The fair is noticeably smaller this year. HarperCollins stand and Simon and Schuster's stand are both half the size of last year. Penguin and Random House were the same size. I didn't get close to the books in the first three, but we were very excited to see Anna Jarzab's ALL UNQUIET THINGS and Cristina Diaz Gonzalez's THE RED UMBRELLA at RH.
Faber and Faber didn't have any galleys out like they usually do, but they seemed to have quite a few copies of Barbara Kingsolver's THE LACUNA, so I hope to get a copy of that on Sunday.
My most exciting moment was getting a galley from Hodder and Stoughton of Jasper Fforde's SHADES OF GREY, the first book in an "exciting new series". YAY!
The funniest book I saw was at Chronicle: GLAMOURPUSS - THE ENCHANTING WORLD OF KITTY WIGS. Apparently, they even have a kitty wig website.
We then headed over to check out German children books in Hall 3.0. They had a huge display for the German version of THE HUNGER GAMES and I even saw the German version of Bernard Beckett's GENESIS. I'll have to take my camera tomorrow.
