NYC Wednesday Recap - part 1

It was an early morning for me - up at 6:30am to get author signing tickets - and I STILL missed one for Rick Riordan. Hung around and chatted until 9am when the exhibit hall opened then went directly to the line for Ally Condie's new book CROSSED.  Both Amanda @ Zen Leaf and I want to read this one but I could only get one copy so I'll read it then mail it to her.

For the next few hours I browsed the booths in search of books
... without a ton of success. It seems like there are fewer books I'm really interested in this year. I did pick up a few for Amanda though - Tayari Jones' SILVER SPARROW and Scott Westerfeld's GOLIATH.

More happened on Wednesday but I have to go to lunch now so I'll leave you with a few pictures.

All I can say again is thank you so much for those books Heather! Between you and Kim (who found Falling Together and the sample chapter of Habibi they handed out), you guys are making me feel so much better about this horrible situation. :)

That's cool that you picked up books for Amanda! I can't wait to read both Crossed and Goliath. :)
