore trip last night, and, as I had to immediately share on Twitter and FB, I managed to snag the last signed copy of Prince Lestat! I snatched it up and hugged it, like there was some chance someone would try to take it from me. There was another lady shopping through the signed editions and asked me what I'd gotten the last copy of. I was grinning like an idiot when I showed her. I geeked out. It was nerdy, and not pretty.
Now, if I hope to meet my deadline, I have to keep myself firmly away from any and all bookstores until after the 19th. Barnes & Noble is still selling signed editions on a first-come-first-serve basis in-store for the rest of the weekend. You can check out the list of offerings here.
