Kidlitosphere Conference Loot

ConflootcropI came back with lots of great stuff from the First Annual Kidlitosphere Conference, and thought that I would share the list with you all (click to enlarge the photo). I took four books with me, and was able to get them signed:

I won a prize in the raffle - an amazing set of eight books, contributed by Faith Hochhalter, Children’s Book Buyer for Changing Hands Bookstore, on behalf of various publishers. Faith did an amazing job of talking up these books, and I was SO happy when I won one of several sets. Here's what was included:

And I picked up a few other titles from the author event organized by Esme Raji Codell:

I also acquired various postcards, bookmarks, and pins. And a fun pack of gumballs from Ruth Spiro. My favorite postcard was from Ellen Klages, because it was signed by Dewey (protagonist of The Green Glass Sea, and a cool girl if there ever was one). I still have to go through my other postcards, and add other titles to my to read list. You know, in case I run out of books.
