Follow Friday #40

[40! A somewhat odd even number, pardon the oxymoron. Half of 40 is twenty; half of twenty is 10. But then half of ten is 5. This is going nowhere -- I'm just moving on to the post now.]

Follow Friday is a weekly meme hosted by Alison Can Read and Parajunkee!

Q: We are about to see a lot of posts and tweets about reader conventions, RT, BEA, ALA, and many more starting soon. Which one would you love to attend? Where and why?

Um... honestly? I've never attended a conference. I rarely actually leave my home. I sit on my computer all day. (Well, not literally. I mean I listen to songs on youtube and read internet articles on writing, book reviews, and the news. I don't mean that I close the lid of my laptop and sit on it like a mother bird sits on her eggs. That would be weird.)

I would love to attend one, though! It would have to be up here in the Border states, though: Virginia, North Carolina, Maryland. And it would have to be next year, when I actually have my driver's license so I can get there.

I'd love to attend one eventually, though. Anyone have news on conferences (writer's or reader's, really) in this area? I know ALA is in Chicago and BEA in NYC, but how about around here?

I'd love some news! How about you? Where are you attending, and where is it? Have a blessed Friday and weekend! :)  


  1. I would just love to go to BEA in NYC - I love New York, and BEA seems so exciting, with both author panels and blogger panels! Alas, it's not in the cards for this year.

    I'm an old Bloglovin' follower, wishing you a fantastic weekend.

    Here's my FF post for this week.

  2. I would love to attend one too~ Border states, learning about those in history! Civil War test next week, so great way to study, read posts. LOL. ;) New GFC follower~
