No Books Today is a short post. I will be spending the day at the Book Expo America (BEA) in NYC. It is my first expo and I could really have used a friend, who knows the convention, to be my guide. People are collecting dozens of books and I only got one. I just can't figure out the trick to it. Here I am in book hog heaven. There are HUNDREDS of books, there are publishers, authors and editors just swarming the Jacob Javits Center like flies to honey. But I just don't know what to do with this embarrassment of riches. I am both intoxicated and exhausted by the experience. What would you do if the candy shop door was thrown open and you could take any candy you wanted? Today I have another chance at figuring it out. Next week I will let you know how it goes. By the way the book I got is in galley stage. It is by Chris Brogan and Julien Smith. It is called Trust Agents: Using the Web to Build Influence, Improve Reputation, and Earn Trust. His talk was fun and easy going and very helpful. The line was really long to get the galley signed by Chris and Julien so I just snagged a book and went on my way. Here's hoping I can get another book today. Wish me luck.
