I’ve been getting things in the mail this week.

BEA is coming up quickly. I started sorting through everything that is going on. On May 11 I’m helping out with a session in the afternoon on Negative Reviews. I’m also an On Site Correspondent for Armchair BEA but I haven’t been assigned anything to do yet.
I’m starting to go through all the sessions to see what books I might be interested in. That is long slow work. Here’s my list so far.
I’m going to speak the blasphemy here.
I don’t care at all about having any books signed.
Of all the authors that are going to be there, I only want a picture with one. I want a picture with Kareem Abdul-Jabar. I want that mostly so I can post it casually on Facebook with a caption of “Just hanging out with Kareem this afternoon.”
With the prospect of getting lots of new physical books in soon from BEA, I need to purge. I only have 2 bookcases in my house and they are overflowing. I found a used bookstore that may take some of them. If they don’t go there, I need to make a Goodwill run to drop them off.
