Ok, obviously I have a problem. I believe the name of that problem this month was the virtual signing of The Beast. That was about half my book spending in February. There was also a signing I attended, and of course had to buy some of the author’s books. I thought that getting back into Paperback Swap would be a big help to me. Unfortunately, I’m not crazy about the condition I receive the books in. I am so particular about how the books look on the shelf. I should also add how they smell.

Anyhow, despite the large monetary value of books I purchased this month, the haul itself was not very big. Besides my excitement for grabbing the VS of The Beast, I also picked up Lover Eternal. That is the last one of the series I didn’t have in hard cover. I was truly hoping that they would hold a VS for it, but I have finally given up and just added it to the shelves. I can’t tell you how excited I am to have the whole series all tucked nicely on the shelf. *sigh* It’s awesome.
