Wow, BEA sounds so great!

Melanie said...

Wow! Where are you going to start?

Blodeuedd said...

Great week for you :D
Enjoy all of those

Kristi said...

There isn't much better than a big stack of new books! Great haul this week. Enjoy your reading!

Mary said...

What an amazing list of books. Happy reading!

Ti said...

Wow!! That's an impressive stack. You probably had to pack an extra bag just to take them home.

bermudaonion said...

That's too funny! I think the only book we got in common at BEA was the Luis Urrea audio book. Enjoy your new treasures!

LisaMM said...

Wow you must have had a major back ache from lugging them all around at BEA!!

Serena said...

You guys are great for stopping by to check out these books...you cannot believe how much fun it was to see the publishers, etc. Carrying the books around was not too bad, but imagine how many I would have had if I went to all four days!

Sandy Nawrot said...

Yowza. Bet you've got a few more muscles after that haul. I can't wait to hear about BEA!

Serena said...

I think Anna and I both have muscles because over the course of a couple days and these books, plus hers, we both carried that one bag around the exhibition hall and NYC for hours on end. I can tell you that my shoulders are sore

avisannschild said...

Whoo-hoo, what a mega pile! I'm definitely planning to go to BEA next year! Enjoy your books!

Serena said...

Avis: It would be great to see you if you plan on going in 2010.

michaelsean said...

Read The Crying Tree first. It is an amazing book. One of a few great reads I have had thus far this year!

Serena said...

Michael: Thanks for the heads up.

avisannschild said...

Thanks, Serena, I'd love to meet you (and Anna) too!

Red lady-Bonnie said...

What a great stack of books! The Diary of Charlotte Bronte and the Anne Frank book caught my eye! Can't wait to hear more about your adventures at BEA w/Anna! I would love to attend next year, seriously considering it.

Kristen said...

I'm so jealous of your haul that I can hardly see through the green haze across my eyes!!! Enjoy them all. :-)

Wrighty said...

I'm so very jealous! What great books! It must have been so much fun. Someday I'm going to check it out for myself. Can't wait to hear what you think of everything. Enjoy!

bkclubcare said...

Serena! That is a startling amt of books. AND you got got to go to BEA - I didn't realize YOU were there, too?! I swear almost all the bloggers I follow were in NY last weekend!

Serena said...

Care: I met a bunch of the bloggers face to face, but I also didn't run into a bunch because of the times I came in and left. They had some pre-arranged meet-up times, but Anna and I were late comers on Friday. We did hang out a bit with some of them, but more on that later.

Yvonne said...

What a great collection of books you received! Enjoy them!

Dar said...

Wowser girl! That sure is a load of books. Enjoy!

I'm so excited about the Anne Frank book! I may (finally) have a book for the WWII challenge!

Ladytink_534 said...

Yowza! I hope you enjoy everything!
