Default Dragons Time

Last night as I was turning off the computor and getting ready to go to bed, I decided to have another quick look at the new ebay listings, you know... just in case....

Somebody had just listed an ARC/proof of the Del Rey edition of Dragons Time, and it should arrive on my doorstep in about 2 weeks time!

I had a few "issues" with the last book, but I have a better feeling about this one. The plot sounds interesting enough, and it is co-authored by Anne, which I was not aware of.

I can't wait to get it!!

How nice you found an ARC of that book; they are really rare while there must be quite a lot of them.

Are you saying that they are rare, or that there are lots of them?

Thanks Lady Maelin! My collection is coming along nicely! I'm excited to add this to it, but I'm more excited that I'll get to read it 2 months before the publication date!! The only problem of course, is that I will have to wait until everybody else has read it before I can discuss it! Pure torture!!!

I have actually added a few very nice pieces to my collection recently.... I'm a busy little collector, and the exchange rate is soo good for me right now, that it's hard to say "no". Yes. I am addicted to buying Anne's books. Am I looking for a cure to this addiction? Umm, to put it plainly - no!!!

I'll try take some photos over the weekend. I have a few new goodies....

I am saying that there should be quite a lot of them around but you hardly see them up for sale.

People do have a tendency to hang on to an ARC, if they have a chance to get one...walla...you don't see to many of them for sale...so you are very lucky that you got the chance to buy one...as for reading it early...just enjoy the early reading.
