Day two of BEA 2009
First my poor feet have disowned me. I have never made them do this much walking in one day in a very long time. But it is a very good tired and very good sore feet. Another wonderful day at the BEA.
Before I forget I realized this morning that I had forgotten to list out a couple of books I had received at the Authors breakfast those books were:
Strega Nona Harvest by Tomie DePaola
Air Head by Meg Cabot.
Now on to today's list of books that were autograophed.

Frank McKinney for The Tap
Frank McKinney and his daughter for Dear Fred, Flying Lunchboxes and the Good Luck Circle

Bedtime with Rollo by brothers David and Seth Bier (Here I must take a minute and tell you how awesome these two gentlemen were not only did they give me one book and one stuffed toy of Rollo but they gave me a total of three books and three stuffed toys and signed all three books. They are helping me keep the peace with my nieces and nephews. These two gentleman were awesome and I think everyone should have a copy of their book.)
Other books picked up but not signed are as follows:

What to expect when visitng my blog...
I would like to take a minute and share with you what to expect when looking over my blog. This page is an opportunity to share with others what I like to do in my spare time. These activities range from reading, which I need to do more of (have a mountain of books to conquer and I still buy more =)...) making my own greeting cards, ornaments and more.
