Well, after spending most of the weekend doing nothing but sleeping; seriously - I went to bed at 7:45 on Friday night and did a lot more all weekend, I finally feel like I'm getting back in my groove. As you can see, I didn't get around to recaping the rest of the week. I had plans to, but the need for zzzzzz's trumped the desire to recap.
One of the few things I did manage to get done was cataloging the books I brought back. I still haven't really unpacked yet, but the books are now up-to-date in LibraryThing, Shelfari, Goodreads and the spread sheet. It's all about priorities.
But I did want to mention a couple more workshops I made it too. I've pretty much decided that I need to get an ereader so when I saw a workshop that Jane of DA, Sarah of SB and Angie of Carina Press were putting on, I thought I'd get some good info. The only trouble was I think I was the only one in the room that didn't already have one and the conversation was over my head for a lot of it. But I did get enough by osmosis to realize that there isn't a devise that has everything I want.
I've decided to go with the Kobo. I like the price!!! $149.00 is pretty hard to turn your nose up at. Unlike the Kindle, you aren't limited to buying books just from Chapters, the store that supports it in Canada. It doesn't have WiFi like the Kindle and Nook do, but then that will also allow me to shop at some of the smaller epresses which is what I wanted. I think I'll order one in the next couple of days. I can only hope that it isn't too hard to download from the computer to the reader. I shall be crossing my fingers that day let me tell you!!

I probably would have got even more at the book signing but alas, I wimped out. But still, I think I did rather fine. They were all from the conference. Nath and I made a run to a bookstore and then we went to another one along with Mollie. With the price being so different in the US as opposed to Canada and the dollar being almost par and Nath having coupons, well it just didn't make sense for us not to go!
I wish I hadn't pooped out as there was so much other stuff going on that kept us going almost non stop. But enough to say it was such a wonderful time and I can hardly wait until my next one!!
