Sturdiest Tote Bag:

Harlequin's tote was incredibly large and very sturdy, so I didn't have to make too many trips to drop off books to my suitcase. There were bigger totes out there, but I was very happy with this one!

Prettiest Tote Bag & Book:

Was walking by the Penguin booth when I saw that Jan Brett was signing her book! And as we were waiting in line, they started handing out these gorgeous tote bags! Squee!

Looking forward to seeing what everyone else picked up at BEA this year!


  1. Looks like you made out pretty well! I know I did, but most of my books are still en route via UPS. I'm not even quite sure what all I have yet. Honestly, the funniest thing for me right now is reading about what books other people grabbed, knowing in my head I have to have gotten in the neighborhood of 50, and then seeing that mine and other peoples' BEA collections seem to overlap only slightly! Crazy, huh?

  2. Wow, look at that loot! Looks like you BEA'd well :) I haven't heard of many of these books, so I'm looking forward to seeing what you think of them!

  3. Are you the one who was posting that you didn't get Clockwork Angel after waiting? I posted after you that you are welcome to mine as soon as I am done with it in a couple of weeks if you still want it.


  4. It looks like you got some awesome books! I don't have any of my books yet, as I shipped them all home.

  5. Good haul! I hope you enjoy it! :)

  6. Megan - It will be like Christmas when you finally get your BEA box! I'm noticing that there aren't very many overlaps with other people either. Crazy is right! *L*

    alitareads - I tried to be selective as I knew I had to carry the books home with me, but some of them were so hard to resist! Had one editor guarantee me that I would love the book, and made me promise to email her once I read it. Hope it's as good as she said!

    Monica - I missed a few titles, but not that one. Thanks for the offer!

    Tara - That's how I felt after reading about BEA09, so HAD to attend this year! Hope you can make it to BEA11!

    Erica - You're going to have so much fun unpacking your boxes! Can't wait to see what you got!

    Donna - Thank you! I'm still a little in shock after the whole BEA experience. But it's a good shock! :D

  7. Your books look so good! I had to pop in and see you mailbox post. I am not doing one until next week.... it will probably be a monster - LOL!!!

  8. Wow, I'm a little envious right now, and kicking myself for having to work instead of joining you guys for all the fun.

  9. Wow! look at all those books, you sure did well!

    I am sure you won't running out of books to read for the forseeable future ;o)

    Glad you had a great time, i am in the UK i would of loved to have attended.



  10. Alexia, wow, you got some great books. I'm really jealous you got to go. I'd really like to go next year. Just curious, did your husband go with you? You mentioned he reminded you to eat first, and I wondered if he was waiting for you in the hotel while you scored all those books or if he was reminding you from home. My husband is not into reading like I am, but he's already agreed to go with me next year...just to carry my books. lol

  11. Sheila - Looking forward to seeing your monster IMM post! :)

    Ryan - Hope you can make it next year, as it was so much fun!

    Naomi - Thanks for stopping by! And you're right, I don't think I'll be running out of books any time soon! *L*

    Lynne - How lucky that your DH offered to go with you next year! Mine just waved goodbye and told me to have fun! *L*

  12. OMG You have sooo many books! I'l be looking forward to your reviews.

  13. Awesome haul! I'm already planning on going back next year :)
    Cool about getting Fat Vampire - I didn't get in line quick enough for that one. So much fun!

  14. I am salivating at all of that loot! What cool tote bags too! Thanks for sharing - so awesome!!

  15. Wow! That's a lot of books. It's probably good I wasn't there.

  16. So very jealous of your LOOT!
    Also loved the pics from the BEA convention. Will have to dedicated a day to read all that you have done!
    WOW! Eyes salivating over the LOOT!

  17. bookmagic - :D

    BookMogul - Can't make up my mind which ones to read first! *L*

    Emily - I'm hoping to go back next year as well, as I loved meeting so many of my fave authors!

    Amused - They were giving out so many cool totes, but I tried not to be greedy. *L*

    Pam - You would have loved it! Maybe next year?

    PK Reeves - Thank you! Had the best time ever!

  18. Wow! You got the mother load! I adore tote bags...both of those are awesome. I really hope I can go next year!

  20. That's a ton of books. Welcome back from BEA.

  21. Oh my! Where do I start? You have an amazing stack, nope sorry, You have amazing stackS of books here. I have counted 7 books that are on my wish list here, and there are some I have not heard of yet that sound interesting to me as well. This is quite some haul! Great!

  22. Michelle - I'm a huge fan of tote bags, so was thrilled I snagged Jan Brett's, as her drawings are so beautiful!

    Shellie - I've been adding titles to my wishlist as well, which is crazy because it's so huge already! I just can't resist all those good books out there! *L*

    Melissa - BEA was book heaven! So glad I was able to go, and fingers crossed I can go next year as well!
