Quick Reminder!

Quick Reminder:

     Just reminding you all that I'll be out of town this week at BEA! I have some posts scheduled, but other than that, I may be hard to reach! Even on social media I may be hard to find. If you need me catch me in my e-mail. You can follow my experience in Chicago and BEA through my Twitter, Instagram, and Snapchat under the tag: #NikkiDoesBEA 
     I'm really anxious because I've never been on a plane... And to think I'll also be roaming the airport by myself. I'm terrified as you can expect. But even still I will be leaving to go to the airport tomorrow morning at 6:30 am. 
     But even as terrified as I am about navigating the airport, I'm super excited to get to Chicago, go see the Bean, the Michael Jordan statue, and to try some Chicago deep dish and some Chicago craft beer! And then most of all: GET SOME BOOKS! I have a couple I have my eye on and a couple some of my kids (the ones from my practicum) told me to grab, but overall I'm just going to network! 
     Last but not least, DON'T FORGET TO PARTICIPATE IN ARMCHAIR BEA IF YOU'RE NOT PLANNING TO GO TO CHICAGO!  Even though I've been blogging for 6 (OMG) years, this is my first time going to BEA. Armchair BEA was always there for me to participate in. It's really fun and serves as a great way to still have fun without actually being there. Another great way is to participate in the Twitter party that Hannah and some more bloggers and authors throw! They started it last year and it was definitely fun! I ended up winning More Happy Than Not by Adam Silvera from them last year! 
     So tell me, are YOU going to BEA?
What  should I look for while there?
Any other touristy places I should visit while in Chicago?!
Any tips for navigating the airport and making sure I don't end up in Kalamazoo? 

Lastly, because I'm missing my Armchair BEA giveaway this year, I'll just hold another one anyways lol 
This book was so good and I LOVED it. I laughed, I cried. It was just EVERYTHING. Also it's just fitting that I give away something I won last year during Armchair BEA! So now, I hope to make you all "More Happy Than Not" with this giveaway!
Here is a signed copy of More Happy Than Not paperback copy! It also includes a pamphlet on Leto Institute! 
(I may also throw in some things I get at BEA or got at TLA as well!!!) 

Ok, I extended it another week to give people a chance to see what else I got from TLA & BEA that I may have multiples of or may not want. Soooooooo, here you are. In addition to the signed paperback copy of Adam Silvera's book, that stack of goodies is yours as well!

  1. It's your first BEA too? Somehow I didn't know that! LOL!!

    We'll have an adventure together I am sure!! Airports aren't too tricky! They're all different and as long as you don't have a ton of connecting flights...what I'm used to as flying out of St. Louis is nothing like what it used to be sadly, you'll do great! It's the plane ride itself that can be the most worrying! But when you get off it always feels like everyone knows where the luggage claim is so just follow them! ;)

    See you soon!

  2. Have a great time at BEA! Wish i could go~

    thanks for the awesome giveaway!

  3. I've never been but I'd love to go someday! I hope you had a blast!
