I’m Going to BEA!!!

I am so excited right now that I can barely contain myself.  In less than 24 hours, I will be in New York City for the Book Expo of America!!  I’ve never been to New York before, so that alone is exciting, but I can’t wait to get my hands on all kinds of free books!!!

I told Abby (the) Librarian (my traveling partner) that I was going to be a human tornado, sucking up every book within range of my flailing arms.  I hope that I can contain myself enough to not be a rude human tornado.

One of the things I am most looking forward to is the Author’s Breakfast on Thursday morning.  I am going to get to eat breakfast with Jon Stewart!!!!  Well, Jon Stewart and hundreds of other people probably.  I will try to take pictures if they are allowed (and even if they’re not tee hee).  He is the person I am most looking forward to seeing.  Also, I would like to get a glimpse of Mo Williams and Adam Rex since they are two of the hot men of children’s literature (also, I happen to like their books).

There are a few titles that I am going to be truly crushed if I don’t get my hands on them, but I am not going to list them here.  I feel like that would jinx it somehow.  But we all know from the Catching Fire incident last year at ALA that there is nothing that will stop me from getting a book I want!  (Unfortunately, we already know that Mockingjay will not be given out, so I am not counting that as one of my titles.)  Wish me luck as I head off into the wild forests of ARCs!  Hopefully I will bring back some good stuff to keep me busy this summer.

    Do you think he’ll talk about how awesome BEA is on his show? I’m going to watch more than I normally do to find out. I can see it now…. after it’s over, he’ll have a whole segment on crazy librarians who use their awesome reference skills to stalk celebrities and you’ll be evil excited laughing in the video. lol
