1) The bloggers. Obviously, the other book bloggers and authors make this event what it is. I loved visiting others' blogs and meeting new people. I didn't interact as much as I could have, and I missed out on the Twitter parties, but I tried to comment back and visit as many blogs as I possibly could. And everyone was giving each other support, leaving meaningful comments and participating in discussions.You guys are all amazing and your blogs are so awesome! Keep doing what you're doing because the book blogging community is so wonderful!
2) The discussions. What avid reader doesn't love discussing books? I loved how there were dual topics each day, so participants had a choice. If they weren't into one topic, they could just write about the other. I enjoyed reading the discussions, and I found so many books I need to read.
3) Guest articles. I didn't get to read all of the guest posts on the Armchair BEA site, but I really loved the ones I did read. One of my favorite guest articles was To Make A Long Story Short..., which explored different ways you can discover more short stories to read.
Overall, it was a blast, and I definitely want to participate next year! I really appreciated all of the comments, follows, etc! If you participated in Armchair BEA, what were your thoughts? Did have you a fun time and would you join in again next year?
