Want to Go to the BEA but can’t? The Armchair BEA Can Help – Albeit Vicariously May 25th - 28th




Here you can join in the fun:

This is a site where book bloggers who are not attending the BEA can join activities and get updates. (Badge links to the site that is hosting this event.)

In case you have not heard of the BEA (Book Expo America) - Here is the BEA site for more information on the event.


“Armchair Event” info via the host site:

Welcome to the nerve center of Armchair BEA! If you're a book blogger who can't attend Book Expo America and the Book Blogger Convention in New York this May (May 25-28), you don't have to miss all the fun - this virtual convention is the place to be! Watch this space for all the news about daily blogging themes, discussions, giveaways and more!

We'll be using the hashtag #ArmchairBEA on Twitter, so watch for that - and please be sure to bookmark this site or subscribe to our feed, so you don't miss any important updates!

The Schedule for the Week of Arm Chair BEA:

Blodeudd -
I hoped this would help my feeling left out and thought I would share.
I am going to make it a personal goal to go to the BEA next year.

If you visit the US? You will some day! I want to visit Finland. :)
