(finally) Hopping !!!!!

Blogger wasn't cooperating this morning, so I was crossing my fingers ..... and now, I can post again!   And -- can join in the Book Blogger Hop!   Hosted by Jennifer over at Crazy for Books, the Hop is a great way to spend time over the weekend visiting blogs, meeting bloggers, and discovering new things.  I haven't Hopped for a while, and even though I'm working this weekend, I'm going to try to get around on the Hop.

This week's question is: Are you going to Book Expo America (BEA) and/or the Book Blogger Convention (BBC) this year?

Sadly, no.   I would have dearly loved to go to BEA, but the timing didn't work for me -- as I just spent a chunk of my vacation (and my savings) on a trip to Italy.   Totally worth it.   But, I would love to go to BEA next year.    And, no BBC for me, either.    I actually find going to BBC a bit intimidating, because although I've been blogging for a bit over a year now, I still feel like I'm nowhere near the level other bloggers are.   But, I like the idea of BBC, so maybe I'll try to make it.

That being said .... even though I enjoyed my Italy trip, I am completely envious of those of you who get to go to BEA!!!!     Happy Hopping, everyone!!!

I didn't even know about the BBC and BEA. Dah for me.

Sadly I can't go either - I'm with you on the intimidation factor too. Enjoy the weekend!

I haven't seen anyone's blog where they are actually going to BEA!

I'm not going either and I'm super jealous of all the people who are going. It's interesting because I thought everyone was going and I felt left out but I haven't come across a yes answer yet.
