Book Blogger Hop

Time for the Blogger Hop from Crazy for Books

What a great idea! I love following readers blogs almost more than I like blogging myself. What a great way to get out there and meet new people who share the same interests as you.

This week’s question: Are you going to Book Expo America (BEA) and/or the Book Blogger Convention (BBC) this year?

Sadly no. I had actually been planning on going with my mom but with the move and the change in jobs I just didn't think it would be feasible this year. Plus, my husband and are leaving in June for a month and a half road trip so I would rather put my money towards that! I’m so jealous of everyone who is going and I can’t wait to see everyone’s pictures and hear all about it.

@Elizabeth - they're in NYC. BEA is from May 23rd-26th and the BBC is on the 27th.

Have a lovely weekend!

I'm quite jealous of everyone going as well. I figure it will be quiet and lonely around here till people get back :)

I'm always a fan of a road trip. :) BEA is something I would love to go to, but it's not going to happen this year.

Katie said...

Kat P - thanks for that :) Hope your weekend was enjoyable!

Alexis: true, not going to be a lot going on in the blogging world during that time....maybe I can actually catch up on reading :)

Lazy Girl - Thank you and Thank you!

Senora - Thanks, my husband had paid time off between writing the bar and starting at his firm so....why not right??? I'm pretty excited!

Jo - think you will go next year? I've always wanted to go too.

I wish I could go to BEA, but unfortunately school is not out until several weeks later. Maybe I will be able to go next year.

Perhaps you'd like to enter the giveaway this month for the new book Divergent. I'd love to have you stop by my blog. Let me know if you decide to follow; I always follow back.

Katie,
Roadtrip! Sounds so fun! Hope you have a great time. So far I haven't come across a single blog that has said yes they are going. Maybe we will all make it next year! Have a great time with your hubby!
