At BEA, it is not uncommon to see people standing in the back of signing line, drooling over the title that they hope to soon have in their hot little hands. Their book lust is especially strong because they know they will have that book in their hands months before it will show up anywhere else, and they have the special privilege of reading it before anyone else.

If you’re one of the BEA attendees, what one book has you drooling this week? Have you gotten it yet? Or did you miss your chance? If you’re following along at home, which book are you lusting over from afar? What would you do to get your hands on a copy?

Tell us what you’re thinking. You’ve got the floor.
