Sunday Coffee – BEA?

IMG_9673I am on vacation! So no coffee pic this week, just one of me playing around with makeup, ha!

Okay, now that that’s out of the way, heh, I wanted to pose a question to my fellow book bloggers. Anyone out there attending BEA this year? I went in 2010 and had a blast meeting hundreds of fellow bloggers. I was scheduled to go back the next year when my flight was canceled due to weather (boo) and the airline couldn’t get me there until the very last afternoon (pointless). After that, I wasn’t really book blogging anymore.

Now, however, I’m book blogging, and I’m much, much closer to NYC. There’s a big part of me that really wants to go. At the same time, I’m not sure who else is going. The big allure of BEA for me is meeting fellow bloggers, rather than meeting authors or acquiring ARCs. There would be no point for me to go if no one I know is going, you know?

So tell me – are you going? Have you considered going? If BEA even relevant for book bloggers anymore? (Yeah, I’m that far out of the loop…)

    I’m probably going, but haven’t quite committed!

    I wish I was going, but alas new baby = no go. Hopefully next year.

    If I still lived in Boston, I would SO go with you! Don’t think I’ll make it from the west coast though 😦

    As for BEA, I’ll just be coming back from a wedding and am loath to ask for more time off during that week. I’d also heard mixed things from people about the event. It’s a bummer since NYC is so close for me!

    Not going, but I wanted to let you know how much I like the photo! Nice!

    I think enough bloggers still attend to make it worth your while. Granted, I *think* that is the case. I tend to tune out of the blogging world at that point in time because I know that it is an event I will almost never be able to attend.

    I’m going for my second year in a row. There were SO many bloggers last year! It was fantastic to see familiar faces.

    Thanks everyone for the response. I suppose it was less wondering if any bloggers at all attended, and more wondering if any of the bloggers I know will be attending, heh. 😀
