Armchair BEA 2013

I'd love to one day be able to attend the actual BEA in New York, but chances of that happening soon are slim. For us in internet cyberspace left behind, Armchair BEA Central has done the awesome job of coordinating an event for everyone on their sites and such to participate anyway.

This is the first year I'll be participating and I'm pretty excited. It's been awhile since I've participated in a week long event.

From their website:

One thing that we have changed for this year is we have added multiple topics for each day to discuss:  one that is topic-based and one that is genre-based.  This will provide participants an opportunity to chat specifically about the topic at hand or share something generally about the selected daily genre (i.e., list of favorites, books you would recommend, a piece that changed your life, a recurring re-read, etc.).  In essence, we will be providing interactions regarding blogging and reading -- the best of both worlds!  

As in previous years, you will have the opportunity to link up your personal posts and reactions for each topic so other participants can stop by and join in the conversation.  In addition, we will also be adding a NEW opportunity for participants to link up to genre-specific lists to assist in networking with like-minded bloggers.

In addition to the daily topics, we will also be featuring special guest posts, photos and videos from on-site, featured giveaways, twitter parties, and so much more.  Be sure to check back here often to stay up-to-date on all the upcoming and ongoing news in the weeks to come!

They also are doing an Instagram BEA Challenge I'll be participating in:

They are also doing some sort of Twitter Party schedule but not sure how that's going to work yet.

Are you also going to be joining? If so link your posts to me so I can comment. Hope you all enjoy!
