Good morning! Yesterday was a pretty sweet day here in Central Minnesota…. it was warm (well 50 degrees makes me happy at this point) and looks to stay this way moving forward (*cartwheels* * back flip* *High fiving anyone and everyone*) AND when it starts to feel like spring…
I start to think about BEA (Book Expo America).
I have been able to go every year since 2010 and I have been amazed every year. If you are on the decision side of should I stay or should I go…. you should GO. And over the next 7 or 8 weeks… you are probably going to see me chat about BEA a lot here…. however, before you think “Sheila, this totally does not apply to me, I will not be attending and I really do not want to hear about something I am not taking part in…”
Oh but wait my friend….
Have you heard of Armchair BEA?
Armchair BEA is a way for those who will not be attending to get the feel of the event from their very own homes. Through this site you can participate with daily discussions, giveaways, and live videos and posts from the event itself. It will be like being there without the expense of the plane train or automobile to get there.
I a, super excited to be part of the On-Site Correspondents Team. *SQQQUUUEEEE* What that means is that myself as well as 3 other awesome bloggers will be the eyes and ears on site for those participating from home. We will take video of what we are seeing and doing. We will do interviews and give you as much BEA as you handle. I am SUPER excited to be a part of this team.
Registration will soon be open to sign up to be an Armchair BEA participant. I do hope you will all sign up and hang out with my virtually for a week at the end of May. I will keep you informed here when registration is open, in the mean time, please check out the site and grad the button I posted here for your side bar.
It’s going to be a good good time.
As far as books that came to my home this week… I am never short of reading material that’s for sure…
Hope your Sunday plans are something fun or relaxing or both 😀 I will be working on our book club read this afternoon and possibly going to the movie Noah with my hubby.
