“Today I walked by Pele andScott Turow. Where else couldyou do that?” said AllisonHill, president/COO of Vro-man’s Bookstore in Pasa-dena, Calif. Despite somechanges in the schedulingand duration of this year’sBookExpo, Hill’s commentssummarized that industrymembers still love BEA forwhat it’s traditionally beenabout—bringing booksell-ers face-to-face with editors,celebrities, and big-ticketauthors.Overall, people thoughttraffic on Wednesday wasstrong. And booksellers,despite some grumbling,embraced the shift to mid-week. Workman’s grouppublisher, Bob Miller, calledthe mood “rocking,” noting,“It feels busier and moreenergetic than it has in thepast five to six years.” WillWeisser, v-p, associate pub-lisher, marketing directorof Portfolio/Sentinel, said,“People seem happier aboutthe midweek. It’s certainlymore convenient for NewYork publishers.” And bothMiller and Weisser notedthat attendees seemed lessfocused on the economythis year.Roger Cooper, publisherof Vanguard Press, was happywith the greater focus thisyear on digital: “People aretalking about e-books anddifferent platforms, morethan just what’s the hot new book.” Cooper elaboratedthat it’s been exciting to seepeople on the show floor,tech entrepreneurs andothers in the digital space,interested in the contentthe industry creates and thevariety of ways it can, and will, be used.Penguin’s Susan PetersenKennedy said she was happywith the turnout and thatthere was a good mix of  booksellers and media atthis year’s show. Harlequin’sAmy Jones added that shethinks the move to midweekhas allowed more librariansto come to the show: “themood is much more positiveeven than last year.”Of course, booksellersweren’t without complaint.Some were frustrated by thelack of the galleys. Otherscomplained about having toleave their stores on nightsdedicated to in-store events—as one marketing managernoted, Monday, Tuesday, andWednesday nights are pop-ular nights for in-store authorevents. And still others, saidone sales rep, were disap-pointed with the switch tomidweek, since they could nolonger make a long weekendout of their BEA trip.Regardless of the inevita- ble complaints, the heart of BEA, which allows booksell-ers to come together, is asimportant as ever. As Millernoted, with more and morepressure on smaller retail-ers as the e-book businessgrows, BEA allows book-sellers to share ideas andcommiserate. “The more bookselling is under siege,”he said, “the more booksell-ers want to connect andprosper.”
