Daily Thoughts 05/31/2017

I checked the library Twitter and Facebook this morning.

I am looking at the Book Expo 2017 Galley and Signing Guide.

I am also looking at the librarian section of Book Expo. 

In addition, I have looked through the Exhibitor List.

I registered for the show when I got there.  I went to the remainders area and looked for a few minutes.

The event that I went to today was the Book Expo Adult Editors talk from 1:45 p.m. to 3:00 p.m..  There were two galleys which I chose from the talk, Stay With Me a Novel by Ayobami Adebayo who is a Nigerian author and The Woman In the Window by A.J. Finn which is noire.  I also picked up a copy of Buzz Books 2017 Fall/Winter which is a compilation of excerpts of highly anticipated books that will be at the show.

I had a chance to pick up Book Expo 2017 Show Guide and Floor Plan.  In addition, I picked up the Publishers Weekly guide to Book Expo.

I wanted to go to the Book Expo 2017 The Future of Publishing is New session, but it was at the same time as the Adult Editors Book Buzz Panel.

I spent some time in the VIP lounge.  I have put together a list of all the booths I plan to visit.  I also am going to a few networking events and a discussion of what I use Book Expo America for.

I spent a little time working on publicity for an event when I got home.  I also spent a little time working on evaluations for finished grants.
