Intrepid B&N.Commers Liz Scheier (not pictured at left) and Andrew Delamarter (definitely not pictured at left!) are soaking up the atmosphere at the Romantic Times Booklovers Convention in Columbus, OH.


On day one of the trip, they hobnobbed with romance celebrities, stuffed themselves with good food, and talked with all and sundry about ebooks and digital initiatives and the hottest upcoming romances.


Liz got to watch the world's best literary smackdown between superstars Heather Graham and Barry Eisler; let us just say that rum and a tape measure were involved, and leave it at that.


Will Liz manage to get her picture taken with the parade of shirtless male cover models? Will Andrew celebrate his birthday in style with all his adoring fans? Will either of them make it through a night dancing at the Faerie Ball without acquiring a) glittery wings b) a tiara c) cirrhosis?


Stay tuned!

Ok so who is pictured left?
