Four of us attended BookExpo America in New York City this past weekend. For book lovers it is quite the event -- lots and lots of (forthcoming) BOOKS (what else!) and authors and first time face-to-face meetings with people we've "talked" to for years. We nearly broke our backs with our book haul. Actually, since Poornima and I took a bicycle taxi from the Javitts Center to Port Authority, it wasn't exactly our back that was breaking... but honestly, we did try to warn our "driver." If you want to see what's to come, please visit our FORTHCOMING TITLES section... it is a work in progress, always, but after our visit to BEA it is an especially long list.
So, summer is finally here. Hope everyone has good vacation plans and lots of time to read.
