    Grab Bags 2012

    I got the first grab bag of the year and every book is just beautiful. Unfortunately, I had 4 of them already, in different forms, but it was still worth the price for me.

    They just offered a new grab bag that by the time I was aware of it, it was sold out apparently. I'm so bummed as this one had 4 never released books in it. Did anyone grab this? When you get it, will you share what you got?

    I ordered it. First with be announced by the end of the month. I think it was the Novella one they said. Each book will be shipped as they come in so the shipping price was also reasonable but we will be waiting a while to find out what they all are.

    thanks everyone. I'm really looking forward to being all sad and whiny when I see what I missed out on.

    You'll still be able to order them, just not at such a great price.

    I often buy on impulse and could actually just as well do without - not this time: I passed.
    (Hope I won't come to regret this.)

    Just an FYI it's not a grab bag like the one you got. The titles ship seprately, it's basically a bundle, cheaper price, for 4 unannounced books, that you don't know what they are until we announce them and tell you you're getting them.

    Don't be sad you still can get the books and then be happy and broke like the rest of us..We all know how tough it is to pass up an offer we all have our book regrets.Mine is when they came back in stock I did not get the signed In Lymons Terms.I still got the trade but the signed would have been real nice.

    Oh, I thought it was a grab bag sort of thing. Still, it was a great opportunity. Que sera, sera (shut up Doris.)

    lol

    I love to fondle a new signed limited edition, but I'm more of a reader than collector. No offense to the authors, but I'll be listing my nonfiction Stephen King book on eBay "new & unread" soon after it arrives. I expect the other three to follow soon after I (gently) read them.

    Not enough books . . . . . just too little time.

    Yes, but, in that dark closet, it gives me an excuse to grope--I can't see. Besides, it's A GRAB bag, right? That's what you're supposed to do!
