Help me, flist: you're my only hope!  
The ARCs of Megan Whalen Turner's A Conspiracy of Kings have hit the streets. I'm throwing pride to the wind and begging: if any of you so connected can procure a copy for me, I promise to do something very nice for you in return.

I'll bake you cookies. I'll cook dinner. Want a lesson in basic swordplay? Done. A free kickboxing class? No problem. A one-eyed kitty of adorableness? Well, I can give you face time with her.

Is it a teen book? OR ScFi? I can check with the buyers to see if there are any ARCs around.

It's a teen book. Many thanks in advance, regardless of the outcome!

I'll ask, though I know Jim the SciFi buyer, better than Ben. Hoping for the best, though. Any other books you want? ;) Send me a list.

You are my favorite. Just sayin'.

OH! I read The Maze Runner: seriously twisted and dark and brilliant. At least one of my nieces or nephews will be getting that for Christmas. Which reminds me... I need to make THAT list for you, and I will definitely take full advantage of your generosity and make my ARC wish list. And please please please tell me if I'm overstepping, or asking too much, 'cause I do get a bit enthusiastic when it comes to books. A sharp rap on the nose and a stern 'NO!' will set me to rights.

Kel. KEL. Duuuuude. I hate to impose, but i'd probably do a lot more than be slightly rude/foward in asking if it meant I got to read A Conspiracy of Kings any time soon so, if you get a copy and once you've read it half a dozen times, would you be willing to lend it to me? 'Cause I'll totally send it back if you wanted. Or, if you prefer, further share the love and send it to someone else who I'm sure would be delighted to read it early. In exchange i'd be willing to...er...I don't know what I could do from the other side of the country. But think of something and i'd almost certainly be willing. Okay, stopping with the babble now.

My dear, I would gladly lend it to you. I'd probably want it back, but that's all moot until I get my wee grasping hands on a copy. *hopes!*

They are rather distracting, aren't they.
