Stacking the Shelves

Last week I was at BEA, my first time going to that section of it.  Previous years I went to the Advanced Readers Day and BookCon.  It was amazing, I got to meet so many cool people and had some great conversations about all sorts of bookish/geeky things.  Not to mention being able to meet some of my favorite authors!  And I think Scott Westerfeld is somewhat clairvoyant, he offered me condolences before the Rangers lost in game 7 - I was wearing my Rangers tee when I met him.

The best part of BEA though was all the books I got! So many, I don't know how I'm going to read them all...New goal for me - read all BEA books before June 1, 2016.  I already finished one, and a couple others are duplicates of stuff I already read, so if I stop having a life I may actually be able to do this!
