I’m sure many of you (especially those of you who aren’t able to go) are sick of hearing about BEA. So don’t worry, I’ll keep this post brief! If you aren’t a part of the blogging world, or are new, you may not know what BEA is.
BEA stands for Book Expo America and it is a conference held in New York City. This year’s dates are May 25-27. It’s a place where industry people, book sellers, librarians, and reviewers can get together for a few days and talk books! The Friday after BEA, we are having the first ever Book Blogger Con, which is directed at book bloggers and promises to be a very interesting experience! It’ll be nice to be able to have a day just to meet fellow bloggers and put faces to blogs and Twitter names.
I do have a rough plan for BEA, but almost everything is tentative. I’ll probably spend most of my time wandering the exhibit floor. Dawn over at She Is Too Fond of Books is collecting bloggers’ contact details to share them with the group. If you’re interested in connecting with people (including me!), make sure to fill out the form by tomorrow!
If you want to get in touch, please don’t hesitate to email or text me (I hate talking on the phone, though I’m not one to ignore it if it rings!) I can’t wait to meet everyone, and I think this will be a great experience!
(And if you aren’t going, and are wondering what will happen with my blog while I’m at BEA, rest assured that you won’t even notice that I’m gone! I have reviews scheduled to post every day.)
