Should I Do This?

In February I saw my old editor at a writers' retreat. She told me I ought to speak with my publisher about attending a conference. She mentioned ALA, which just happens to be holding its conference now.

This sounds awful, but my big interest in conferences (as I've said before in relation to Book Expo America) is collecting free books. Fuse #8 and Roger Sutton are both at ALA right now, and they seem to be doing a lot of eating.

It's not that I'm not interested in eating, but I'm afraid that it would be time I could be using to collect free books. Or fondle them in my hotel room. Or organize and pack them for the trip home.

Fear not. During the day I collected book after book. The eating took place mostly at night. And even then, the publisher parties consisted of tables laden with free ARCs alongside more strawberries than a human body could consume.

Later my friends told me that if I want to play the game better I should go to earn the kal geons, so I was very quickly risen to thirty levels, and then I started to play the game alone.I spend a lot of kal gold to treat myself in this game. However she was also very sad when I was hurt, she was sorry about this to me and I did not complain her at last. I was very happy and we went to earn the kal online geons to equip us to become strong. Today I play the game again and I can get a lot of kal online gold for her, I take her to upgrade and then add her experience. I have a lot of kalonline Geons and I want to give her in the game.
