NYC Teen Author Fest - Signing at Books of Wonder

Last Sunday Books of Wonder hosted a mega YA author signing.  Forty four authors were slated and there was a surprise guest,  Ellen Hopkins (Crank, Glass, Tricks).  Of course, I had to go buy two of her books to get signed.   You can see what other titles I got by reading my IMM post.

Not only was it a great author festival it was a great blogger networking day.  I drove down with Maria from The Serpentine Library and also got to see Mitaly from Alley of Books and Rachel from The Book Muncher once again.  I met up with Rachel from Bookshelf Lust who introduced me to Bethany
from Bookish Bethie.  Also, Gaby from Starting Fresh recognized me from the Book Blogger Convention last year so we reacquainted ourselves.

It was tons of fun and of course, I bought more books than I intended, but I could have done a lot more damage.  Stay tuned, because I will be giving away some of the books I acquired.

Me with Maggie Stiefvater - She looks soooo young!
