Home again

I'm home from NCTE. The conference itself was pretty quiet, but I did score some wicked cool stuff:

Signed galley of Diary of a Wimpy Kid: Rodrick Rules by Jeff Kinney
Signed galley of The Dead and the Gone by Susan Beth Pfeffer
Galleys of new novels by Linda Sue Park, Jeanne Birdsall, and Gary D. Schmidt
Overpriced swag from Mary Poppins on Broadway (dude, the Munchkin will totally flip)

Lots of bloggers were out and about, including Fuse, Chicken Spaghetti, Jen Robinson, and Liz B. I also got a goodly amount of reading done (thank you, time alone with no dependents!), so new haiku will come soon.

Oooooh! Is that the sequel to Life as We Knew It? I'm so jealous! I want it!

Emily! I'm so glad we had a chance to meet. By the time I left the city, I had a bag full of NCTE items, a globe, and a 600-piece puzzle of the world. (I bought those last two at the Hagstrom store.) Oh, and a very light wallet...

EM said...

Yes, Sheila, it is the sequel, and I had a total geeky fan-girl moment when I got SBP to sign it. And Susan, it was great to meet you, too!

Liz B said...

It is so great to put faces with names

It was great to meet you, Emily!

I scored the Life as We Knew It sequel also (though I wasn't able to get it signed). And I'm such a geek that I stayed up until 2:30 in the morning Saturday night finishing it.

A new Jeanne Birdsall book?! Is it a sequel to The Penderwicks?

EM said...

Yes! It's awesome! I am waiting to blog that one until closer to pub (April).
