ALA update

Well, I am trying to do something I have never done in WordPress before…insert pictures. I must apologize to you and Lolly for the blurriness of said pictures. Turns out that spiffy camera you all have in your iPhone is not the same as the one in my iTouch.

First, I have been looking at books for 2013. I just want to prove to Lolly and Roger that I am always working! Though I have seen many, many books that show promise, this one really blew me away. It’s coming out in April and is called On a Beam of Light. Here is the link. I read it at the booth and am working in sleep deprivation mode, but, even with compromised judgment, I think this is one to watch. I was excited to see that Vladimir Radunsky is a naturalized US citizen now.

Second, there were some familiar books displayed…sometimes together. I never notice who publishes what, but apparently these two are from the same house.

Third, my book enabler (Deb Taylor) and I have held back on grabbing books, but we still have been hauling things like pack mules.
