Books We Bought After Comic-Con

It's been a month since Comic-Con and the PALS have been busy reading. And talking. And buying.

We reviewed our agreement to review the samplers and will continue doing it.

We discussed writing reviews of books when we felt like it. We've posted some of them already.

Then someone had the bright idea of keeping track of the books we bought as a result of Comic-Con. That inspired much discussion.

One member sat through a panel that was in the room just before the program she really wanted to attend. It's something people do if they really want a seat at a panel. The first panel  was so interesting she ordered the book from Amazon on her iPad during the Q&A.

Another member was grabbed by a sampler and realized she had picked up a copy of the author's first book. She enjoyed it so much she bought the rest of the trilogy and has preordered the sampler book.

A third member liked a free book so much she bought another one by the author.

A fourth member bought the third volume of Don Rosa's Uncle Scrooge collection from Fantographics because she saw it while she was waiting in line for a book signing. She was thrilled to learn he'd be there the next day and delightedly had her book signed by him.

We all remembered Naomi Novik's Uprooted sampler from last year.

It was agreed we would alert the PALS scribe to any book purchased as a result of anything Comic-Con and she would post the information.
