If you’re like me, you didn’t get to go to Book Expo America (BEA) this past week and have therefore been moping for seven days straight, Twitter has been the bane of your existence, and you want to cry every time you see a picture of your friends’ giant stack of free books. Sure, writing friends, I’m so happy that you are ALL hanging out with me…really. Okay, I kid, I kid. Actually I’m interested in all things BEA and since I didn’t get to go, I figured I would roundup some great posts on what went on in NYC this past week. Enjoy!
