So, I told myself I wouldn’t bring/take home that many books to KidlitCon. Obviously, I didn’t listen to myself. This pile contains ones I brought (some of which I’ve already read) and a bunch which I picked up to bring home. My eyes are definitely bigger than my reading ability.
The Nest, Kenneth Oppel
The Life of Zarf: The Troll Who Cried Wolf by Rob Harrell
The Hollow Boy, Jonathan Stroud
The Curious Tale of the In-Between by Lauren DeStefano
Nerd Camp 2.0 by Elissa Wasserman (bought to have it signed because I forgot my copy of Nerd Camp.)
Cut Both Ways by Carrie Mesrobian
The Temple of Doubt by Anne Levy
Sword and Verse by Kathy MacMillan
The Jumbies by Tracey Baptiste
To Catch a Cheat by Varian Johnson
Prayers for Sale by Sandra Dallas
Honor Girl by Maggie Thrash (I bought to have it signed. She’s my new favorite.)
Dragons Beware and Giants Beware by Rafael Rosado and Jorge Aguirre (which I brought so they would sign them for K)
I promise to do a wrap-up post (even though I didn’t really take that many pictures) about the con sometime within the next week (though it might not be until next Sunday). I do want to mention, however, that I (perhaps foolishly) offered to head it up next year, and it’ll be in Wichita. That will definitely be a different KidlitCon experience. (Is it safe to say that I’m intimidated?)
What’s on your TBR pile?

Woohoo! Now that you've posted it, is it real? Let me know what I can do to help.
I'm with you on the books. I came home with a whole bag, and that's on top of the Cybils reading we have ahead over the next couple of months!
