Announcing Armchair BEA 2012!

5:50 PM The1stdaughter 14 Comments

We're coming back!

Last year we had an astounding number of participants, over 500 total! For 2012 we'd love to add to that and include even more book bloggers, publishers, authors, booksellers and others. This year we're planning an event that will include some of the following:

An Introduction Day 
Publisher, Book Blogger & Author Guest Posts 
Networking 
Giveaways 
An "Ask the Experts" Day 
On-site Reporting from BEA 
Twitter Parties

Our committee is hard at work determining the exact agenda for the week, but our overall theme will focus on incorporating the new and the old. With the book blogging community filled with both new and veteran book bloggers we want to take some time to learn from one another and also enjoy a week celebrating the books we love. There's much much more to come! So please stay tuned! Remember to subscribe to our RSS feed and our Twitter account to keep up to date and in the know!

In preparation for the big event and to encourage the inclusion of everyone who would love to be involved we decided to start spreading the word a bit early and we'd love if you would help us with this. Sign-ups to participate are yet to come, but we'd love if those of you who participated last year or that plan to this year would help spreading the word! Feel free to grab one of the buttons in the left side bar! We'd love to see posts, tweets, Facebook posts, and any other form of social media you prefer.

Thank you again for all of your support! We're looking forward to another spectacular event and hope you are as well!

  2. Very excited! I was just wondering the other day if ABEA was going to happen again. I can't make it to BEA yet again, but I loved participating last years so it's a given that I will this year. Can't wait to see what additions will be made.

  3. I enjoyed it last year. I love to hear what is going on, at the side lines what hot books they are talking about. I got some great books because I learned from y'all what to look out for. I hope you will let us know when. Thanks, Susan
