And, of course, the swag: 


  1. Oh my.....Look at all of the pretty, pretty books! *melts into a puddle of jealous envy*

    Don't get me wrong, I'm happy for you! Just jealous that I couldn't go with you to pet all the pretties and bring some of them home with me.

    1. Hey, I was still coming down with book envy. I think, we as readers and book collectors cannot help that. I book is, after all, never as shiny as when it is new.
      I found myself looking to see what people were holding, reading and what they had in their bags the entire time, presumably to see what I might have missed, but yeah. I was still feeling a little green.
      I hope you will be recovered enough when BEA comes back to NYC. You have at least 2 years to recover.

  2. Good grief that lot will take some getting through. All of those books and then that swag I'm feeling quite jealous though at the same time glad they aren't mine as I wouldn't know where to begin reading.

    1. I can say that a good number of the books were picked up for people. Well, that is not entirely accurate, Maybe a 1/4 of the titles? Maybe a little more?
      I have a bad habit, obsession really. I must acquire books. I don't always get around to reading them immediately, but it is the having.
      Still, I have books I need to clear out. That is going to be my summer project.

  3. You got so many great books! I don't know how you managed to carry those all around. I can't wait for Illuminae to come out. The hardcover arc is absolutely beautiful.

    1. I brought a very large suitcase with me and I made drops during the day. I think Wed and Thurs I made two drops. Fri was one drop. Sat I had a small suitcase on the floor with me and Sunday I had three tote bags.
      The problem isn't loading up the suitcase. You'd think it would make it easier. The problem is wheeling that great lug of a suitcase with all those books from the Javits Center to the ferry. It was a killer!
      I'll miss it next year. There is no way I can afford to go to Chicago.
