We are about to see a lot of posts & tweets about reader conventions, RT, BEA, ALA and many more are starting soon. Which one would you love to attend? Where and why?

Okey, so to be honest I have no idea what RT, BEA and ALA is but after reading several bloggers answers I am guessing it´s sort of a book conventrion? Can someone fill me in? lol
Since i´m not living in USA I never have the oportunity to go to those kinds of events. *tears falling* heh

Following back! I live in the US but did not know about these conventions before this FF. BEA is in NYC so it is probably one of the bigger ones - that's the one I know have my eye on because it is a mere 4 hour drive away. Maybe one day : )

Following back ;-) What an awesome blog name, by the way.

I don't know what all of them are except for BEA. Would love to go to that convention someday! All those books and authors and bloggers. Fun!

I'm only familiar with BEA, and it's the one I want to attend the most. But I live very far away.

I love your blog name!!! I only found out about the conventions once I started blogging and hope to go next year. Hopefully one day you'll get to go too :) Thanks for stopping by this week. Old follower.

ALA is supposed to only be for librarians, but there are always a lot of bloggers. BEA is the big one though. The idea of all of them is for publishers to promote their upcoming books by giving away ARCs.
Thanks for stopping by my FFF.

I didn't know about these before I started blogging. I live on the west coast so I am pretty far from some of these big ones. Not as far as you though, :-( Hope you can come over and go to one someday. Thanks for stopping by my FF. New follower :-)

Yeah, those are all book convetions of a sort! I do feel bad for all my international blogging buddies. Not too many author conventions happen overseas.

Here's my Follow Friday

Have a GREAT weekend!

Yup they are all book conventions
BEA and ALA are the two biggest one I believe. And it's dream for reader to attend any of the book conventions especially BEA =)

Following on to your comment over on my blog, I don't know if it will come to pass, but one of the cities bidding to host WorldCon in 2015 is Helsinki. I know that's in Finland and not Sweden, but it would definitely be closer for you than Orlando, Florida or Spokane, Washington.

I might be attending BEA (book expo america, a book convention where you get to meet other blogers, authors, and publishers) for the first time next year.

*crossing fingers*

Get with it! You should definitely look into the conventions. Although, it you're out of the USA, I'm not sure if you should make the trip! It's expensive for even those IN the USA :\

Sorry you live so far away. I still don't quite know what all of these are, I am still learning. New GFC follower, thanks for stopping by my blog!

hi sandra!
lol you think the conventions are cool and would like to attend but i would LOVE to go to sweden :)
thanks for stopping by! new follower~~


mariska said...

I really got the same problem.
I think I should save some money and in a few years I can go to such a convention. Only, that would mean that I can't buy any books any more. I really don't like that.

Thanks for your comment on my ff.

I'm only aware of BEA because it's closer to where I live and has tons of book events and author signing/ promotion.

Thanks for stopping by :)

~Jennifer~ said...

I didn't know what they were, either. I had an idea of ALA, but I looked them all up to be able to answer, lol. I'm sorry you don't have these kinds of events in your country! That really sucks. I've never been to one, though. One day, you could hop over here and go to one. We could go together! :)

Thanks for stopping by my blog! Following you back! :D

Unknown said...

I'd love to go to one too, but I'm in the UK- so I feel your pain!

The only one I was familiar with was BEA - I had to look up the others, too! But I'm excited to e a first-time attendee at BEA this year. I'm lucky that my brother lives in NYC; otherwise, I don't think I could have afforded the hotel costs to stay for 5 days!
