Tips to Survive Book Con

Hello Readers,

For those new to book con. This guide will help you along the way. Very nice picture I found on Google. This will be my third year going to book con. For those new to it. It’s a book convention in NYC. No worries tickets don’t sell out. You can get them anytime and even at the door. Hope this guide will help you out.

  1. Bags:

You allow to have bags in the convention center. Allow only bookbags, totes, fanny packs, purses.

Can have small wheel bags but must be check in luggage area. Price is 3 bucks a day

2. Food:

Can bring in snacks and water in bag. You will be waiting in long lines so have food in bag will help. Drink lots of water.

Convention center has a food court and starbucks. Be warn it will be so packed and pricey there.

You can also leave the convention anytime to get food and come back as long as you have badge on you.

3. ARCS (Advance Reader Copies) and Giveaways:

When you first come into book con, you get a book with a map and a tote bag.

Read the booklet good on most of giveaways and booths numbers. There be books giving out different times of day that are not announced in booklet.

4. Money:

Bring cash for emergency and a card also. Not every booth will take cards.

5. Autographs:

If you do autograph lines, please read carefully before getting tickets to it.

Some autographs require you to buy the book to see the author. Plus there could be limits on how many books you get sign.

6. Clothes:

Wear something comfortable. Sneakers are a girl’s best friend. You be standing around and waiting in long lines all day.

If you wish to dress up as your favorite character, you can do that also

I think I cover everything just about. Their other people who been to book con before. If you need help with anything just feel free to ask the people who work there. There signs everywhere and maps. Please be respectful to others, no pushing and shoving to get a book. If you don’t get an book, it be fine. The book will be release soon. You there to make new book friends, discover new books and have fun. Be nice to one and other and help each other out.

New York Comic Con

I was lucky to head to NYCC Thursday, then was lucky enough to score free tickets for Sunday as well. Sorry it took so long posting an update. When I got home Sunday was very sick with fever and still fighting off an cold and bad cough. Well I had such an blast at comic con. I was like in nerd heaven with so many fandom all over the place. I am a big gamer, anime, tv show, reader nerd over here. I like a bit of everything and test the waters out. As you can tell with some of my anime posts on here. Since I count manga as books as well. Thursday meet up with some friends and we got down to business and I mean book business. We wanted this one book Renegades everyone dying to get hands one. Lucky was number one in line for that. 22195375_10210604841623844_3529192876226728524_n

Then while I was busy playing at NYCC, I made my friend back at home race over to hot topic to grab me Sailor V NYCC edition funko pop. Thought they were gonna be sold out, boy was I wrong, hardly no one wanted my Sailor V. So Sad! Own my friends a huge pizza party and lots of love for that.

22279500_10210602669409540_3837537535752970504_n

Mostly explore and took some pictures Thursday for fun and got tons of free books. Brought an new Sailor Moon shirt. You never to old to watch anime and still love Sailor Moon. Will leave you off with some pictures from Thursday Comic con and book haul..

 

 

Then let’s get to Sunday fun day. Again meet up with my booknerd friends. This time I had on my doctor who dress. Sorry just putting both days in one long post. Still not really over this head cold yet so bare with me. Sunday thought I would come home with about two books I only wanted, boy was I wrong. Had a nice mini book haul again and everyone love my dress. Mostly hang around the books section b/c everything was packed with people, more then Thursday. Very long day and was starting to get sick. Took not to many pictures this time. So here is Sunday pictures and fun.

 

 

This would be easy doing on video but hate the sound of my voice. After i got home was fever sick and still am. Took me a while to pick up a book again and start reading. Being drugs and half sleeping this week did not help me with reading much. Here is what me and Bella are reading next. We are reading Ship of the Dead the last Magnus Chase book of Rick Riordan. Never review any of his books on here before and have no idea how to start that since he has over 12 books and about 3 or 4 different series to keep track of. So here is Bella with the book. Enjoy and Happy Reading!

Wine & Dine Event In NYC

21430193_10210430783632503_2448250148123521964_n

So on Saturday I had a great time at a signing event on a rooftop. It was a first for me. Before the event got to walk around to the book stores with Justin and Laura. First off we hit book off an great used book store. Plus they have dvds, manga and other stuff used. Then off to the Strand another used and new bookstore. Which they had tons of new releases out already for this month. They always have books out early. Then went to midtown comics first time ever. I found my rare doctor who pop. Which I can’t get until. My friend Justin was nice and me it. Just have to wait until Christmas to get it. 21371144_10210430227218593_3107149486537284272_n

So after Doctor Who fun we head to the rooftop bar in NYC. Gonna said if it were not have been for Laura we would have been so lost. We got meet some new book friends. The event was very nice. Our main goal was to see C.J Redwine. There were other authors there that I had no clue about. But we did talk and mingle with people and got to check out some new reads. So it was awesome CJ Redwine knows me from her facebook. She was so chill and lay back author. You know authors are just like us. Gonna say CJ Redwine won the shake it off battle that. If you ever met her she a Taylor Swift fan. Will leave you off on some of the fun pictures I took and the books I got sign and book haul. Happy Reading!
