The service manager told me I could move to a desk in the sunny corner of the showroom -- it isn't public because there's a wall in front of me.
I'm loving this -- free WiFi, my laptop, a desk, and books. I told the service-guy I have all day to wait (but not all night, ha) as it is a major service job. I won't be so happy when the bill comes.
To introduce myself, I'm Betty. Once several years ago, a school-librarian friend invited me to drive down to ALA Conference in Atlanta for the day. We paid only to go through the exhibit halls, not for the workshops. I was blown away by all the publishers and authors there. Also made several trips back to the car with goodie bags. I wasn't a blogger then, so many of the names there were new to me.
Now I'm sure BEA is even more awesome, and in NYC too! Trying not to drool. To my delight, here is Armchair BEA for those bloggers staying home or in my case, at the auto dealership.
Come join us in the fun!
