updates on University Book Store celebration!

Happy New Year Again!

Here is a quick update about how University Book Store in Seattle will be celebrating its 110th anniversary.

The event is on January 10, its birthday and this year the 110th Anniversary of what started as a student co op to buy text books.

In addition to a all-day party there with cookies and cider, there is a celebratory booklet composed of very short stories. Each story is exactly 110 words long. I actually have two little stories in the booklet, one by Robin Hobb and one by Megan Lindholm!

To get a booklet, all you have to do is buy a book by one of the contributing authors. Then the booklet is free.

But what if you don’t live in Seattle? I asked Stesha that, and here is her response:

Hi Robin/Megan ( 🙂 )–
yes, folks who purchase any of your titles through our website will be eligible to receive 110/110. In order to help the folks in mail order, your fan should type “happy110” in the promotional code box. That will flag the purchase as one that receives the special book 🙂

So there is your not-so-secret password to getting a copy of the booklet. Hot tip for the day: Greg Bear is also a contributor. So even if you have more Hobb books than you can possibly use, you can expand into some truly amazing SF with any book by Greg!

For more information on the celebration, visit the University Book Store website page at http://www.bookstore.washington.edu/trade.taf?dept=attribute&category=events&par=trade&ttl=events&page=2

  1. Happy new year, Robin! 🙂

    **spoiler alert for anyone else reading**

    Well, I feel like such a fan-girl, maybe because I am. 😉 But I wanted to tell you how much I enjoy your books. Especially of Fitz, the Fool and Nighteyes. 🙂 I have read them so many times and cry each time over when Nighteyes dies and over the Fool and Fitz and the poem about dancing at the end of the last book. I enjoy reading, but I don’t recall ever being so attached to characters in a book. Thank you for that experience. 🙂

  2. Thank you so much!

    I get very attached to my characters when I’m writing them, so it’s wonderful to know that you love them as much as I do!
