Hello there! Today is day two of my BEA Recap posts for #BEA14! ICYM the first post, CLICK RIGHT HERE. While I was writing my original BEA post, I was trying to think of something fun to do. When I thought of this, I *knew* I had to do it! This inner commentary of all three BEA days last year allows you to kind of really DIVE DEEP into my mind (CREEPY) and experience BEA from my POV that you don’t hear aloud. SO, without further adeu, here it is!
XANDER’S INNER COMMENTARY:
The Javits Center is giant.
Why are there dancing bunnies.
Which line is the one I’m supposed to be in?
They have daily show planners?!
Flip phones don’t Tweet well.
The show started 5 minutes ago. Why haven’t they let us in?
This escalator is SLOW.
Oh, hey HarperCollins!
Oh, hey Scholastic!
Oh, hey Macmillan!
Oh, hey Disney!
I have a lot of tote bags.
I have books in my arms and I have 10 tote bags in my hand.
Tell me there’s not something wrong with that picture.
Uh, the Lauren Oliver line has already formed?
Mom, get in the Lauren Oliver line.
Wow, there are a lot of books here.
Garth Nix, your accent is SWAG.
Where’d my schedule go?
*Book Shimmy* tote acquired.
Oh, thanks for handing me this ticket, dude. I guess I’ll get in this signing line.
Oh, hey Kimmy!
This line is long.
Day 1 is over, and HOW MANY books did I get?
Crap, I’m tired.
Yay, I got a ticket!
Hey nice people in line wanna talk?
I brought too many business cards.
This is not a line, this is a smush.

Time for a panel!
Wait, I’m going to get The Iron Trial first.
DARN these weird cover things!
Oop, panel is full.

PEOPLE YOU ARE COOL.
Michael Grant, you are even cooler.
Yes, per your orders, I will type cuss words into the subject of the email regarding an interview if you don’t reply to the first one.
Oh! Hey Harper publicist!
