New York Comic Con 2014 - Thoughts and Giveaway 3

Happy Boxing Day to those who celebrate or Happy Day After Christmas or Happy Friday! 

Since you've all been very good readers in 2014 we have one more big giveaway for you. These are lovely books and items that we picked up (mostly) at New York Comic Con. The literary 'track' at NYCC features books for all ages so if you are a teenager or middle schooler you'll find books, comics, and much more that will appeal to you. Make sure to pay attention to the schedule so you know who is where when. Better - prepare ahead of time. Much of the information is on the NYCC site will ahead of the Con. Publishers generally post schedules of signings and have printed information about their signing schedule for the Con. Wander around and you'll find books available for sale or for free. Many of the sale books have been signed by the authors.

The lines can be long sometimes but are well handled. I've found that 99.99% of the time the people on line with you are super to chat with while waiting. The authors are extremely nice. I really can't emphasize how much fun it is to meet a favorite author! But you already know that.

Younger kids will also love NYCC especially on kid's day which is traditionally the final day of NYCC each year (on a Sunday). But every day at NYCC is fun for all ages of fans!
