Weekly Wrap-Up #18

It’s Friday!  I’m looking forward to a weekend of sitting on my butt and doing absolutely nothing.  After being out of work sick all of last week, I’ve been doing a lot of catch up work and the week has had its ups and downs.  I missed my Monday post, but seem to have gotten things back in order.  Anyway, here’s what this week looked like in books.

Tips for Attending YALC

As many UK readers know, the Young Adult Literature Convention (YALC) is coming up this week!  Part of London Film and Comic Con, YALC celebrates YA books, readers, and authors in one happy weekend.  I’m going to YALC for the first time, as I’m sure many others are too, but I am a seasoned attendee of both New York Comic Con and professional conferences.  I thought I’d share some general conference-going tips to (hopefully) make your life a bit easier and more comfortable at YALC.
