Here is the stack of books from #BookExpo and #BookCon2019 that are still TBR. I finally am making a list of them all. I have another group on my library cart. Of course, that doesn't count the ones in my reading room. I need to get motivated!

LibrarianRyan Cursed! Another Kingdom! Iron Magicians!! Such fun selections. 2w
TheSpineView @LibrarianRyan I know! Every time I look at the stacks I wish I had 6 months of just to read! Or 2w

Ohhh noooo! I‘ve made a big book purchase! 😳😱🙈

I couldn‘t control myself!

It was crazy. Insaaane!

I have so much to read already. I...I...I-I-I don‘t know what came over me... 🥵🤒

@TheReadingMermaid was on the phone with me when this all happened. She couldn‘t stop laughing. It was a HOOT!

Then-then the cashier tells me I could get *yet another* book for FREE!!! 😱😱😱🥴

Can...anyone else relate to my plight?! 🙈

Want to see them?

August TBR! I'm doing a monthlong readathon called #arcaugust to catch up on upcoming releases that I picked up at #bookexpo ; these are all coming out at the end of August or early September. Currently reading the tagged book and it's a really hilarious fantasy read so far!

Skyrimir I LOVE those bookends! 3w
Reviewsbylola After the Flood is on my TBR. 3w
AutumnRLS Dying to get my hands on a copy of Gideon. I'm so jealous. :) 3w

Storm and Fury | Jennifer L. Armentrout

Hummmmmm. Look what I now have 2 of. I guess that means I should give one away. So, someone from my #BBRC will won my second copy on July 1 when the challenge starts. Don‘t know what I‘m talking about, it‘s a reading challenge. Check out the tag for more info.

Eggbeater I just met Jennifer Armentrout on Monday and got a signed copy of her book. She was great. She has an amazing story herself. 2mo
LibrarianRyan @Eggbeater Yeah, last year at #BookExpo she was giving out The Darkest Star, and we (@faenoir i believe) didn't have tickets. It was the end of the last day so we stalked her booth hoping to get a copy that a ticketed person didn't come and collect because it was the end of the day. We did. She was really great about it. 2mo
Jee_HookedOnBookz This book sounds great! Keeping my fingers and toes crossed that I'd win it! 😁🤞😄 2mo

Herschelian For an ignoramus living in Scotland/China, please explain what Bookcom is? (edited) 2mo
Herschelian I meant Bookcon - whoops, fat finger syndrome! 2mo

MrBook @Herschelian , great question! BookCon is part of BookExpo. BookExpo is the publishing industry‘s primary annual convention for professonials in and associated with books: booksellers, librarians, book bloggers, audiobook engineers, literary agents, etc. BookCon is the open-to-the-public portion of the convention which occurs during the weekend. Anyone can attend and meet authors, get books signed, buy merchandise, network, etc. (edited) 2mo
Herschelian Thanks for that detailed reply to my question. I presume it is for the US publishing industry? Is it held in the same place every year? What a stunning event to attend! 2mo
MrBook @Herschelian You‘re most welcome ☺️🤗! It‘s primarily the US publishing industry, but there‘s many other countries represented, especially China, Japan, and the U.K., who can have quite a few large booths. The convention‘s organizers had a plan to rotate among various large US cities, but after trying it in Chicago a couple years ago with less-than-anticipated results, the convention may wind up remaining in NYC as it has. (edited) 2mo
GripLitGrl @MrBook Thank you😀 It was great to meet you in person! 😊 2mo

When I was leaving #BookCon for the last time on Sunday, I saw this going by while waiting for the ferry. That‘s a biiiiiig ship! I‘ve never been on one. Have you?!

#BookExpo #BEA #NYC

TheSpineView Yes! A total of 6 cruise ships including one in Hawaii and a river boat on the Nile. 2mo
jb72 I‘ve been on two cruises. The snorkeling was a lot of fun! 2mo
teebe Never been on one but they‘re so huge they freak me out a little. I‘ve passed them sitting in the harbour in Vancouver and it‘s like having a whole new building on the street and then later, it‘s just gone. 2mo

Maggie_Reads No, but I‘ve seen them in the port of Galveston (we live two hours away). They are huge and fascinating but I‘ve never had the urge to go on a cruise. Just not a fan of being ON a boat. 2mo
LibrarianRyan Josh and I did a Disney cruse. We were on the “small” ship. Loved it. Would do it again. 2mo
Peddler410 My family was an the Disney Wonder this time last year. We went to Alaska and it was wonderful! 2mo
Susanita This is the same size as the one I was on last month. Same number of life boats. 2mo
Magpiegem My husband and I took out 3YO and 9month old on a cruise from Miami around the Caribbean. It was fantastic except some (a few) of the travellers act in a pretty horrid way. But my little boy thought the Dr Seuss theme was amazing. We couldn‘t get them out of the kids club... so sometimes we just left them there and went to the beach alone- bliss! 2mo
OrangeMooseReads Never been and never plan to. I don‘t do boats. Also I find cruise ships unnerving something that big should no float and yes I find airplanes unnerving as well. 2mo
CouronneDhiver Yes!!! I just went on my 9th cruise- best type of vacation ever! 2mo
Chrissyreadit Did you move to Staten Island? My mom took the ferry every day to college a million years ago. 2mo
MrBook @Chrissyreadit No, this is the ferry terminal that goes to NJ 😁. I still live in eastern PA. 2mo
Chrissyreadit That sounds like fun though- 2mo

June TBR! Just kidding, but that would be impressive, wouldn‘t it? This is my final haul for #bookexpo & #bookcon . Had a lovely time learning about books, hearing from awesome authors, & meeting wonderful littens...now to decide what to read first...

Briary Such an awesome haul! I'm eagerly anticipating the release of Ten Thousand Doors of January, but there are so many interesting books coming this year I am almost overwhelmed 😁 2mo
AutumnRLS I'm so incredibly jealous that you got a copy of Gideon. I tried to talk Tor into giving me a copy, but they insisted they didn't have any. Lol. 2mo
