Follow Friday--Book Conventions


Gain new followers and make new friends with the Book Blogger Feature & Follow! If this is your first time here, welcome! You are about to make some new friends and gain new followers -- but you have to know -- the point of this hop is to follow other bloggers also. I follow you, you follow me.


The Feature & Follow is hosted by TWO hosts, Parajunkee of Parajunkee's View and Alison of Alison Can Read. Each host will have their own Feature Blog and this way it'll allow us to show off more new blogs! 

How does this work? First you leave your name here on this post, (using the linky tools -- keep scrolling!) then you create a post on your own blog that links back to this post (easiest way is to just grab the code under the #FF picture and put it in your post) and then you visit as many blogs as you can and tell them "hi" in their comments (on the post that has the #FF image). You follow them, they follow you. Win. Win. Just make sure to follow back if someone follows you!


Q: 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?


Probably the BEA. It's the only one I know much about. I always hear others talking about it and it sounds like SO much fun! I'd love to go to New York and be part of it. We're talking hundreds--probably thousands--of people who all come together just to share their bookish tendencies. AWESOME! We don't have anything like that anywhere near me. Wish I lived closer so I could attend. Can't wait to hear from those that do, though! :D

How about you? Which convention would you attend if you could?

  3. BEA is one I'd love to attend, but admit I would probably feel very overwhelmed. Maybe one day.

  5. I'd love to go to BEA too! But NYC scares me, I know it's probably sill all things considered since I've gone to RT by myself but something about NYC is just so intimidating!

    Here's my Follow Friday

    Have a GREAT weekend!

    1. Yeah it is kind of intimidating. I have a cousin who lives there, though. If I ever get around to going, I can rely on her to protect me and show me the ropes. :D

  6. I'd love BEA too, but it's a cross-Atlantic flight for me so it won't happen this year, that's for sure.

    I'm an old follower, wishing you a wonderful weekend. Here's my FF post for this week.

  7. Any of them would be amazing to go to, but I don't have the budget to take a plane from Belgium to the USA. =(

  15. I'm in the UK, so I wish it were all closer too :) If I could go to any one I'd choose BEA because it's in New York, but of course I'd have to save up a lot first :)

  19. I'd love to go to BEA, too! Sounds like a book lover's dream come true, lol. I am shy in person, so I'd have to gear myself up for it.

  22. I had never heard of a reader convention. I'll have to chack those out.

    Dropping by from A to Z. This is my first year participating and I am having a blast.
