Aftermath of BEA

Before I could even get myself on the plane I had to pick up my glasses.
Yes!  My Gucci's lost a nose pad and I needed them for this trip.
I flew into Newark, NJ.  The guy sitting next to me was so much fun.  We watched Return of the King (3rd Lord of the Rings) on his laptop and made witty comments about the movie.  LOL!  Then we took the 15 minute for 15 dollar bus ride to Time Square.

My first picture in NYC and look at it!  Truly wonderful!
The Mad Scientist doesn't think it would be considered a true trip to NYC without getting a photo of the icon so many people have looked for as they venture to a whole new life.  However, this time in NYC I opted not to visit her and all her beauty with her own Island.
Chinatown.  A small area after my heart.  So much good food and a Buddhist temple to visit. However, like any good part there is a bad part or in this mind a truly colorful rooftop melody that is to be had going over the Manhattan Bridge towards Brooklyn.
Here is another look from the Manhattan Bridge at another angle.  Brooklyn Bridge, the finical district and, of course, the ever so fun FDR express way.  That might or might not be a bit of sarcasm.  LOL!
I just love how this picture turned out.  I didn't have my phone out to take pictures until I looked up and seen the reflection just looking back at me.  I just had to get the skyscraper sharing what it sees.  (Even if the Kia add happened to be in the way.  Bugger!)
Some oh so yummy Thai food that I found on 51st!  
It was almost like being back at my second home!

New York Public Library.  It is so beautiful.  I only regret not taking the time to go inside.  Next time.  I love NYC so I know I'll be back.... again.  I always seem to return.

Harry Potter Expo @ the Discovery Center.
Viktor Krum's Yule Ball attire and Hermione's beautiful gown!!

Here are a few books the Mad Scientist picked up while wondering around BEA.
I'm not being extreme when I say a few.  I came home with over 50 books.  I just stopped counting.  That number does not even include the audio books I stumbled upon.

Here was just a small peak into my week in NYC.  I did so much more an seen so much more.   I didn't find the over all blogger to blogger friendship that I thought I would find.  It seemed everyone was more on a mission for free books.  I just roamed around by myself trying to get people talking in lines.  However, I found some random people in the city and had a wonderful night with them.

Overall, not a horrid experience and not the best.
NYC itself made up for everything between!


  1. Hi there, nice to know you had such a great time in NY and you are still alive! Lovely picks, I am green of envy!

  2. I wish I had gone. I'm so jealous. Especially of LEGEND! *dies*

    Glad you enjoyed NYC! I hope you get to go again. I love NYC <3

  3. I'm glad that you at least had a decent time at BEA, and that NY, in general, made up for it all! I am so jealous that you went but hey, if I ever see you in future years I'll be sure to stop by and say hi!

    (Oh and your lucky with the guy on the plane. I never sit by anyone exciting or that even talks and whenever I sit next to a guy they just take up all the leg room and usually sleep. Though I just usually read so it's not overall a bad thing:)

  4. FAB
    And as always I envy your kick a$$ hair!

  5. Beautiful pictures!!! I'm so glad you had such an amazing time. I want to go to BEA someday! Maybe next year? It just sounds like a book lovers paradise. :)

  6. Awesome pics! Glad you had a good time!

  7. I am jealous! What FUN! I definitely need to at least ATTEMPT to go some time! Thank you for sharing all of your beautiful pictures! :)

  8. That first picture is so beautiful. I like the tone you used. I really wish I could have gone with you. I don't care what I have to do, next year we are so there...together! I know what you mean about the blogger to blogger thing. When I went to that signing, it was like I was the only book blogger. But then I spotted some in the back and they were so intent on keeping notes and didn't even seem to be enjoying the Q&A. Plus, I was like a pariah who didn't come with them so I stayed with Hubby in my seat and ignored them. *sigh* This is why I will concoct my plan to go with you next May. Besides, we need TWIN POWER for more fun!

  9. btw, totally not related...I talked to my stylist and she told me the moment I'm ready to tip my ends she will do it. *squee* Now, just to let Hubby know I'm rebelling with blue tips!
