    1. Hi, Jillyn!

      Well, I sure hope you'll consider picking up one or two. The Magicians books look fascinating!

      What bookworm wouldn't want a signed book? Lol. You know the feeling yourself!

      I'm going over to see what you got. Thanks for visiting and commenting!! : )

  3. As usual the books that you acquire are look so good.

    I looked up some of De Lint's work on Amazon. His Newford stories look to be really offbeat and fun. Have you read many of these stories?

    1. Hey, Brian!

      To be honest, I've only read one short story collection of his, titled "Dream Underfoot". All the stories are about a fictional town named Newford, located somewhere in North America. Just from that one book, De Lint became one of my favorite writers! He's THAT good!! I know you'll really enjoy reading these stories, so I heartily recommend them to you. And I intend to read more of his books, when I find the time!

  4. Wow! You got a nice well-rounded selection.
    Your blog is beautiful.
