Excited About Armchair BEA (Book Expo America)

which doesn’t even begin until a month from today! But by then I’ll be out of school and able to read (gasp!) and blog (gasp!) and cycle (gasp!) almost full time.
The schedule is listed here on the site, which I’ll briefly summarize here:
  • Monday, June 4: Introductions where participants answer five questions, provided by the Armchair BEA committee, and visit one another’s blogs.
  • Tuesday, June 5: Giveaways from bloggers, publishers, authors, etc.
  • Wednesday, June 6: Networking…in real life and how to become more involved with your book community.
  • Thursday, June 7: Beyond the Blog in terms of writing even deeper.
  • Friday, June 8: The Future of Book Blogging
Participant registration opens Monday, May 7, so be sure to visit Armchair BEA to sign up if you plan on participating this year.

I’ve already signed up to be a part of the commenting committee. Perhaps some year I’ll be able to participate in the real deal.

  1. Caveat: I'm not fussing about you. But it would be so helpful if all of us remember to be clear about what letters stand for when we're using acronymns. I had to really prowl even the BEA site before I found the name written out. It's in the header there, but the header's unreadale for me, with its low contrast between background and text.

    Wonderful to see your excitement – obviously, this is just your cup of tea!

  2. Yeah, well you have wonderful things going on in your little boat! Wish I could catch a glimpse of some of the Dicken's 200th birthday celebrations, myself.

  3. If you ever go to the real deal, I'll room with you. I keep putting off going because I'm not that interested in New York City and crowds, but it would probably help to have friends around.

  4. Oh, now there's an idea! Let's go, you and Les and me!!! But, we might have to wait until I retire, or at least until I've saved enough sick days. Why must they have it when I'm teaching?!

  5. I'll be sorry to miss the Armchair BEA this year. I'm getting ready for my business trip to Europe and won't have any time for it…hopefully next year!
