One of the pleasures of attending BookExpo America is the opportunity to be surrounded by people who publish books, write books, write about books, and like nothing better than talking about books! As part of this year’s event, organizers held a special day for book bloggers.
I’m planning to write more about this opportunity to hear from and speak with established bloggers--and those just starting out, as well as the authors I met. But in the meantime, here’s a glimpse of what was on display and under discussion.
Bloggers were given advance copies of a handful of books including novels by Jennifer Weiner (one of Chick Lit’s queens) and Amy Sohn, a book-informed memoir by Will Schwalbe, and a guide to reducing stress by Paul Huljich.
The beautifully illustrated SprinkleBakes, a dessert cookbook by Heather Baird, was also distributed. I’m particularly impressed with the cake below.
