The show's clearly winding down. Didn't pick up any galleys this morning, and yesterday I acquired just three, including Sherry Jones's The Sword of Medina and Shandi Mitchell's Under This Unbroken Sky, out from HarperCollins in Sept, about life on the Canadian prairie during the Depression. The third was for a nonfiction book called Shelf Discovery, given out at the book blogger panel yesterday afternoon, essays about "the teen classics we never stopped reading." It's amazing how many of the books profiled in there (Jane-Emily, lots of Judy Blumes, Jacob Have I Loved) were favorites of mine, too.
I spent most of yesterday in sessions; the book blogger panel was lots of fun (and introduced me to a bunch of new blogs). I caught up with NoveList colleagues at the morning session on writing annotations then sat in on a panel discussion on book reviewing in 2010.
I took home ten historical novels; carrying the bag on the subway was an adventure, but who could resist?
