My BEA Piles

Here are the books I got at BEA this year. I definitely tried to be selective, so the pile isn't that big. But there are some in here that I am really looking forward to reading.

I already mentioned Room by Emma Donoghue.

Another book that got a lot of buzz at BEA was West of Here, which I got signed by Jonathan Evison. (It wasn't until RIGHT NOW that I realized that he also wrote All About Lulu, which I reviewed here). I can't believe I didn't put that together until now.

I am excited to read The Secret Lives of Husbands and Wives by Josie Brown. Can't tell if it's fluff or not.

Picked up new books from Michael Cunningham (By Nightfall) and Michael Chabon (Manhood for Amateurs).

Taroko Gorge by Jacob Ritari, from Unbridled Books, has gotten some great reviews.

Pictures of You by Caroline Leavitt looks good, if gloomy.

And here are the books I brought back for my kids:


We've been working on the doodle books by Deborah Zemke, and the girls are excited to start the Clementine book. Ethan Zohn, of Survivor fame, signed the Soccer World South Africa book. Memoirs of a Goldfish looks adorable, and I am looking forward to delving into the Art with Anything: 52 Weeks of Fun With Everyday Stuff book.

So that's what I got!

    Wow! You did practice restraint! I did the first day but then it was downhill from there!

    I only brought home 6 books for myself. I’m thinking I probably missed out on some really good ones. Enjoy your new books!

    I love looking at the stacks of books everyone brought home. It’s amazing how we were all at the same event and brought back such different books.

    ‘Room’ is one I am dying to read, and I love any Clementine book!
