For the last few days, and well into this week I am sure, many of those who attended BEA are helping out those of us who couldn't make it with their reports on what they saw, over-heard, and learned. Thanks by the way. BEA always overlaps with the final days of school here in IL, and those are moments I don't want to miss, even for books.
Early Word ran this post with links to other reports on the "hottest books" from the conference. But what I found even more useful is how Early Word took what they heard at this year's event and tried to match it up with what they heard last year about books that ended up becoming THE BEST of 2011; or as they called it "Handicapping the Books of BEA."
