I'm at my very first BEA in New York City this week! SQUEE!
Today is the BEA Bloggers Convention which, besides Jennifer Weiner and Jenny Lawson as the two speakers (cool!), also includes a variety of blog-related sessions and a chance to network with a ton of awesome bloggers.
Tuesday and Wednesday, I'll be running around the convention floor where, hopefully, I'll be visiting with publishers and publicists, authors and fellow bloggers. I put together a very ambitious schedule and know I probably won't make it to half of the things on that list. Still, I have a couple of authors--like Libba Bray, Melissa Marr, Julie Kagawa--that I really want to meet and (fingers crossed!) get their upcoming books.
We'll see. I don't plan on being one of those crazy, grabby bloggers that everyone talks about. I really just want to have a good time, find some cool books, and generally hang with people who love books as much as I do. (My friends call it Book Geek Paradise. I'm all over that!)
So, this week I won't be commenting like I usually do as I fully expect to face-plant into my pillow each night from book-euphoria-induced exhaustion. Still, I did plan ahead (a little bit, anyway) and schedule posts for this week--enjoy and happy reading!
And if you're at BEA, look me up! :)
