ALA Midwinter 2010: Boston, Meetings, and Exhibit Floor Loot

Late (as always, but whatever… POPCORN!)… I went to Midwinter as an ALA Emerging Leader, I emerged all over the place, I got to hang with my blogging buddy in her old stomping grounds, I saw a very ill-advised production of [title of show], and I picked up tons of swag. Which, frankly, I wasn’t going to blog about, because all those posts where people crow about all the free stuff they’ve ended up with have always reminded me a little bit too much of my mom’s joy in eating all the free samples at Sam’s Club and calling that “lunch”… but now that I’m the one with the swag, I understand better the urge to crow about it.

So here’s the pile of stuff I’m beating my chest over this month…

ARCs that I will probably read at some point (except I’m old-school, so I really want to call them galleys, and honestly I have this weird squick about them):

Books that I will probably read at some point:

Books/ARCs going directly to classrooms in my building:

It all fit in a box that only cost $10 to ship! Thank god for library rate.
