The non-fantasy books I got were: The Lovely Bones by Alice Sebold; The Choice by Nicholas Sparks; The Second Summer of the Sisterhood by Ann Brashares; The Lake House by James Patterson; The Lost Symbol by Dan Brown and Cold Mountain by Charles Frazier.
I also attended another bookish event the weekend before last: The 2011 Annual General Meeting of the Jane Austen Society of North America! It was held here in Fort Worth; the bulk of the conference was during the week, so I wasn't able to attend any of the breakout sessions (classes and work), but I did get to browse the vendors and get some books signed when I was there to help set up for brunch on that Sunday. Many people attending the JASNA conferences wear Regency period dress, and it was a lot of fun to see! I wish I could have been there to see the ball, but I have had a lot of schoolwork this semester, so the time I had to help out was pretty limited.
I also got a tshirt, a pocket mirror, and some really cute buttons from one of the vendors, Emily from Meryton Marketplace. She was also very generous, and donated some items for a giveaway I will be hosting in the near future - the main feature of which will be Jane Austen for Dummies, which I had signed by the author, Dr. Joan Klingel Ray. I have a copy of my own that I'd had signed quite a while back, and it's an excellent resource for Janeites and Jane Austen newbies alike! Keep an eye out for the giveaway post and for a review of the main attraction.
I also received some actual mail in my mailbox! I received another RAK, this time from Amanda at Letters Inside Out. She sent me an ARC of Liesl & Po, which I am really excited about reading, as I've heard so many wonderful things about it! Thank you, thank you, thank you, Amanda!
And, I got the last two books from my Amazon order: Exodus by Julie Bertagna and Runemarks by Joanne Harris! Annnnd my ARC of Tempest by Julie Cross came in the mail, too! I've had a great couple of weeks for books! What about you?
