Signed books!!

My wonderful son and his wife were at the Manchester, NH book signing recently and got me 20th Century Ghosts and Horns SIGNED!! I was just so thrilled....imagine a blonde teenager at a Beatles concert in the 60s! Honestly, I scared the UPS guy shitless probably. My son even got a small video clip of the actual signing. This is the best present I have EVER gotten. He said he thought he recognized my son, and since my son is a bit on the humble side, he probably listened to his band All Star United several years ago. My son plays crazy keyboard! I wish you all the best, you are so easy and fun to read. Heart Shaped Box was excellent, I cant wait to add to my "Hill collection". Dont mean to gush, but....DAYUM!!
Highest regards,
TByrd

I am happy to have a really good collection of Joe Hill signed treasures.
They get the top and center....As for that Koontz book that SOMEBODY from my workplace insisted I read, well it's not in my favorite book cabinet at all, rather on the "heap" shelf along with other gifts such as WHO MOVED MY CHEESE, and The ATKINS DIET (I'm thin enough) I havent found a sucker yet to take any of them, so I will have to burden the Salvation army with them! Or KINDLE!!!

Hey grasshopper! Good to see ya!
Hubby makes me purge my books a couple of times a year but I'm pretty much down to the ones I want to keep and I still don't have enough bookshelves. Heading down to the Rescue Mission Store today to look for some. BTW, my library takes donations for books as well as SA & Goodwill.

I have all my books is bankers boxs at the moment. I guess that is where they are going to stay until we find a more permanent home.
