I saw Lenore, Korianne, Sharon, Mitali and a whole bunch of other people from TAC again! I also meet Steph (a.k.a Reviewer X!!) and some other great bloggers, not to mention even more authors!!! :D
(Maureen Johnson signing Suite Scarlett)
The Javits Center is HUGE and it was packed with so many exhibits and people! Some of the lines for signings just got crazy; the line for Sarah Dessen's signing of Along for the Ride was so long it snaked around a column! Kate DiCamillo also had incredibly long lines; I had to wait 20 minutes to get a signed copy of The Tale of Despereaux and that line just shot across the exhibition floor! Ms. DiCamillo's hand must have been really sore after BEA--she actually had several signings, and 2 of them were back-to-back on Saturday morning!
I did manage to snag a copy of Catching Fire by Suzanne Collins (though I didn't make it to her signing, but still, I can't complain!) so look for a review of that soon! :D I'm also really excited about Shiver, Along for the Ride, Another Faust, and well...a whole bunch of these books!! All these wonderful books will keep my busy for a while, and now that the majority of my crazy exams are over, hopefully I'll be able to get more reviews & posts up!
Here are the books I got from BEA + a swim cap for Swim the Fly by Don Calame, which is pretty cool (+ fits in nicely with the book!) and something I can make use of since I was a varsity swimmer :)
