To begin, I was not able to stay for the whole time but it was for as long as I really needed. We were so tired by One o’clock that we welcomed the car that came to pick us up (thanks fiance!). Next year we decided we are going to splurge for the VIP passes! Having that time out area plus getting to go to bag check and not having to worry about losing your place in line is great as well! I definitely am going to try though.
Now on to the HAUL
26 books were obtained at Bookcon in only 3 hours!!
We also survived the Owlcrate line and got a nifty pin out of it! Our main goal for this day was just to see how many books we could grab. Within the first 10 minutes, we got two books that were sitting on tables and two other romance novels signed by the authors! Success
Pictured below are the
4 books that were free and signed and the 2 books that were paid for.
That means we got 20 whole books were free!
Although, my saddest moment was at the NYCC booth (I was wearing the Uniqlo T-shirt and everything!) Super excited, right? 2 people before me get easy-peasy trivia questions that any person would know and then she gets to me!
“What is the longest river in Australia?”
I’m sorry Australians, but being in America and in no way a geography major, this stumped me. It turns out the answer is Murray River but I just felt so cheated out of a shirt 😦
Do note: the Murray River is 1558 miles long and the Nile river is the longest river in the world and it spans 1,300,000 miles long. That is a crazy difference just to point out.
I hope everyone had a great weekend or even just one day at Bookcon and I can’t wait to see all of you again next year! ❤
