Armchair BEA: Wrap-Up, Thank You and Why I Loved Armchair BEA

Saturday, May 29, 2010


And what a fun week it was! Armchair BEA was a huge success to me! I can particularly attest to that by saying that I didn't do much work at all this week - at least for the first four days. By Friday, I was slightly panicky, and because of my desire to end the week with a feel-good sentiment, I managed to work seriously yesterday. With my Tweetdeck tuned to #BookBloggerCon.

If you haven't checked out my posts yet, here are the links.

Thanks to the wonderful organizers - Tif, Emily, Michelle, Florinda, and Danielle - for having set up this excellent event, that
  • Gave me a chance to be a part of BEA and BBC from my comfy chair.
  • Introduced me to a whole new set of truly wonderful bloggers, some who I have never come across before, and can't believe I missed them for so long!
  • Spread a lot of blogger love.
  • Gave us a chance to connect more as friends than bloggers during the Twitter party on Thursday.
  • Gave me an excuse not to work this week.
  • Gave me an excuse not to write reviews this week.
  • Won me 9 wonderful books, without even going to BEA.
  • Introduced me to a ten-year old blogger!

*Applause, Applause*

You are most heartily welcome! This week certainly exceeded my expectations, and I cannot wait to start planning for next year! "See" you there!

Love the 'clapping hands' picture. Perfect.

I did a wrap-up post too.

I wish I would have done this after reading all of your posts this week. Glad you had such a good time!

I wasn't able to go to BEA and BBC so I was really looking forward to Armchair BEA. Then I discovered I was too busy to even do that. So I'm going to spend my extra day off catching up on all the fun you all had!

I have to say I am envious regarding the BEA...still being a semi newbie in this world of book blogging, I didn't know enough about it or where to sign up. Hoping next time, I will particpate. Note to self and other bloggers...please remind me and lead me in the right direction lol.
