Book Expo of America

I'm here in Washington attending the Book Expo of America--a massive book trade show that is so immense that it always gives one a sobering view of the amount of books that are being published constantly.

I met Tim Russert, Newt Gingrich, Randal Cuningham, Doug Williams, and Tracy Ulman yesterday--all of them here to promote books.

The setup is rather awkward here, there are exhibit halls on multi levels and I read in the Publisher's Marketplace that this has led to complaints from both exhibitors and attendees (I concur).

What strikes me so far, is that there doesn't appear to be anything that really is creating a buzz right now. We'll see.
