BEA 2016: The Books

This is a post tracking the books I got each day at BEA and what happened to them because such things interest me. You can also read my more eventful BEA recap in a separate post.

Not shown here: I work in a library and have a lot of blogger friends so I got some books knowing they’d immediately be passed on.

  • Green = Books I read and plan to keep
  • Blue = Books I read and then passed on
  • Red = Books I gave away without reading

This post was inspired by something similar I saw Hannah create a couple of years ago. Basically, it confirms every suspicion that if you are going to BEA solely for the free books, it’s not worth it. It’s also interesting to me to see how “good” I am every year at picking up books I actually want. (The cost aspect is moot this year because I spent sooooo much more with it being in Chicago but also I got in a lot of sightseeing and fun so it balanced out.)
