Happy Saturday Readers, Bloggers, and Awesome people! 

Wow, guys! BEA was AWESOME!

Link me up to your piles! Happy Reading!


  1. I'm so jealous that you were able to go to BEA!! So excited for you!! Great haul from BEA!!!!!!

    1. Thank you! You should attend next year it was a blast, a pain to organize all the things, room/ train/ goodies... but so worth it!

  2. BEA was awesome this year! This was my first year so I underestimated how quickly the weight of the books add up. Lol, rookie mistake. How did yo get all your books home?

    1. Yea, I was not expecting so many things I wanted to grab but the cover were all so good! The stuff in the first pic I shipped home via Fed Ex, kinda pricey but worth it. the second ones I carried home on the train :)

  3. It's so hard to resist some of them, isn't it? At ALAMW I was being careful and still brought home 200 books. I was getting books for the school library so I got children and middle grade books to share with them as well, but geez, I had no idea I was getting so many at the time! But they all sound SO GOOD! It looks like you got some great ones anyway!
