Thursday’s relative quiet was followed by a much  busier Friday, with aisles  buzzing, lines snaking too far to find the end. Fairgoers stood patiently, waiting to meet the author and get that coveted signature on the title page of the give-away galley. Over at Random House, mid-morning, I spotted a bookseller; I duti-fully copied the informa-tion from his badge (Harvey Finkel, Clinton Bookshop, Clinton, N.J.), before I asked him: “So what books have you seen that you’re really excited about?”“I’m just on line for Carl Hiaasen,” he said, and not much else. And sure enough, looking up and down and around, I saw that Hiaasen line. And the author himself, handsome,  blue-eyed, beautifully if casually dressed, was standing with Paul Bogaards, Knopf’s publicity director, at the signing table, waiting for the sign-ing (of Hiaasen’s YA debut,
Skink—No Surrender 
) to officially begin.Bogaards, a reliable source of what’s big, hot, or in demand, told me, “The tension of the show is informed by the quality of the publisher’s list,” and alerted me to
 Love Me Back
  by Merritt Tierce, which he called “tender and flinty”; he added that the new James Ellroy,
 Perfidia
, which starts on December 6, 1941, is “the book.” Back on the floor, Richard Howorth, owner of Square Books in Oxford, Miss., was touting Trinity University Press’s list and the  books from Barbara Rice: “They have a fabu-lous list. They’re publishing Rebecca Solnit (
 Encyclopedia of Trouble and Spaciousness
) and Peter Turchi (
 A  Muse and a Maze
).“It looks like it’s going to be an indie fall to me, a diver-sity of books,” said Chuck Robinson, owner of Village Books in Bellingham, Wash. “One big book doesn’t do it for me—unless it’s from Hachette,” he said wryly.“These are the things we’re most interested in,” said Paul Yamazaki, buyer for City Light Books in San Francisco, who came to BEA with a half-page sin-gle-spaced-typed list of  books after making a first run through publishers’ catalogues. He singled out a couple of titles from the list:
The Moor’s Account
 by The book industry’s largest event will likely add a fourth day in 2015. In a letter sent to exhibitors, Brien McDonald, director of strategic accounts for BookExpo America, noti-fied publishers and other exhibitors that starting next year, companies can choose to stay in the “trade” area of BEA, which will run May 28–30, or be in  both the trade show and consumer-oriented BookCon event, which will run May 30–31. By late Friday afternoon, BookCon executives were expecting close to 10,000 readers to attend the new 2014 event that launched today. McDonald said that the change in schedule was due to “enthusiastic con-sumer response” to the launch of BookCon. Although the show has  been three days for a num- ber of years (with a one-year exception when it ran for two days), the event had run for four days, usu-ally over the Memorial Day weekend, for a long period. A BEA spokesperson said while a final determi-nation will be made once it gets feedback from its cus-tomers, “we will begin the planning process with the assumption that we will expand.”The addition of Sunday to what has been a Thursday–Saturday trade show means that Reed Exhibitions, parent com-pany of BEA and ReedPop, the Reed unit that is orga-nizing BookCon, is speed-ing up the booth selection process, which will take place June 11–12. By June 10, Reed wants exhibitors to determine if they want a BEA-only or BEA/BookCon  booth. The selection pro-cess, McDonald wrote, will  begin at 9 a.m. Eastern Daylight Time on June 11. Upon learning that BEA/BookCon will run from Thursday to Sunday, a pub-licist said, “My head is going to explode.”
