Heading to Book Expo in Los Angeles

Carrie and are heading to Book Expo America in Los Angeles this week. We know from past experience that we need very comfortable shoes for this 4-day book extravaganza. Over 600 authors will be in attendance and we will have an opportunity to meet many of them and receive signed copies of their books. We will also be taking advantage of many educational seminars that will keep us up to date as booksellers, introduce us to new products and procedures. We take our continuing education very seriously at our store and we are grateful for this opportunity. I will also be contributing to the Bookseller’s Advisory Council, giving feedback to industry professionals from the perspective of a Northwest bookseller.

Our days will be full but thoroughly enjoyable. Seeing, touching and talking about books just can’t be beat. We hope to see some sights and we look forward to the evenings in the hotel where we plan to READ! We will be shipping the books we receive back to the store to share with our staff. We love reading and reviewing the latest in great literature so that we can introduce it to our customers.

I plan to write a short blog report each day of Book Expo. I’ll tell you what I saw, who I met and what I’m excited about. Stay tuned. Will there be chocolates on our pillows? Will I recognize Mariel Hemingway? Does George Hamilton still have that eerie tan? Will we find our way back to LAX? How much coffee does it take to keep on walking? What will we see people reading on the plane? Check back on Thursday to see what we are up to.
