Tomorrow, I am going to our local FOL sale's first day of four straight days. I would like to know paranormal authors that are popular and are on most WLs'. Plus, if there are 2 books that are on your WL that you would like me to look for, I will. I enjoy looking for books that others would like.. Just let me know. I will contact you 'only' if I find your books to see if you would like me to post them to your WL.

I think we're going to the same sale! The CMPL, right?  Only I'm going Thursday morning, as I am not a FOL member...I'm keeping my eyes peeled for all of J.R. Ward's Black Dagger series...I'm tempted to pay the $15 to get in the door tomorrow night, though!

Yes, Julianne! I am so excited  about it that I am going to pay the $15 tomorrow night to become a FOL member. How 'bout that finding someone who's going there, too! Cool! Last year my son and I were driving down the street and just happened to notice the sale, went in and found a lot of books. I think I had one box full and a couple of bags. Great prices,too. If it's too crowded tomorrow night, I will return on Thursday. It starts at noon then.

I'll bet you know people who can't understand why you're so excited, right?  Well, I'll be excited for you!!  Good luck at the sale...  :P

May you find many WL books!   (Isn't it nice to be surrounded by others who can really appreciate a good book sale??)

Lol That's awesome! I may just go tomorrow night then, too...the last time I showed up about 11:30 am on Thursday and there was a line through the library like it was Cedar Point! It was super crowded, so i'm thinking Wednesday night might not be as bad bc people might not want to pay the extra $15...my advice would be to wear short sleeves bc it got super hot in there last time with all of those frantic people! And bring a big, sturdy bag. :) If I go tomorrow, I'll shout "Connie" and see if anyone turns around! lol

Julianne, thanks for the advice! I will keep listening for you to shout out "Connie". That is of course, unless you are right behind me! lol  You might notice me bringing those B&N bags, because they told me that they hold 150 pounds of books!

I am so jealous of you two!! I live for the big FOL sale that we help at in August. I shop from the start of the presale all the way through to the end of the bag sale :)

  • Charlaine Harris
  • JR Ward
  • Patricia Briggs
  • CE Murphy
  • Kelly Armstrong (her's go in and out, but usually have a few wishers on each book)
  • Jim Butcher
  • Jenna Black
  • Richelle Mead
  • Laura Anne Gilman
  • Jeri Smith-Ready
  • Larissa Ione
  • Dakota Cassidy
  • Rachel Caine
  • Carrie Vaughn
  • Gena Showalter (stick to paranormal genre)
  • Caitlin Kittredge
  • Karen Chance
  • Jeaniene Frost
  • Ilona Andrews
  • Nalini Singh (stick to paranormal, not the series romances)
  • Karen Marie Moning (paranormal, NOT the highlander books those are heavily posted)
  • Meljean Brook
  • G.A. Aiken
  • P.C. Cast

Wow. I didn't think I'd find that many just by browsing through my lists.

Have fun shopping!
