This Week's Question: 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?



I am attending ALA this summer in Chicago and I am over-the-moon excited about it! I cannot wait to go and am counting down the days. I will get to meet up with some old coworkers, connect with other librarians, authors and publishers. 

I would absolutely love to attend BEA one of these years. It is on my bucket list I guess you can say but it is not in the budget to attend it this year (and probably not next year either).  It seems what I have read about it from its website and what the other bloggers say, that it would be amazing to attend one of these days. :)

What about you--which of any would you attend? Are you attending ALA this year?

Happy Reading!

  2. I won't be attending ALA unfortunately. It was in my state last year, but that was before I got into blogging and before I even knew there were these kind conventions. I hope you have fun this year at ALA in Chicago! New GFC Follower :)

    1. ALA (including Midwinter and Annual) moves all over the place so I bet it will come near you again. If you get a chance, it is great to go. They do a Daily Exhibit pass too that makes it more affordable if it is near you.

      Thanks for following Cristal! Happy Reading!

  4. There is usually a meet up at ALA for YA bloggers. I will most likely be attending. It will probably be Friday after the exhibit hall closes. Hopefully you can make it. I like ALA much better than BEA, BEA is much too crazy for me, although there is a special place for librarians where they have snacks and beverages. It was a life-saver when I attended. Thanks for stopping by my FFF.

  5. Hello!! I found your blog through the feature and follow post. It is a really good idea to get new followers although I'm new to this blogging world :D
    I think I would choose to go to the bea because I have always wanted to go to New York :D I know pretty cliche but I have always had a dream of going there one day!
