BookExpo America 2008

BookExpo America didn't only sponsor this week's Unshelved, they also agreed to give away a bunch of great gifts for a few lucky librarians and educators who register for BEA 2008 through our site. Said gifts include the ability to jump to the front of an autograph line, a free author's breakfast, and a ticket to see Lewis "Back in" Black. We're chipping in too, giving away appearances in an upcoming Unshelved comic strip and coffee with Gene and myself. In deference to tax season the drawing for the first six winners will be Wednesday April 16th, with drawings every other week until the show begins. Register now to maximize your chances to win!

Sound like fun? Visit Unshelved@BEA to find out more about the contest, BEA itself, and all the fun stuff we'll be doing there (there's quite a bit). There's even a never-published-on-paper 14-page Unshelved comic book which you'll enjoy even if you have no interest in attending North America's largest gathering of book, um, stuff.
