Countdown to BEA 2010

This time next week I’ll be on a train en route to NY for Book Expo America 2010.  I’m beyond thrilled to say the least.  I attended last year and by far the best thing I got out of that trip was meeting up with other book bloggers and publicists I’ve worked with in the past.

This year I know it will be no different.  I have meetings set up with my favorite publishers.  I have a list of books from my son, the Formerly Reluctant Reader, to obtain for him to cover for his feature. I just hope I have enough time to do at least half of the things I’ve scheduled.

Are you going to BEA and want to get together? Send me an email at jennsbookshelfATgmailDOTcom or leave a comment here.  I’ll be in NY next Tuesday afternoon through Saturday early afternoon. Dawn from She Is Too Fond of Books  is in the process of creating a database of contact information for those bloggers headed to BEA.  Interested in being part of this database? Sign up now!

For those that follow this blog and will not be in NY, I do have a few posts scheduled for next week so you don’t feel completely neglected :).  I will have a sticky post for all those who come across my blog after meeting me at BEA, but there will be other content as well.

If you aren’t going to BEA, you still have a chance to participate. Several bloggers have set up a blog for Armchair BEA, where they will be “announcing daily blogging themes (inspired by Book Expo America (BEA) conference sessions), giveaways hosted by participants, sign-ups for the Book Blogger Convention (BBC) agenda-topic roundtables we’ll be conducting, and more.”

So head over and sign up!

Teaser Tuesday: Dismantled by Jennifer McMahon

Teaser Tuesdays is a weekly bookish meme, hosted by MizB of Should Be Reading. Anyone can play along!

Just do the following:

  • Grab your current read
  • Open to a random page
  • Share two (2) “teaser” sentences from somewhere on that page
  • BE CAREFUL NOT TO INCLUDE SPOILERS! (make sure that what you share doesn’t give too much away! You don’t want to ruin the book for others!)
  • Share the title & author, too, so that other TT participants can add the book to their TBR Lists if they like your teasers!


My teaser this week comes from Dismantled: A Novel by Jennifer McMahon:

We will change the world by taking it apart, dismantling it piece by piece.  Break it down.  Tear it up.  Only then can we be truly free. (pg. 127)

What is your teaser this week?
