I forgot to tell you I went to BEA ~WIR & TSP

Posted May 31, 2015 by Michelle in The Sunday Post, WIReadview / 31 Comments

WIR vectorstock_43821-1-1Week in READ-view is a post I have posted on Sundays telling you what I have been up to this week and what I read or am reading. The Sunday Post is a meme sponsored by the awesome Kimba at the Caffeinated Book Reviewer. It’s a chance to share news. A post to recap the past week, showcase books and things we have received and share news about what is coming up for the week on our blog.

Real Life & Blog News:

Before I get to BEA let me give you a quick Update. Ryan is still in the hospital but we are hoping he will come home Wednesday but only if they think he is ready. The Doctor will check on him on Monday and I will know probably by Tuesday if he is coming home. I hope I have good news for you all next week and my Ryan will be himself and home were he belongs.

So I am a complete doofus and never mentioned that I was going to be at BEA on Friday. I have been going for three years now with my sister and we always have a great time. This year it was set up a bit different but I was ok with that however they really weren’t giving away any major books at the booths like they did last year or at least not on Friday when I was there. The lines were not bad at all and I really loved meeting all the authors. I plan to have a full post about it this week but for one day I came home with 37 books (7 of them are signed), 2 ebooks from a free download and a lot of Swag .

IMG_3079I will have a list of books with links in the BEA post but if you want to see what I got you can check out my BEA Books 2015 Shelf on Goodreads, HERE

This week was also my Birthday and my Husbands Birthday but we didn’t feel like celebrating so we are going to wait until Ryan comes home and have a cake and go out to dinner. It’s just not the same without him.

  1. I really hope Ryan is home by now, Michelle, I keep sending positive and healing thoughts both his and your way!

    WOW, that’s a lot of books to get in just one day – I wonder how you’d have done at RT πŸ˜‰ *hugs*

  2. Nice haul, Michelle. I hope you enjoy them all and I’m glad you had the chance to go to BEA. I hope Ryan is doing better and will be able to be home soon. It isn’t the same when one of your children isn’t there. Hopefully this week is going well. <3

  3. Hope Ryan comes home this week and you get to celebrate your birthdays with him. Glad you had fun at BEA, would have been a great distraction. I’d love to go, just once, which is probably a big ask all the way from Australia lol but hey I can hope. Happy reading πŸ™‚

  4. I did BEA for two years and got a lot of books. But, I did not read many of them and since I am old school, I cannot just toss them. I felt BEA was more for publishers and book sellers. And, I was kind of appalled at how badly it was organized and the same with the blogger con.

    Wow, I sound so cranky. I would like to go to a con where blog discussion centered on workshops (not panels, not sales) was discussed, where we met authors and readers but didn’t have to go all “fan girl,” Where it was less about standing in line for autographs, or what costume was best.

    Happy Birthday to you and your husband.:)

    I’ll keep my fingers crossed for Ryan;I hope he’s home soon.

    I’m glad you made it in to BEA; someday I’ll get there. I’ll have to check out your godreads shelf and see what you got. πŸ™‚

  6. I hope Ryan gets to come home this week and things are better. That’s exciting you went to BEA! I want to go one of these days. I can’t wait for COYER to start and I’m planning the books I’ll be reading. I hope you get to celebrate your birthdays this week and have a great week!

  7. I hope you can take Ryan home this week, it must be weird not having him at home even if it’s for the best.

    Sounds like you had a great day at BEA and got lots of books! Nice haul! I hope you get to celebrate your birthdays next week when Ryan is home. Those flowers look great!

    I am already impatient for Coyer to start, it’s going to be fun! I hope you have a great week and enjoy all your new books!

    • It’s very strange not having him home. I have been sleeping in his bed because it’s just weird that no one is in it and it makes me feel closer to him.

      It was a lot of fun πŸ™‚ Was a nice distraction from everything for a little while. I hope so too. The flowers were so pretty my daddy did a good job lol

      LOL I am so glad, it is going to be a lot of fun.

  8. Happy belated birthday πŸ˜‰ I understand how you didn’t feel like celebrating with your kid away at the hospital, hopefully you’ll be able to do it all together next week. 39 books in just a day ?! Wow, that day was fruitful, lol, then again, BEA doesn’t happen every day πŸ™‚ So enjoy them, have a great week with all of your family, hopefully !

  9. I have serious book envy! What fun and how fantastic to meet all the authors! I can definitely understand not being in the mood to celebrate birthdays this week. Hopefully Ryan will be home soon and you can make up for the delay with something extra special. Happy belated birthday and have a great week!

    • Lol it was really a nice day. I am hoping to be able to go next year for the entire event. I believe it’s in Chicago, it will be a little vacation for me and my husband I think πŸ™‚

      I hope so too, the house just isn’t the same without him.

      Thank you, Katherine πŸ™‚

  10. Glad you made it to BEA- sound fun. And a great stack of books! I’ll look forward to your post on that – and your thoguhts on Get Dirty too. I was a big fan of the first book.

    Happy birthday! πŸ™‚
