Meet the Publishers

Conference seems like an age ago, especially in light of the announcement of our long list last weekend which has occupied so much of our time. However, my mind keeps returning to all the beautiful new books I found at conference, the ones I bought home and sit upon my shelves waiting for me to pick them up and read them and all the fabulously knowledgeable publisher representatives that were able to share so much about the books they brought along with them.

I managed to snap a few pictures, which was no mean feat whilst filling my arms with all the wonderful samples of books that were on offer to take away. The pictures, more then anything, have served as a reminder of all the books I have to add to both my personal and school library wish lists. Take a look and see if you can spot some of my favourite books and those of the members of our book group...
