Road Trip Wednesday- The One That Got Away
This Week's YA Highway Road Trip Wednesday Topic:
What book is your 'one that got away?' (What book have you always been dying to read but still haven't yet?)
Jane Austen and Sci-Fi? Together? I'm so there...with bells and whistles and cymbals on.
I head for the end of the line. Wait thirty minutes. With only ten minutes left and no word from officials, I'm hopeful they can keep the signing going after the appointed hour. Usually, if they have to cut a line off they would have done it by then.
Five more minutes. Finally, someone comes out to inform us that there are only a few more books left and the rest of us will have to leave empty handed.
This one never did come out in an audio version, though I've checked often. I have a feeling that if I'd gotten a copy that day it would have been one of those few and far between books I actually take the time to read instead of listen to.
What about you? Any potentially favorite book you've put off reading? Any near misses at Book Expo or other conference?
