It's a big secret but I have to tell someone so, I figure The Internet is the best place to unload my secret. I have a highly coveted, greatly demanded, spectacularly anticipated, and incredibly exciting pass to the Bob's Hogs and Weiner Pigs Vendor Expo that is coming to San Diego next Sunday! This involves meeting each and every vendor that services Bob's Hogs and Weiner Pigs in order to see what is new in the world of Hogs and Weiner Pigs.

Did I mention that the Bob's Hogs and Weiner Pigs Vendor Expo gives away tons of free schlock? And not your average, run-of-the-mill lollipops and plastic toys. These are fantabulous gally copies of EVERYTHING DUE TO BE PUBLISHED IN THE NEXT FEW MONTHS.

Yes, everything.

If you're a book whore like me (and many of my close associates), you'd be freaking out too.

My boss mentioned to me that despite the urge which comes over everyone attending this event to run down the aisles snatching freebies from every booth, I must stop and speak with everyone there. Apparently, in the past, the vendors have noticed that we, the Bob's Hogs and Weiner Pigs representatives, tend to be a little, um, well, grabby and also a bit greedy when it comes to free stuff.

I'm practicing getting out, "HiI'mEnsiehowareyoutodaygreatisthisnewwhendoesitcomeoutthanksbye!" in under 1 second.

I am sooo jealous. You don't get HP6 though... or do you ;)? Are you going to have giveaways to your faithful readers? *insert Puss-In-Boots face here*

No, they don't do gally copies of HP6. I have a friend that has a gally of the very first HP book, and she had it signed when JK Rowling was in the US. It's quite the collector's item. I believe she may even have the first two or three gallies signed. She works with author signings and has all sorts of publisher/author inroads. I may give a few things away, depending on what I find...anything you have in mind (genres, authors)?

Maybe. I like new lit, classic lit, no chick lit, some sff, etc. Maybe we could trade or something ;) I'm always up for hogs and weiner pigs!

Oh, how cool. Free books. That's like free crack, but good for you. Hope you got some good stuff.
