Got up early and headed to breakfast with the folks from MacMillan (Holt) who booktalked and then brought us a special gift: Mary Pearson!!!! We left with ARCs and headed over to the convention center (and I do not mean the royal "we"; I am rooming with pal and liberrian, Lois Buckman). Headed to the booth and worked there from 9-2:30.
Folks I have not seen one session. I have worked the booth instead This must end.
Came back to the hotel now to freshen up for dinner with Random House. No time to read once I cleared tweets, updates, email, and the rest. However, I did read this one yesterday:
SHARK VS. TRAIN by Chris Barton (LBYR, 2010) is the story of who would win in a battle between a shark and a train. The answer? It depends/ Is the battle in water, does it involve opposable thumbs? Funny stuff made even better by Tom Lichtenfield's illustrations.
Now back to preparing for dinner. More to come once I get home, Tomnorrow is my presentation with Rosemary Chance on new books.
