うさ-p: It got all pruny in the brain water.
First time at the BookExpo today. Brought home a huge haul: 49 books in 5 tote bags on 2 bruised and aching shoulders. All huge trade paperbacks or hardcovers too. Quite the strength-building workout and when this ibuprofen wears off I'm going to regret it.
I just learned of it last week and decided to go. (It is ridiculous, btw, that I hang out on bookish social websites all day every day and still I don't learn of these events. Same with the Brooklyn book festival that I discover every year the day after.)
After the big disappointment NY Comic Con was this year (a way too crowded disappointment) I think I'm going to trade off to the Book Expo instead for the next year or two. Most of the swag I bring home from NYCC are books anyway at this point. Also one day as a pack mule beats 2-3 days of pack-muling.
