Ok, so I hadn’t blogged a whole lot about this before because
a) I’ve been really, really stressed out lately
b) I know most of you guys reading this don’t live out here in sunny SoCal
but today from 4 to 6 pm was the 4th GoodReads book swap, held at Vroman’s Bookstore in Pasadena.
Jason and I headed down there to meet up with Jane and Alfonso (Dale came too!), load up on books, and chat up the GoodReads folks. Yep, I got to meet Elizabeth, Otis, and Jessica from the good ol’ GR team. I feel like I met movie stars today–with less fainting and awkward silences, phew. They were very friendly and I wish I could remember to bring my darned camera to things like this. (It’s ok, Otis had a camera.) They’re just over there in Santa Monica so I’m sure I’ll run into them at a future event.
Here’s what we scored:

Great fun was had by all, and I hope someone is enjoying my copy of Jonathan Tropper’s This is Where I Leave You. I thought it would be good book karma to swap a book I loved and totally wanted to keep. (But just one, hehe.)
Anonymous swappers, thank you for your fine taste in books.
As soon as I find out where the next one is, I’ll let you know. I do hope they have another one there–it was an excellent location!
