    I was beginning to wonder why we haven't heard about a new book yet . . .

    My shelf is full - does that mean I won't be able to buy it?

    No sir, that means you need to build or buy new shelves. Depending on other circumstances you may also need to remodel or purchase a new house. Good news is you have a year to take care of that.

    I'll spare you the long story of the house I live in, but I just moved (back) here last August. Three bedrooms. And I promised my girlfriend that she could have one of the bedrooms as her craft room. The master is obviously a bedroom. Of the other two, one is very small. She expected the small one. I gave her the larger one and then put in wall to wall shelves and call the small room the library.

    In other words - no room. Unless I take the larger room back. And if I do that, there won't nearly be enough room in my two man tent that'll be pitched in the backyard ...

    Or like you said - I'm going to need a new/bigger house. Damnit.

    This is not something I've followed closely, but I think I heard that it is nonfiction and concerns a women's prison. Not sure if this is accurate.

    Last time I saw King was in Seattle for Lisey's Story. Hopefully I will be able to obtain tickets for the Portland appearance.

    I'm going to try for Portland as well. I'm guessing it's Powells, but I do wonder if it'll be at a larger venue to handle the demand.

    I saw him in Seattle for BAG OF BONES. As far as I knew, that was the last time he toured here; guess I missed the LISEY'S STORY tour/stop.

    The Lisey's Story appearance in Seattle was at Benaroya Hall which seats 2,500. We had tickets that allowed us to sit in the first four rows and we managed to get first row center.

    Powell's often hosts larger events at the Baghdad theater in Southest Portland. Baghdad has a capacity of about 700. It would not surprise me if this event was at one of the larger venues like the Arlene Schnitzer concert hall.

    Hope I can get tickets and also hope for a premium ticket for better seating!

    Btw, r.e. SLEEPING BEAUTIES, the book: I caved. I tried to hold out on it, passing on both the signed/limited and the Gift edition from CD when initially offered (was early enough that I had the opportunity for either), but time has worn me down…just put in my reservation for a Gift edition. Co-authored works make me skeptical, given my general experience with them, but I'm going to give it a shot.

    I was there too. It was on the exact same day as his upcoming Chicago appearance: September 29. I know because I still have the tickets to the event in my signed copies of Bag of Bones.

    I'm going to try to get Portland tickets, so maybe I'll see a few of you down that way.

    I'm starting to be worn down as well. I too passed on both editions, but now I'm wondering if I shouldn't pick up a gift edition. Right now, I'm contemplating a pretty sizeable shift in my collecting goals, so that's holding me off as well.
