Blog Hop

This is my first time to participate in a book blogger hop, so I hope I get it right.  The hop is hosted by Jennifer at Crazy for Books, who asks this week's question:

RIGHT THIS INSTANT, WHAT BOOK ARE YOU DYING TO GET YOUR HANDS ON (PAST, PRESENT, OR FUTURE)?

Well I'd probably kill for a copy of Mockingjay right about now, but I'm sure everyone else will be posting that as well.  Here's a more unique reply:

First editions (or unique editions) of works by C.S. Lewis.  The bestie and I are going to the Tennessee Antiquarian Book Fair this weekend and will be attending a lecture by the world's leading Lewis collector, Dr. Edwin W. Brown.  He owns the world's best collection of works by Lewis.  Who just so happens to be my favorite author.  The lecture is on collecting the works of Lewis and I would just love to show up with a really unique book to have appraised.  In fact, Luke and I are going hunting for one tonight.  Wish me luck!

Look for a post later today about my sweet, precious Mama and what I credit for my love of books.  Over the weekend I'll have some book fair pictures!

  1. This is exactly how I would have answered this question. Mockingjay is taking way to long to come out is all I can say.

  2. Hi Julie, found you through the Hop! Much like yourself, I adore Mary Kay Andrews. I found my first MKA at a garage sale and the woman told me I would enjoy it and I did!

    Have a great weekend, Bonnie

  6. I found you on the hop and became a follower. Mockingjay is a popular choice. I just got Catching Fire in the mail :) My husband and I are CS Lewis fans as well. A first edition would be really cool. Have fun in TN.
