BEA: Getting My Face Out There

Today I'm at my 10 year college reunion and I can't believe it's been 10 years! That seems crazy to me. Monday I'll be at Book Blogger Con (for the first time) and Tuesday and Wednesday I'll be at BEA. I can't wait to see you all (or meet you) and talk about books!

However, I have two confessions to make:

1. I'm SHY. Really shy. Sometimes it's hard to walk up to people and start a conversation, especially if a person you think you know is already talking to someone else. Each year I go, I get better at interrupting and saying Hello, but it's still hard.

2. I do spend a lot of time looking at name tags, but sometimes I recognize people from the blog name or twitter handle and NOT by reading the name tag. Then usually, after I'm home and I'm reading about all the fun everyone had, I realize, THAT'S who that was. And I feel like a dork because I didn't realize it at that moment.

So - just in case this works, here I am

And I'm so looking to chatting with book people next week! It's my favorite time of year!

I'm so jealous, I wish I was going to BEA this year. I'm going to have to save up so I can go next year.

Would be excited to meet you! Hope to cross paths! (in other news, I'm missing my college reunion right now! oops!)

I'll be there, and I'm nervous I won't recognize anyone there. I'll keep an eye out for you!
