Sunday Salon

Sunday, May 16, 2010

Good morning! It's Sunday again, and for those fellow book bloggers it is only one week until NYC/BEA/BBC!! Yay! I am still working on my schedule, so it is extremely tentative for now. In fact, I really plan on enjoying the city just as much, so we'll see what all I fit in. Here's some things I jotted down for now that I would like to do. Some of these overlap and since I'm trying to fit in other NYC things who knows if I'll actually do them. But here goes.


BEA Editor’s buzz 4:30 to 5:30

Barbara Streisand keynote 6-7


Children’s Author Breakfast 8:00 to 9:30

Book Blogger Convention all day!

I'm thinking I probably won't actually end up at the breakfasts, but otherwise I'm sort of packed! Anyway, back to blog stuff, I finished 3 books this week, though one is a middle readers book... Black Water Rising which I already reviewed, When You Reach Me, and The Red Thread. And I'm currently working on My Name is Mary Sutter. Also, I haven't posted a Throwback Thursday in a while... I'm thinking I'm going to go back to doing that but only once a month or so. So maybe the 3rd or 4th Thursday of every month... so look for that and feel free to join in.

And in big non-book related news, today is the first day of the NBA Eastern Conference Finals!!! Go Magic!!

I'm really excited for you, that you get to go to BEA.

In New York!

I went in 2008, when it was in LA...and I wish I had planned better. But it was still an unforgettable experience. Have a great time!

Here's my salon:

I am so envious of all of you attending BEA!

And can't wait to watch Magic kick some butt this afternoon!

Trisha said...

Yay for the BEA and Blogger Con! Whoop Whoop! Okay, enough cheerleading. :)

Jennifer (Crazy-for-Books) said...

Jenny, I may tag along with you to some of those events!! I still need to figure out what I want to do!! My parents gave me some ideas of touristy things they want to do, so I have to try to figure everything out!! I'm so excited to finally meet you!!!

Amanda said...

We've got a lot of overlap! I updated my whole schedule this morning. :D

Melissa said...

I so wish I was going to BEA. I'm totally bummed. Can't wait to read up about it.

Good for you Jenny. Go Orlando../i can do that u know, since my Spurs are out, but at least we took care of Dallas first. LOL!

Jenny said...

Laurel -- I'm going to try to be as planned as I can!!

Christina -- maybe next year? (BEA, not the magic, lol)

Trisha -- I know!! I'm so excited!! LOL I'm going to e-mail you back probably later this evening!

Jennifer -- Me too!! And of course you can. Have you decided what all events you want to do, yet? Are your parents doing touristy things on their own or are you going with them on them all? Actually, I'm going to e-mail you, so I'll ask you some of this in there. =)

Amanda -- you and I do? If so, then yay! Can't wait to meet you! I'll have to go back and look at your schedule and see what you have on there.

Melissa -- LOL about the Spurs! And re: BEA, maybe next year?

Trish said...

I hope you have a wonderful time in New York, Jenny! I had really hoped to make it but just can't swing it. Sounds like you've got a great schedule while you're there!!

Emidy said...

Wow, sounds like you have a lot planned! Hope you enjoy yourself. said...

I am glad you get to go to NY. I live in NY, but I will not be able to attend, since I have my little one. I don't have time for anything these days.

I hope you'll enjoy NY.

Zibilee said...

So glad to hear that you will be going to BEA! It sounds awesome and hopefully I can attend next year. I will be interested in hearing how it goes for you, and I hope you have a great time!!

Michelle (Red Headed Book Child) said...

You got it down! I have a few of those on my list but I just don't know what to expect yet so i am leaving it wide open!

Can't wait to meet you.
