Off to Book Expo America & More

Ok, I haven't talked much about Book Expo America yet, but here it is. The official post.

Anna from Diary of an Eccentric and I will be headed up to NYC and can't wait to meet all of the book/lit bloggers who will be in attendance, not to mention some of our favorite publishers and publishers we haven't even made contact with yet.
I'm taking this trusty Fodor's New York City 2009 guide with me, and trust me there will be tabs galore in it of sights to see and things to do, though in about 2 days, who can get through the entire city and all its sights? Not me. It's a repeat trip in the future that will get it done, but I'm hopeful that I can get some sights in.

We've already registered to the BEAtweetup 2009, and hope to see many of you there. I wish everyone were able to come, but rest assured we will be thinking of you.

I plan to bring the SLR and shoot photos as much as possible, hopefully this will make everyone feel like you were there with us.

In other developments, I've cracked and joined Twitter. Have you joined up already? I may have not found you, but if you want to find me, here's the handle @SavvyVerseWit

Oh yeah, we've got a modern throwback to the CB radio. . . "handles" over at Twitter.

Oh my gosh, BEA was so much fun. Meeting you and Anna was great. You two are hilarious - you reminded me of an old married couple. It's fantastic that you've remained such close friends all these years.

Bermudaonion: I had a great time at BEA even if we walked forever and lugged tons of books. I had fun meeting you and everyone else I saw. Its too bad I missed the meetups with the other bloggers.
