Follow Friday #15

It's time once again for the Feature and Follow Blog Hop hosted by Parajunkee's View and Alison Can Read The Feature and Follow Blog Hop is an excellent chance to connect with other bloggers and answering questions about our favorite books. Here's this week's question:

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

Since I live in Australia I don't have the option or luxury to go to any of these, but boy wish I did. I need to schedule a trip to the US around one of these events just so that I can experience it even just once.
If I had a choice I would probably choose BEA as it seems to be the most popular and biggest one around. I just think it would be quite the experience to see not just other bloggers, but authors as well. We don't have these sort of conventions in Australia, and so it's be one of my dream things to do one of these days.

Happy Friday.


  1. Oh bummer. Doesn't Australia have some kind of convention? I heard Rachel Vincent went there earlier this year, like a month ago for some sort of conference.

    1. I think we have a Romance Readers convention, and I believe that's what she was here for. It's expensive though. But that's about all.

  2. We don't have conventions here in the Philippines. either. :l

      We used to have one here I heard, but they closed it.. I don't know why. Not enough interest or participation at the time maybe. :(

      Thanks. It cost me enough, but the end result we were quite happy with.

  3. Great answer! : ) I have the same issue

  11. I can't attend either and I live a couple hours away! I'm hoping in the future I'll be able to attend, in the meantime I'll be envying all the bloggers who can go :P Hopefully one day you'll be able to make it to the States and attend a convention!

    Best wishes, and I hope you have a lovely weekend!

  15. I don't get why Australia and other countries don't have book conventions, too. There are plenty of readers and authors there, so why not? I hope you can visit the US and go to one. I've never been to one either.
