BEA Pictures

Since I still do not have working internet (this post is being done from the library), this will not have too much substance to it, but here are some of my pics from BEA.

This is the Javits Center where the conference was held.  This picture is of the people in line behind us to get into the exhibits.

Here is Abby with Super Chicken Nugget Boy, who I believe has a book coming out soon.  As a vegetarian, I should find this offensive, but he is just so darn cute!  There were several characters like this walking around BEA including a book, some pirates, and several weird puppets that we learned to avoid.

This picture is kinda dark, so you might not be able to tell, but it is Tony Hawk.  If I had paid more attention to my program and realized he was there, I would have gotten in line for his book.  But by the time I realized he was there, the line was so long I couldn’t even find the end.  But I was brave enough to push past the paparazzi and news cameras to take my own pic.  I think it is kind of funny that he is sitting in front of a book called The Amish Way.

Here is a picture of me with Diary of a Wimpy Kid author Jeff Kinney.  I actually did wait in line for his book and got his autograph.  It was a very well managed line and even though it was super long, I only waited about 15 minutes.  They even had someone standing there with the sole job of taking pictures for you.  If you notice, my forehead is glistening with sweat.  That is because BEA is HARD WORK!  You can’t tell from the picture, but there is a huge bag filled with probably 20 books at my feet that practically broke my shoulder.  I felt a little bad standing so close to Mr. Kinney when I was all sweaty and gross.

Here is the giant typewriter at the Abrams booth that Jeff Kinney was sitting next too.  Did I mention how awesome Abrams was??

This is my spot in line for the Author Breakfast on Thursday morning.  I don’t know if you can tell how far ahead the line goes, but trust me, it went on FOREVER.

Here is the man himself, Jon Stewart.  He was funny, charming, and just a little bit irritable, which was pitch perfect.

    Okay, so I have without a computer at home for like three weeks now–I know… HORRIBLENESS–and it was driving me nuts because I was all “I NEED TO CHECK THE BLOG TO SEE HOW BEA WENT FOR JEN AND ABBY!” and I only have like a fifteen minute break at work which I had to cram all my email and online banking into but FINALLY I am caught up.

    I am sooo bummed that New York was a bummer. But yea! for two boxes of books! Did you happen to pick up Maryrose Wood’s Poison Diaries?! hee hee, I saw on her blog that she was giving them out a booth 🙂 I can’t wait to hear more more more!

    I also want to hear more about why you didn’t like New York City–I always find why people don’t like a place more fascinating than they like it…

    Yea, it’s so good to hear from you Amber!! I think I didn’t like New York because it felt so claustrophobic. It was scary to walk down the sidewalks and even scarier to ride in the cabs. It was also very dirty. It just felt like the whole city was “mean.” Does that make any sense at all? I don’t know what it is because I love London, which is also a big city. New York City just has a totally different feel to it that rubbed me the wrong way.
