ALA: Some Pics!

So, all I really have to say about ALA, was that it rocked. A lot. Seriously, that's my recap... There are no better words to describe it.

We met fabulous people and authors, got some goodies to giveaway to you guys who couldn't make it. (I got lucky because ALA was in DC, so of course I had to grab some super fabulous books for you guys who are farther away!)

Also, two of my CPs, Alexandra and Carol, are pretty much awesome. We had so much fun!

And here's a sampling of the proof:

We were told to act like monkeys. Apparently Carol can't follow directions.

two of my faves

PJ Hoover!


ALA Expo Floor

John Green!

The Cat in the Hat!

Libba Bray!

A Hungry Caterpillar!

David Levithan!

One last shot before C has to leave...

Like I said: this year was lucky for me, since ALA was in DC. But next year? ALA's in New Orleans... So the big question is: who's coming with me???


Oh, and Carol? Just for you? Hottie McBartender =)

  2. Oh my darling, how I do love you. My heart rate doubled when I saw James. *Big. Fat. Sigh* So hot.

    And it totally looks like I'm sitting on Alexandra's lap on picture 5. Ha! As for picture 1, that was totally my monkey expression. Can't you tell? Man, and here I thought I did a great monkey. Shucks.

    But I had such a great time with you guys. I can't wait to see you again!!!

  9. So is it sad that I think John Green is more attractive than Hottie McBartender? Maybe it's cuz I know the man can write. ;)

  14. You disappeared from my Google Reader! I don't know how what happened. I haven't been here in weeks....

    This looks like great fun. I need to go to more conferences. I might drool in front of so many books and go fangirl in front of the authors.
