Fresh from the fresh hell that is the Javits Center, Amanda and Sarah chat about Amanda’s adventures at BEA, better known as Book Expo America, and BookCon, which happened last week. Sometimes I can record, edit, and produce an episode in a few days, and I’m lucky to be able to do that this week. We talk about what BEA and BookCon are, what the differences are between them, and what or, more specifically, who each one is for. Amanda talked about some of her experiences at BEA and her experience at BookCon, the wonderful and the execrable. We answer some fun questions, such as: What’s the difference between BEA and BookCon? What comics and books did Amanda learn about this year? How much does Sarah dislike the Javits? Will cats interrupt the podcast? What bookish Brooklyn-based vendor did Amanda fall in love with? And why is Sunday the best day of BookCon? We also talk about a book Amanda loved so much, she’s pretty sure it’s her best book of 2018. Yes, it’s that good.
