A Good Week in Books (125)

I had a bittersweet week in books. I had a nice week in general. I was visiting my family in Chicago for the week (with the boyfriend in tow). We celebrated Hanukkah, caught up with old friends, and ate our hearts out, Chicago style. I got to show my boyfriend all my favorite bookstores growing up. And we ventured over to the famous Chicago comic book stores as well. We played tourist and went to museums too.
I bought two books in Chicago. I received another as a very wonderful Hanukkah gift from the boyfriend. And one I re-purchased today after leaving my (signed!) copy on the airplane, midway through! I need to know what happens! Also, I filled out a form online with the airline, in case anyone finds it, but I think it’s gone forever. I was just in such a rush to get off the plane (that was delayed 5 hours). I don’t know what I was thinking.
But, I just about had a melt down when I realized my signed Rick Riordan book was gone. So sad. Also, I have now bought the book twice. I was going to get it from the library this time around, but I cannot wait for that copy to come. I need to know things now. And I’ll want my own.

The lovelies:
All the Bright Places by Jennifer Niven
The Sword of Summer by Rick Riordan (What was I thinking??)
Saga, Volume 1 by Brian K. Vaughan and Fiona Staples
Harry Potter and the Sorcerer’s Stone by J.K. Rowling and illustrated by Jim Kay (Thank you, Nick!)
How was your week in books?

  1. Oh man! I'm sorry you left your SIGNED book on the plane Nori!! D: That sucks the big one. Hopefully you'll get a Christmas miracle and it'll be returned to you!! At least you were able to get your hands on a new copy - AND you got the Harry Potter Illustrated edition - that's got to make you feel better?! :D Congrats on all your wonderful goodies!! xx
