BEA 2013

The Horror Librarian was fortunate to attend this year's Book Expo America in New York City.  Here's a photo-blog-bomb of her trip:

Arrival.  Walking to hotel and forgetting how humid NYC can be.  Luckily, I'm the one taking the photo so you can't see how sweaty my 'pits are.

Bibimbap in Korea delicious!  The proprietor, thinking I hadn't been introduced to the culinary miracle that is bibimbap, came over to my table and stirred the contents of my meal together and then mimed how to eat it with chopsticks.  Somehow, this made it even better.
Wandering around the city at night.  Everyone pointing their cameras and cellphones at the same sunset.  I'm not photographing the sunset; I'm photographing the people - aren't I original?
Early morning at the Javits Center.  The hordes of BEA-goers haven't yet been released into the aisles and wait in long lines outside the glass doors. 
This is what it looks like when people start to trickle inside.
The sort of crowd normally seen at BEA.
Yes, I did. And I waited an hour and a half to do it.
