The Haul - Day 2

Friday made me realize that I didn't want to try to haul everything around with me. The Hunk ferried me to and from my breakfast (booklist will be in a separate post) but then I drove back downtown and parked across the street from the convention center. This was very helpful, as it allowed me to ferry a haul over to the pickup and then head back to the exhibit hall with an empty bag!

Just finished up #titletalk chat over on twitter. I'm going to try to get the books from Saturday's breakfast typed up yet tonight. Tomorrow morning we'll need to get up pretty early again because I'd like to check out when I leave to go to the exhibits. (It'd also be a good idea to review my list of which booths are closing at what times.)

Once again I'm tired, but once again it's a good kind of tired. I feel like I've accomplished quite a bit! I don't know if I'm going to be up for the aquarium... it may just be time to head home and get what little rest we can! We'll be back on the road on Thursday, heading to Homossassa Springs!

Amazing hauls!! How do you hear about/get invited to these publishers' conferences? I've been hearing about various ones on other blogs, and I'm jealous! :) Enjoy your new finds!

Well, this one wasn't a publisher's conference. ALA is the American Library Association, and ANYONE can go. You don't have to be an ALA member! (I'm not.)

I heard about this last fall from another teacher when I was glee-ing about going to NCTE, which last year was also within driving distance (at DISNEY WORLD no less!) and was AWESOME. Anyway, when I came back and said something like "AND they even gave us FREE BOOKS!" she was all "you so need to check out the ALA annual convention." The rest of it was Google. :D

Oh, also - the Saturday breakfast WAS a publisher event, and that? That was just luck!

Oh, I didn't see it was ALA - Awesome! I will definitely have to make note of this for future reference.
