Introducing My BEA/BBC Roommates


I'm REALLY starting to get excited about BEA and the BBC. I know it is still over a month away but I like to plan in advance - it makes me happy.

My biggest stress was finding people to share a room with. I have no problem meeting new people or sharing a room with someone I don't know, my problem was how to FIND these people. So I was very grateful when another blogger posted about the roommate finder survey going on at Neverending Shelf. I filled out the form then browsed the comments and guess what I found there? Three people who were looking for a 4th roomie - WOOHOO!

Without futher ado, here are my three roommates:
We'll be staying at the Comfort Inn just two blocks from the Convention Center. I couldn't be happier! Now I just need to buy my train ticket and I'll be all set to go.


*** Questions For You ***

Are you going to any part of BEA or the BBC? If so, I'd love to know what days you'll be there and which hotel you'll be at.

I'll be at BEA and the BB con. I'm rooming with my husband :)

Trisha said...

I am so excited about going. I'm staying at the Fairfield Inn New York Manhattan/Times Square, and I will be all by myself, so I would absolutely love to set something up to meet you! I arrive on Monday and I'm not leaving until Saturday!

*pout* Nope, I won't be going. Can't afford it this year. May be able to talk hubby into it next year, though.
Glad you found your roommates.

Deborah said...

i'll be at BEA and Book blogger con! i'll be staying with my brother in law, who lives in brooklyn

Ryan G said...

Alas, I won't be able to go this year. It's during out busiest time of the year, maybe someday though. The roomate situation would be a little odd for me since most of the other bloggers going are girls.

I'll be at BEA and BBC! No hotel for me though. Can't see paying for room when I can commute from NJ every day.

I'm really looking forward tot meeting you! I am actually renting a studio apartment in Chelsea Tuesday through Saturday. My husband will be there with me at least part of the time, and I love having the ability to have a kitchen to cook some of my own food and store leftovers.

bermudaonion & Lenore & Trisha - GREAT! I'm looking forward to meeting all of you, and Booking Mama as well.

Robin - That's too bad. :( Maybe next year ...

Deborah - YAY! Can't wait to meet you.

Ryan - Yeah, that does make it a bit more difficult, but I'm SURE you could work something out. Hopefully I'll get to meet you sometime.

~Jennifer~ & nomadreader - I'm so excited to meet you both!

April - Thanks for letting me room with you gals - I'm so looking forward to meeting you all. :)

Serena, The Girl, and I are sharing a room. We'll arrive in the city the Saturday before BEA. Hope we can meet up at some point.

I'll be at both events and sharing a room with Anna and her kiddo. We'll be at the Paramount near times square.

This is so awesome that you're going! I went last year and it was absolutely fantastic. I am not sure if I will be going this year. I have registered just in case but I will be looking forward to your after BEA posts regardless.

Heather J. said...

Anna & Serena - It will be great to see you again, although it's hilarious that we have to go to NYC to do it, considering that we live so close! LOL

lilly - Let me know what you decide - I'd love to meet you. :)

GMR said...

So jealous....but perhaps I can attend next year. Enjoy it and be sure to bring us back all the details! =0)

Heather J. said...

GMR - Aww too bad. :( Maybe next time ...
