My ALA Schedule!

I cannot believe that in a week from now, I will be 1. In Chicago and 2. On my third and final day at ALA. I am so ridiculously excited. There are going to be so many amazing authors that I’ve followed on Twitter that will be signing and so many fantastic books. If you’re wondering where I’ll be or may want to stand in line (somewhat) together, here’s my schedule! A rough draft of it, I need to make some minor adjustments, like adding both numbers…

Priorities are in Bold. Things I’d really like to do are in Italics. Ideally, this would be in a colored spreadsheet, however, I can’t really do a screenshot on the computer without a ton of extra work. 😦 Which makes me very sad, but this isn’t bad!
