Ok, I’ve decided that there can be such a thing as too many meetups. Although it was really nice to see everyone today, I was really too tired after yesterday to properly enjoy it. Plus the cafe was really crowded, so we all (me, lytteltonwitch, alkaline-kiwi and friend, otakuu and children, and awhina and the kitten) had to squeeze uncomfortably round a very small table, which also reduced the enjoyment factor.
Anyway, I released a book in the cafe (Out to Lunch by Tania Kindersley, which seemed appropriate), and passed on a couple I’d hurriedly registered this morning just to have something to take to the meetup (The Autograph Man by Zadie Smith and The Veiled One by Ruth Rendell), and lytteltonwitch gave me a couple of books she thought I might like to use for themed releases (Women’s Work by Anne Tolstoi Wallach and Twenty Treasure Chests).
And now I really must get on with my Spanish homework!
