As I hear everyone discuss how they are frantically packing for BEA and I watch people start to arrive in New York City, my excitement about this week grows. I don’t leave until Wednesday so I am not really frantically doing anything (except incessantly talking about the trip as I have been told by my husband). I’m more of a throw-clothes-in-the-suitcase-10-minutes-before-leaving -for-the-airport kind of girl, but I’m enjoying everyone else’s franticness.
The list of things I’m excited for:
- I am thrilled to be able to finally “meet” all the wonderful bloggers I feel like I already know so well. This is what I’m most looking forward to.
- This is my first real trip to New York City. So much to do – I’m thankfully lucky enough to have a great tour guide and hostess.
- The abundance of books I plan on taking (or shipping) home with me.
- The Lost finale – did I really just throw that in there? Yep.
And because this IS a Sunday Salon post, here is a little reading update:
Currently Listening to:
On Deck (and not ashamed to say so):
I LOVE The Vampire Diaries! 🙂 And I hope you enjoy Hex Hall as much as I did. 🙂
I’m looking forward to your review of “We Have Always Lived in the Castle”.
Also, I can imagine your excitement rising for this week. I hope you have a great stay and that you get to meet everyone you want to & see some of New York.
Hope you have a wonderful time at the BEA! Hope you get sometime to go around in New York and also check out the wonderful Strand bookstore. Also, do say ‘Hi’ to Emily 🙂
Lucky you, I must be content to merely watch the goings-on from afar.
Hope you have a great time at the BEA! 😀
