Book Expo America and Book Blogger Convention
I'm packing to go to New York City for my annual trip to Book Expo America (BEA) -- leaving tomorrow. I discuss with publishers and authors their reading group picks for the new year. It is plenty of work but great fun -- seeing old friends and meeting new. Throughout the summer, I will let you know some of the interesting gems I picked up.
This year, there is something new and I'm really thrilled about it. Some of the many great book bloggers have organized a Book Blogger Convention the day after BEA. These bloggers are the best around and come from all over the nation expressing their joy of reading. I'm excited to meet them and learn from them.
So, next week will be a week of literature and litizens! Lots of bossip going on. (book gossip). What fun.
