My absolutely towering complete stack is over at Reading Reality. And it's ginormous!

This is the semi-annual post-ALA (American Library Association) Conference stack. An ALA Conference is like BookExpo for librarians. The publishers bring their forthcoming books - and the authors of those books, to the conference to get librarians to add books to their library's collections.

I always find way too many interesting books, but I do not pick up print ARCs, which are everywhere. I ask for eARCs from NetGalley and Edelweiss for the books that sound interesting. This reserves the print ARCs for librarians who are still working at libraries, and saves my back from toting them around the exhibit floor.

Books are heavy. VERY heavy!

It's a win-win as far as I'm concerned. My husband agrees wholeheartedly, as he used to do a lot of the book toting.

The following is a sample of what I saw and really liked. Please check out Reading Reality to see the entire haul!

  1. I love going to conferences, and I have to admit that I do enjoy print ARCs when I go. I usually get only e-ARCs at home, since I live in Europe. Burt you're right -books are very heavy.
    Have a great weekend.

  7. I miss attending book conferences! I haven't been to one in ages! I envy that you had your hubby to help tote them! Every time I went to one I was totally solo and had to haul a TON of books all by myself! I guess it was good for muscle building! Lol.

    Hope you enjoy your new reads! They're mostly new to me ones!

    Here's my STS
