Good morning everyone! This Sunday finds me in go-mode for BEA! I have a lot of work and prep to do before I leave in one week, so I’m frantically trying to get everything finished before then. We’ll see if I actually accomplish everything I need to - part of me suspects that I may be working on the train on the way up, and maybe for awhile after I arrive in NYC at the hotel. But one can hope!
I’m very excited about the event. While I won’t be blogging while I’m there, I’ll probably be posting to my Tumblr occasionally. I do have reviews pre-scheduled for the entire duration of the event, so it won’t even seem like I’m gone! Once I return, I’ll do a post or two, but I probably won’t do a day-by-day recap. I’ll definitely do a special edition of Shelving Books featuring BEA books!
I was having a bit of a slow reading week this week, but luckily I had some time to read yesterday, so it became a normal reading week! Most of the books I finished were good, though Bossypants by Tina Fey sticks out in my mind, though not for the reason you probably think. While I found the book amusing, it wasn’t laugh-out-loud funny for me like it was for most other people. Instead, I found it smart, and her social commentary on the perception of women in comedy was outstanding. I really enjoyed it for that reason.
