Mini ALA summary

WOW!  That's the best way to sum up my experience at ALA Mid Winter.  This was my first time attending an event like ALA and I was overwhelmed and excited.  The experience was wonderful and crazy at times.  While getting some truly AMAZING books, my favorite part was meeting some of the authors and bloggers that I had only talked to online.  A huge thanks to all the publishers who shared their ARCs with all in attendance and took your time to talk about upcoming books with me, you are wonderful.  
While my clothes are unpacked, washed and put away, my books aren't quite there yet.  Since they say a picture is worth a thousand words, here are a few pictures from this weekend
 (with more to follow later in the week when real life settles down):  

A view from the car.....


A few of the amazing books I picked up!

There will be more pictures to follow. 

 Hanging with a few friends (I didn't get nearly enough pictures with everyone!):

 Check back later in the week to see all to goodies I picked up plus pictures 
from other events over the weekend.
