NYC Day 3
A super quick update this morning. Yesterday was the first day of the BEA exhibit floor, and the first day that I took in any of the events. The floor opened at 9am, and can I just say wow. Completely overwhelming! There were crushes of people everywhere, pushing and shoving, yelling, and people just pushing books at you constantly. Very tiring. But also a great time!
I was really excited to get (among others):
- Beautiful Darkness by Kami Garcia and Margaret Stohl
- Torment by Lauren Kate
- The Passage by Justin Cronin
- Bamboo People by Mitali Perkins
- BookLust To Go by Nancy Pearl
- And way too many others to list or even remember.
I had also brought along my personal copies of Radiant Shadows by Melissa Marr and Shadow Bound by Richelle Mead to get signed, so that was fun. It was a little bit shocked though when Melissa Marr said she knew my blog. Eecks, need to go verify the review I wrote of Radiant Shadows
Besides the books, and the bloggers and authors who I met, the panels were also quite interesting. I’m looking forward to more of them today.
Yesterday evening was the HarperCollins Book Blogger Appreciation Event which was a really great time. A lot of mingling with other bloggers, employees, and authors. It was great to put more faces to names. It was especially exciting to meet my twin, The Girl From the Ghetto!
Today, more of the same! And I promise I’ll try to remember to take more pictures today.
