Post BEA 2010!

I know I’m WAY behind on posting this so please accept my apologies!

Here’s a brief explanation of my visit to BEA in NYC!

Basically I walked the booths and stuck to my schedule of events.

I met up with a good friend of mine, Lacey, and her friend Valerie. A great big thank you to them both because with out them I would have missed out on a few of these books. The author signing area was a mad house and a few of the signings took forever and I couldn’t be in two places at once so thank you ladies!

Here’s a Goodreads widget of the books I grabbed.

And here are a few pictures of the pile!


Stacked up!


What a helpful kitty. Only NOT!


There were a few books I didn’t get my hands on, again with the can’t be in two places at once issue, such as Beautiful Darkness and Unraveled by Gena Showalter, who is such a super sweetie because she saved me one and shipped it to me herself! How cool is she? I can’t wait to read it because I just LOVED Intertwined.

So, overall it was a great day. I was very picky with the books I grabbed. I think I only got 3 books I didn’t intend to get.

And some of the booths were madhouses! Take the Harlequin Teen signing for example. I’m in this crowd, can you find me!?

I also meet quite a few bloggers! So many I can’t even shout them out here. Here’s a picture I stole from Bloody Bookaholic’s blog.
