The Compulsive Reader: I'm Off!

I'm Off!

This year, I managed to scrape enough money together to get myself to New York this coming week for Book Expo America! I am excited to be going back to New York, and a vacation filled with book events every day of the week is pretty much my idea of heaven.

I'll be tweeting incessantly this week at my Twitter page (twitter.com/compelledtoread), so go follow me if you want to see what I'm up to, and for pictures taken on the go! I'm going to some pretty cool places (inside publisher offices, a VIP party, a Harry Potter exhibit, the Strand, and of course, signings galore!) so watch for the fun!

To save money, a bunch of bloggers and I rented out a brownstone in Brooklyn for the week, which should also be a lot of fun. I might not actually ever sleep all week, but there will be more updates coming from twitter.com/casadeblogger as well!

I'll also be going to Book Blogger Convention on Friday, and I plan on tweeting anything of interest that I learn there! So, basically, my Twitter page is where it'll all be happening this week, though I do have some fun things scheduled here this week, just none of it really BEA related.

Have a lovely week, everyone! I hope to see some of you there, and I shall be back next Sunday!

Enjoy yourself!!! It sounds like so much fun and I wish I could experience something as big as BEA... Pity I live so far away from the US! :)
