I was so very lucky to be able to attend BEA (Book Expo America) this year in New York city. I had such an amazing time! Look for multiple posts on the blog in the near future about all the events and sight-seeing that was done. It was overwhelming, but in an awesome way!
Most of the books I received over the 4 days of BEA extravaganza are currently on their way to my office via FedEx. I don't think my FedEx guy will still my friend after he has to deliver a 70 pound box of books to my desk...and I had no idea how I will get it home from there...but we will cross that bridge when we come to it!
These are the boxes of books that Nicole, Caitlyn and myself shipped...can you guess which one is mine? (Hint: I shipped the most amount of books back home...)
Here are a few shots of books as I went along the way...
Books from the BEA Blogger Convention portion and Day One at BEA.
Received from the wonderful Scholastic YA event.
Books in the goodie bag from the BEA Blogger Convention portion. As well as a cool chalkboard Kobo mug and a clip on book light.
Here are the small portion of books that made it back with me in my luggage. Most of them were all picked up the final day of BEA after already shipping the 70 pound box of doom the night before.
And one of the best things of all?
Signed chapter samplers of James Dashner's prequel, The Kill Order, to The Maze Runner series. The boy and I are both super excited about this book (which comes out in August). I was super lucky to have James sign a copy for each the boy and I (so he could feel special in having his own copy to cherish). Can't wait to devour this!
I guess I better get reading!
What goodies did you receive this week?
