|More about Power Readers here|
On Saturday, June 1st, BEA opens up to the public with its super special Power Reader ticket things, and we will be there! *HAPPY DANCES* Since we didn't register as bloggers, we'll only be there the one day, BUT THAT ONE DAY IS GOING TO BE FILLED WITH AWESOME.
The Power Readers thing is really cool, by the way, because it's open to normal readers. You don't have to be a blogger or anything related to the industry. You just have to be an enthusiastic reader, which I think we more than qualify for. :D
I am so excited! I spend every book conference/convention hunched over my laptop, jealously scrolling through twitter, where every blogger and author I follow is excitedly tweeting about all the fun they're having. But this time, I will be one of those bloggers making everyone else jealous!
THIS IS GOING TO BE WONDERFUL.
Megan and I have never been to BEA or any book conference ever before, so this is going to be a new experience for us. Assuming all goes well, we hope to go to more of them in the future, because BOOOOOKS.
So yeah, we're pretty excited. Even though we only live about an hour outside of NYC, we weren't really planning on going to BEA because money and school and transportation and the whole we're-only-sixteen thing. It just didn't seem like we'd be able to make it happen. But then our wonderful librarian told us about the Power Readers option, and it sounded perfect. It's only one day, so it won't be the whole epic experience that lasts a few days, but I think it's a good way to (hopefully) ease our way into attending book conferences more often.
IT'S GOING TO BE SO MUCH FUN.
Megan and I are bringing along our friend Katherine, my sister Lauren, and Megan's mom. (Okay, so Megan's mom is bring all of us along. Whatever.) (By the way, THANK YOU MEGAN'S MOM FOR BEING THE BEST EVER OMG.) It's basically going to be a big Girl's Night Out. Except not at night, and with more books and nerdiness.
I CAN'T WAIT.
We didn't do a very good job with the planning ahead thing and we only got the tickets last night, so I feel sort of out of the loop. Are any of you guys going to BEA? If so, let us know so we can possibly meet or something?
I AM SO EXCITED.
