Something I never mentioned on the blog was that I went to BEA. Yes, exciting! I hopped a train to NYC and spent one day in the exhibition hall, wandering the aisles and feeling…overwhelmed. One thing I learned about my single day at BEA: you must have a plan. I didn’t. I thought there was nothing but pure publishing craziness! People were handing out books like free community newspapers. And because I have a book problem, I was taking them. No matter what. No matter that I don’t read middle grade YA or James Patterson; no matter that, while I love Chris Colfer on Glee, I was not too interested in reading his book. I thought to myself, well, here is a chance to read something a little different. I’ll read these and do mini-reviews on the blog. I feel so guilty. These ARCs have been sitting on my shelves since May and I know I will never read them, no matter what my good intentions were at the time. And it’s not a question of these books being good or bad it’s just with the little reading time I have, I know I won’t get to them. Lesson learned. They deserve good homes with good bloggers and readers who love Colfer, Patterson and the Princess Academy.
