Loot from RT!!

Okay, I figure this is the question most of you are wondering. What books did I get from the convention? I just got home yesterday from Georgia. I had to finish up audits for work. Of course the first thing I did was hug my hubbie and kids and then I was like, "Do you mind if I go through my books?" I know. I am totally obsessed.

I don't think I would have brought back as many books as I did last year if it wasn't for Mary's generosity. She had won the drawing for several erotic gift baskets given away at RT. She already owned some of the books so she ended up gifting me with the complete collection of Wolf Tales and Sexy Beast books by Kate Douglas. She also gave me Elizabeth Amber's Lord of the Satyr series.

Like I did last year, I tallied up all the books and their costs. The grand worth of the books I brought home this year is a whopping $700.93!!! I brought home a total of 64 books and 36 of them were signed by the author. That covers the cost of the convention fees and my airfare. How awesome is that?!

Here is a list of the books I was given at RT. Books in RED are signed by the author:

Lori said...

Wow. Excellent haul, Jill!

Hey - is the Naked Baron the next in the Naked Series? I can't remember and I'm too lazy to look it up :)

Lover of Romance said...

Sounds like some great books that you brought home with you from the convention!!!

Hilcia said...

You brought home some great books, Jill. Now you enjoy them. :D

I see you got the complete Kate Douglas PNR/erotica series. I have to catch up with that one, I'm up to #6. :D

Maija A. said...

I'm so jealous! What a great list of books :)

Linda Y said...

Haha love the way you think!! My books must have equaled more than the price of the convention too i'm sure. Yess i am totally justified :)

Leslie said...

Great list Jill. Now you need to go shopping for a bookcase. :)

Christine said...

Wow that's a lot of books!! Forget about where you're going to put them all.... how are you going to decide what to read first! :D

Lori - Actually, I have no idea the order of the Naked series. I haven't read any of those books yet. Did you like them?

Hilcia - I had only read book two of the Wolf Tales books. I have a lot of catching up to do too!

Linda!!! Yay you commented!! I thought it would be fun to tally up the actual value of the books. I think I was justified in spending the $17.00 I spent to ship a box of books home, too.

Leslie - Tell me about it. I am packing up my cd collection to make more room on my shelves in the den. Otherwise I will have to go out and buy more shelves.

Christine - My goodness! It is hard choice on deciding what to read, LOL! I read one of the wolf tales books and then started on the Sabrina Jeffries book. She read a chapter at RT and I was completely hooked. I have to finish it, LOL!

Kristie (J) said...

I just posted my haul too *g*. When I was 'cataloguing' them, I had the first book by Jamie Rush. Then I came across the third one. I thought 'Dang! Wish I had the second one.' Then a number of books later, lo and behold - there was the second one. Gotta love it when you get a whole series at once!!

~ames~ said...

OMG That's so awesome!! Good stuff Jill!

You have some good reading ahead of you, that's for sure!

nath said...

Great haul, Jill :D I don't think I had as many... and now you can read Kelley Armstrong YA!!

So which books went to the top of your TBR?

Jill D. said...

Kristie - Wow, you got a whole series??? That is so cool!!!

Ames - I know right, so what should I read first??!!

Nath - Well, I just finished the Sabrina Jeffries book we were playing bingo to. It was pretty good. Review to follow soon. I have no clue what I am going to read next... stay tuned, LOL!

Kris said...

Wow chica!! That is a great haul, so many books, so little time :)
