Today, Crazy-for-Books.com asks us "Are you going to Book Expo America (BEA) and/or the Book Blogger Convention (BBC) this year?"
Unfortunately, not. I live on the opposite side of the country, and it would cost at least $1000 for me to make the trip, so there's simply no way. I wish they would move BEA & BBC around each year like other conferences... Those of us on the West Coast are simply out of luck.
Have fun in NYC, though, all of you who are lucky enough to attend.
Here's my question for y'all: What book did you read yesterday while waiting for Blogger to come back online!?" (AND did your post from yesterday get totally wiped out, as mine did?)
And hey, on an entirely different note: Don't forget to drop by on Sunday for our brand new weekly Poem In Your Post Blog Hop! Participating's a breeze: Just click here for the scoop.
See you then,
p.s. Ideas for Sunday...
- It's Get Caught Reading Month, so post a poem that got you hooked on poetry, then link it here so we can enjoy it too! (Can you say A.A. Milne or Shel Silverstein or Dr. Seuss? Or perhaps a poem from your high school years would suit you best right now...)
- It's also Creative Beginnings Month, so post a poem that inspires you to create, then link it here.
Your own work or someone else's (with appropriate crediting, of course) - either will do just fine:
It's all about sharing the joy and insight of poems, and the more diverse, the better!
