Book Riot Live! is tomorrow! Between midterms, Halloween (yes, I take that holiday seriously) and work, I hadn’t done much to countdown to the event. Now that I’ve finally made it to New York, I want to use some of my down time for a by-the-numbers review of my trip so far.

I doesn’t get any geekier than this.

Bookish T-shirts packed to wear throughout the weekend.

966

Miles I traveled from my home in St. Louis to the convention in New York City.

54

Pages of the Welcome to Night Vale novel I read during my two-hour flight.

125

Number of times I listened to the “Reynolds Pamphlet” during my two-hour flight. This number directly impacted the previous.

90

Size in square-feet of the hotel room I’m staying in. The name of the place is POD 51 and is pretty nice considering how cheap it was (… relatively). I do have to use a shared bathroom, but everything is so clean and quiet, that it’s hardly a sacrifice.

Ain’t it cute?

The number of books I purchased at BOOKOFF, a used bookstore I spotted when stuck in traffic while riding the hotel shuttle (next time, I’ll just walk): Life After Life, by Kate Atkinson, and Everything I Never Told You, by Celeste Ng. I bought them for the Harry Potter Alliance‘s Apparating Library because I’m too stingy to give away my own books.

Times I’ve been to New York. Along with all the Book Riot Live! activities, I hope to also have the chance to see Times Square, Richard Rodgers Theatre (because the Hamilton musical has officially taken over my life) and Mood Fabrics.

Traveling companions. Next time I come, I’m bringing a friend. =(

 

I’m so geeked. I can’t wait for tomorrow and to share more about the panels, vendors and other attendees. Until then, good night! I’ve got few a bookish letters to write.
