Preparing for New York…

Tomorrow Kip and I head to Sacramento, and then on Saturday we board our flight to New York City and the BEA and Book Blogger Convention.

Preparing for this trip has been crazy! Not only did it involve detailed planning to schedule things, but it also included a couple of shopping trips…and then decisions about clothing, things to bring, and of course which books would go with me.

I’ve been pretty selective about my book choices because, let’s face it, I may not have any time to actually read…and I also want to leave room in my luggage for the books with which I will undoubtedly come home. BUT, I will have a six hour plane flight in each direction to spend time reading.

So here is the reading material that is going to NYC with me:

The Penelopiad, by Margaret Atwood
Tinkers, by Paul Harding
The Secret Lives of People in Love, by Simon Van Booy
There is No Me Without You, by Melissa Fay Greene

I am also bringing along my current read (In the Wake of the Boatman) which I hope to finish before my flight leaves San Francisco. At any rate, whether it be on the west coast or the east…I am planning on Bookcrossing this one. I may also tuck in one or two more books to set free in NYC – I’ll let you know if I do that!

I did not take a photo of the luggage…it is too scary, although half of it is empty right now…I plan on coming home with full bags!

See you on the East Coast!
