I'm off today for two weeks in New York City, or, I should say, for the first of two trips there in two weeks. I'm leaving today for Book Expo America, the publishers' showcase of books and authors. I attend the Library Journal Library Day of Dialog, listen to editors and library marketing representatives talk about their favorite forthcoming books, and, of course, go through exhibits to see those books. And, there are breakfasts and lunches featuring authors, along with the chance to catch up with friends who are authors, publishers' reps, and librarians. I love BEA.
I also love Broadway. I'm going to see Les Miserables one more time while Ramin Karimloo plays Jean Valjean. Everyone who knows me well knows that I go to shows every night I can while I'm in New York.

And, then next week, my family heads to New York. We're doing fun tourist stuff. And, we're going to three shows while we're there.
I'm telling you all this to say my blog will be very sporadic while I'm gone. For the first time in ages, I'm not taking my laptop. I'll have a post or two up while I'm gone, a review on Thursday, a giveaway on Friday, but I won't be posting regularly. Instead, I'm going to enjoy every minute of these trips. I'll share when I come home!
