I had the best time at BEA. Books books books! That's all it is for 3 days!
I shipped home 100 lbs of books! Yes I did! And most of them are for you! (Hate to admit it but I'm keeping some for myself!! Hey I didn't almost die twice for nothin'! :).
A little bit about BEA - its like playing the Hunger Games only in a bookstore instead of an outside arena. And Books are a hotter commodity than any food or weapons. In fact, books ARE your weapons! I'm not kidding when I saw I almost died twice - either by being trampled or killed with a new Hardback.
The slogan of the week with Jen Hayley and Shana Silver: "If we lose you, you are on your own!" ;) If you dont believe me, check this out!

1) You must be a loyal follower to be eligible for any of the prizes. Why? Because I love meeting you guys and finding new bloggers/tweeters and can't unless you follower or comment. Also I think its only fair to reward those who come and listen to me rant :)
2) You must remember to enter for each prize. Remember each prize will ask you to take one action. So if you follower today and comment, it does not mean you are in the drawing for the whole month. You will be in the drawing today! Got it?
Oh yeah, and when I hit 1,000 followers on my twitter and blog, I have a HUGE marketing prize you don't want to miss! So pass make sure your friends know about the Bonanza. Also if you sign up for my newsletter, at the end of the month, I will giveaway a secret package.
