The craziness has officially hit epic proportions! Not only was today the biggest book "drop" day but it was also another scorcher. How can it get more exhausting you ask? Well, I've had some severe insomnia issues for the past week and a half or so, culminating in a mere 4hrs (if I'm being generous really) of broken sleep last night. Seriously. I was so desperate at one point that I started counting sheep. I got up to 500 before I gave up. Needless to say I was walking around in a slight daze by about 2. The lovely Steph of Fangs, Wands and Fairy Dust suggested Benadryl! What a genius. After supper I picked some up and tonight will be the official recoup sleep. I must, must tell her how much I love her on Friday!
All the same, the day was FANTASTIC! There were so so many amazing books and authors (Eoin Colfer was so adorable I wanted to fold him up and take him with all the books), and the hubby kept running into amazing surprises (unlisted or unannounced signings and "drops" -brief book releases at the publishers booths). Nothing will perk a sleepy girl up faster then strolling up to her in a boring long line and presenting her with a signed copy of Passion (Lauren Kate was only supposed to be signing chapter samplers so I quickly forgot she was even going to be there in all the other excitement), "I'm pretty sure you're reading this right?". Have I mentioned how much I love him?
We are officially at 64 books, a scary- how are we going to pack this- amount. So thank goodness tomorrow is pretty quiet! And I was being really picky about what I took, unbelievable hey?
The super duper exciting thing for Thursday? The Libba Bray signing at the Scholastic book Store in the evening.
I have some super stuff to add to the giveaway as well so keep tuned late tomorrow for details of the additions.
