Been doing a lot of reading lately. Considering between my book store run and Readercon I have multiple stacks of books in my to read pile. Plus I wanted to pull out a couple of books that have sadly gone out of print, but might be reissued in a different format. Kind of get myself back into that world while I wait for the new stuff.
Between the reading, Warehouse 13 - The coolest show your not watching, and the Red Sox on a trip to the west coast well not much is getting done. Some one remind me I need to go grocery shopping soon.
I do have a series of questions I have been wondering about.
-- I have become friends with some wonderful amazing writers thank to science fiction conventions, and my general chattiness. Having Byron around helps a lot. If you are a fan of a writer it is excepted that you will want to get them to sign their books for you. But, if you become a friend is it still okay to ask them to autograph your book?
-- If you become a friend first, it is almost mandatory that you purchase their books, but do you also ASK for an autograph? Do you purchase the book from the writer? Or from a book store to encourage the publisher and book store to increase the stock?
--Do you take books out of your own collection and ask for an autograph, or do you purchase a new book?
