I'm off to see the wizard...I mean, I'm going to BEA

I'm off to NYC to experience BEA or Book Expo America for the first time! 

What is BEA?
It's a three day book and publishing extravaganza, where participants meet authors, publishers, other bloggers, attend panels and learn all about upcoming releases. Yes, that means free books! Maybe I'll have a completely different answer to this question after I've attended.

Last year, I wasn't blogging, and I'd never even heard of BEA. 
I feel incredibly excited and honored to be able to attend this year. 

I cannot wait to meet all of you who are going.
I already miss those of you who cannot attend.  

I also want to apologize for being slow to reply to comments and visit other blogs in the past few weeks! I'll be back at it soon. Planning for this trip has been time consuming, but a lot of fun!

If you've attended BEA before, what's your number one tip?
If you're going for the first time, what are you most looking forward to about it?
If you're not able to go, what's one thing you want to know about the event?

After BEA, the Summer Series Challenge begins on June 1. 
I hope you can join the fun!


  1. I'm so jealous, but have a GREAT time! I have exams which is why I can't attend, but hopefully next year! *fingers crossed* And all I really know is that there are a LOT of ARCs and that you get to meet a LOT of authors, so you're wonderfully lucky. I hope you have a fabulous time, Lauren! :)

  2. I didn't know you were going! I so wish I could go too. It sounds like so much fun and I hope you have a great time! :)

  3. AHHHHHHH! I am so excited and have been thinking about you all day Friendie!! Can't wait for updates. Bring back goodies!! ;)

  4. Ah, I saw your pedi-cab, looks so fun! HAVE LOTS OF FUN and you better recap ;)

  5. I hope you have had a marvelous time so far. And I hope you took lots of pictures because I plan to live vicariously through you!

  6. It was so great to meet you this week! I'm looking forward to reading more of your posts now that I can put a real life personality with your online personality!

  7. I hope you had a fantastic time, Lauren! I'm totally envious that you went, and I can't wait to see your BEA recap posts or something like that! :)

  8. This looks like a fun thing to do. I'll begin preparing aWizard101 dungeon now!
