BEA2013: Day One

BEA was insane today. Big crowds, lots of long autographing lines… I ended up with a good haul, however:

bookdayone (Medium)The entire top row and third, fourth, and fifth book in the second row were signed!

bookstackdayone (Medium)Nice stack of books.

021 (Medium)Highlight of the day: Meeting Lemony Snicket! He was so funny!

And tomorrow is another day! I looked over my schedule and made some adjustments. I now know that it is impossible to see/do everything. Not unless you clone yourself. So the theme of tomorrow (and today, once I realized I couldn’t do everything due to the fact that I was spending nearly 45 mins on autographing lines!) is to do the stuff I really, really want to do. And get to the events early, because boy do those lines build up fast!

  1. You got Cherry Money Baby! That’s all everyone is talking about on Twitter! I can’t wait for Saturday!!! I’m even more excited now!!! Will you be there on Saturday too? We have to meet up!

    • Ooh, now I’m excited to read it! I have to admit I have never heard of it before. That’s one of the best things about BEA; finding great new reads by accident!

      If Saturday is anything like it was last year when I went as a Power Reader, you will get SO MANY BOOKS (I seriously got nearly 30 books!). So be very excited! I sent you an email about meeting up; I hope we can!

    • I’ve heard of *most* of them. Sometimes there’s a book drop and a big crowd and you just grab and look at it later. But for anything signed, I wanted them in advance (although on the second day I got a couple of signed books just by being near the right booth at the right time!).
