ALA conference book list

These are pretty much the books I picked up at the conference, minus a few I've already put into John's piles. John got some awesome books, too (many graphic novels), but I didn't feel like typing them up. Several of these are gifts for people (shh!), but if you want to read one, particularly in the Fiction area, I'd be glad to send it on when I'm done (or if I'm not reading it, immediately), but only if you are REALLY going to read it. :) I'm pleased to have gotten a lot of non-ARCs this time!
