Hey, ya’ll! It’s time for this year’s BEA Wrap-up podcast! After taking a little time to recover from #BEA16 and BookCon, we’re ready to tackle our favorite parts–and maybe some of our not so favorite parts! Of course, we’re back with our favorite twinnies from Fiction Fare, Erin and Jaime.
- Just like last year, we remind you about our previous posts about BEA, including our 2013, 2014, and 2015 Podcast Episodes and our Pre-BEA posts filled with fun tips.
- We mention our favorite grabs (and biggest disappointments) from BEA this year:
- We talk about bookish schedules and lament on the ineffectiveness of samplers.
- And we get off on a crazy tangent and talk about lines and the seven kinds of hell they cause as well as why the autographing table spaces aren’t being utilized in the best way they could be.
- We discuss how some of us were more selective about what we brought home. Go us!
- We mentioned some of the authors we were the most excited to
squeezemeet. (Books linked above.)
- We make fun of Erin’s #pressback face.
- We talk about how impressed Meg and Kass were that Jaime and Erin didn’t consume copious amounts of Starbucks.
- We dish about some of the awesome blogger events and signings we got to attend.
- We talk about the wonderfulness of Anderson’s Bookshop.
- We giggle over Will Ritter’s Hat.
- We go over some fun aspects of hanging out in Chicago.
- Then we discuss
PierceConBookCon some more, including the crowds:
- We have lots of thank yous.
- We make our early plan for next year–back in NYC!
