After spending some time discussing the fact that Book Expo America is now just Book Expo (getting hipper? midlife crisis?), Gayle and Nicole discuss some of their finds from the Expo while trying to remember that BEA should probably now be BE. The focus is mostly on summer books, coming to a library or bookstore near you, post-haste! But there are a few titles looming further in the future.
