Some of my blogging friends and groups are gearing up towards this year’s Armchair BEA and since I missed out on it last year, I thought I’d give it a go when it came around again. That means there will be a slight change in the number and types of posts I will be doing at the end of May, which I hope will be quite exciting for me as a blogger, and interesting for you as a reader.
There’s plenty going on during those few days, and whilst I’d like to take part interactively with things like the twitter talks, because I live in the UK, I’m on a different time zone, and therefore unlikely to be able to take part. However I’ll take part in the blog posts at least.
Please check out the website to get more information, but in short, below is some details about what the Armchair BEA is about
Armchair BEA is the experience for book bloggers to participate in Book Expo America (BEA) from the comfort of their homes. This experience is created lovingly by book bloggers specifically for our peers who for whatever reason are not able to participate in the main conference in New York each year. We bring publishers, authors, and bloggers together in celebrating our love for all things literary by hosting celebrations such as sneak peeks, daily discussion topics, and sponsored giveaways.
What is Armchair BEA?
Book bloggers unable to attend the BEA Bloggers Conference or Book Expo America (BEA) in New York City, but would like to ‘meet’ other book bloggers and publishers to discuss books and book blogging can participate in this virtual event. Armchair BEA has been run by book bloggers on a volunteer basis since 2010, although giveaways are sponsored by authors and publishers.
When is Armchair BEA?
Armchair BEA runs simultaneously with BEA Bloggers Conference and Book Expo America. Armchair BEA 2014is scheduled for May 26-31.
