Default Robin Hobb

Oh goody, I will be enjoying my holidays with a book of one of my favourite authors: Robin Hobb has returned to my fav universes she created, with Fool's Assassin, volume 1 (great, there will be more!) in the Fitz and the Fool series. So one of my fac characters to boot!

And there's already a reasonably priced ebook version for €10 on ibookstore (with Amazon's Kindle demanding €12!).

She was, but I didn't see either her or GRRM up close/at all there. Luckily, she did a signing the week before in Sheffield... Which saved me from carrying four heavy hardbacks all the way to London!

Plus you have less chance of a signing book-limit at a bookstore than at the con!

I'm not counting on here coming over to here to sign...
