Has anyone here been to BEA (Book Expo of America)? I am planning on going and I have no idea how to go about it.

How much money should I save?

What hotel should I stay in?

What should I bring?

Those kind of things...If you have been tell us (me ) your secrets!!

Aisha Oaktree (aishao) I went last year, my aunt lives in central park west so i won't know about hotels, but bring lots of comfy but professional clothing & shoes. If your a blogger, if your just a public reader then just comfy clothes and shoes.

Use the website and look into all the publishers & figure out where they have signings so you can be there (be prepared to wait a while for the popular authors), watch the social networks the authors themselves might tweet or post if they are doing impromptu signings as well.

Check out Lexi's post about BEA: and check out the rest of her BEA posts from last year as well
