I buy myself stuff when birthday time comes around 'cause I don't want other people spending money on me. Yeah, I'm weird like that. I just don't like it. It's your money. You worked for it. Buy yourself something nice.
This year I decided to spread my bday stuff over two months. April and May. And it was all book stuff. I'm such a happy camper.
Here we go: I got myself the kindle paperwhite. Gah. I love it. It will now be going with me everywhere. I've been reading a lot and have also started posting reviews to my blog and Goodreads. I'm so happy with this.
And I got this cover to go with it.
Books! I picked up books 3 and 4 of The Black Sun's Daughter authored by MLN Hanover. I'm only a little annoyed that books 1 and 2 do not match 3 and 4. I LOVED the original cover but so it goes. Here are the different covers.
|I have books 1 and 2.|

Here's my copy of The Shining girls. I was lucky enough to snag one of the 1000 limited editions, signed by Lauren.
My awesome family contributed to the purchase of this. A brand new boofshelf for my reading room. Isn't it gorgeous! I assembled this sucker myself and only have one scar to show for it. My sister got me a coffee maker. I'll tweet a pic of it when I use it this weekend.
My fantastic friends and CPs both sent me books and bookmarks. Thanks Kat and Juliana.
|Good book! Get yourself a copy stat.|
|Dragons from Kat! She knows me well.|
|Another fantastic book!|
Lastly, I GOT TO SEE CHEVELLE LIVE YESTERDAY!!! They are my most favorite band EVER. The were supposed to come to South Africa in 2011. For some reason they couldn't make it but promised to come back. They kept their promised. I only freaked out a little. Ok, maybe a lot.

|We had amazing seat, though from the photo it doesn't look like it. Blame the camera.|
