Starting last year when I saw all of my favorite authors and bloggers talking about BEA I got really interested. There was absolutely no way I could go last year but I thought this year I would have a chance.

Now that BEA is getting closer I realize that it was always just a dream. Transportation wouldn't have been hard since we drive up to Pennsylvania every year and I know my mom would be willing to make the extra trip, but it's the timing. When BEA fun is going on I have school. My only chance would be to leave Friday and come back Sunday, but that's a total waste of a ticket.

It's times like this when I wish I had some close book blogger buddies who are going who could pick me up some swag, but alas, I have none. I have blogger friends but none close enough who are going to BEA.

Is there anyone else in the same predicament?

Yes, I totally feel your pain! :( I've always wanted to go to BEA; it sounds wonderful and amazing. But unfortunately I live in Nevada! I'm sure my mom wouldn't mind taking me if I begged her enough and helped pay for part of it, but like you said, it's right in the middle of the school week.. There's no way she'd let me go.

I know how you feel as well. BEA sounds like such an amazing time. I would actually be finished with classes by the time it's on but I don't exactly have that kind of cash since I'm saving for other things at the moment. Plus, I'd have no one to go with seeing as my friends are poorish too haha. Still, maybe one day? Never say never.
