Sunday's Weekly Book Recap #20

This has been an extraordinary week of book acquisitions.  During the week I went to Library Journal's Day of Dialog, the Association of American Publishers Librarians Dinner, and Book Expo 2013 (a three day event).  I am compiling a list of the many, many books received at these events and reflecting on my conversations with all the authors I met.  Under the circumstances, this post is not my usual recap of books for the week.  Instead I am posting the highlights from Day of Dialog and the AAP dinner, along with books downloaded and borrowed from the library, which I am sharing on the following blogs:
