Today was my last day full day in NYC, and as such, it was pretty sad but also incredible. I went to the Random House Power Readers breakfast, toured Central Park, wandered the BEA floor, hung out at a fabulous cafe and watched the traffic go by, rode the subway for the last time, and generally soaked up the city ambiance. I made contacts with some wonderful publicists, and got my hands on some ARCs I am really, really excited about. All in all: everything I had dreamed this trip would be, and more.
I would blog all of this with pictures. (I promise I have lots of pictures.) But as I am staying with family, I'm taking this last night in NYC to spend time with my adorable cousins, and also to rest up for the (long) trip home tomorrow. I'll probably be incommunicado till Friday, and so--till then--I just want to say a massive thank you to everyone who made this trip so great. I hope to see you all again soon, and to make it back to BEA within the next few years!
I <3 NYC!
