Read Barbarian Girl: The Burning Blade of the Badlands Part 1 by Gene Ambaum and Willow Payne

Book Expo America 2009

Back in October we told you to save the date for Book Expo America 2009 May 28-31 in my hometown of New York City - now it's time to sign up!

And this is as good a place as any to formally announce that the entire Unshelved crew will be there in a giant booth (it was the only one they could find that would house our enormous egos). Gene and I will be putting on some sort of show, and we'll also be carrying around a video camera interviewing attendees, guests, and exhibitors. We hope you'll join us at our favorite library conference!

P.S. Two years ago we created this custom Unshelved comic book (PDF) to explain some of the magic of BEA. It's as true today as it was then.

P.P.S. If you tried to register earlier this week, please try again - I just got word that registration is now officially open, and I even tested it myself. You're good to go.

Update: It seems they are still having troubles with registration, so hold off until you hear from me. Sorry for all the confusion!
