Feature and Follow #17


So after my Feature and Follow comeback two weeks ago, I disappeared again last week. *facepalm* Sorry. I was busy last week that I forgot to write my post. But hey I'm back again this week. :P

Q:  We are about to see a lot of posts & tweets about reader conventions, RT, BEA, ALA and many more are starting soon. Which one would you love to attend? Where and why?


A: You know this question depresses me? Because I live far away from the countries these reader conventions are being held. But if I were the richest person in the world and I can fly to countries I want and attend reader conventions, I'd go to all of them. Who doesn't want that?




So how's your week been? Awesome? Tiring? Tell me about it! Or if you're too lazy to type, just leave your thoughts about my answer or the question and leave your link to your FF post so I could drop by as well and follow back! ;)




This Week:




And there's a lot of bloggers to follow too!

  1. Awww! you know I never really thought of the bloggers outside the US / Europe. I hope one day you'll get to attend a convention near you or somewhere else.

  2. Yeah, it's upsetting that there aren't more of these in other countries, but I guess it would get too pricey for the authors.

    Here's my Follow Friday

    Have a GREAT weekend!

    1. It would get pricey too, for the readers who live far away. :D

  3. I'm sorry you can't attend any conventions sadly neither can I and I live in the U.S. :( I feel like everyone participating in this week's FF isn't going which makes me feel a little bit better!

    Hope you have a great weekend!!

  4. Any of them would be amazing to go to, but I don't have the budget to take a plane from Belgium to the USA. =( So I know how you feel.

  10. Following back! It is funny you mention the distance thing because when I was answering this question I didn't even consider international conventions. Like you said, if I had tons of money I would want to travel and go to a convention in another country. What a better place to experience a different culture than a reading/art convention. The Phillipines should totally host one! Are there any good authors from your country that you'd recommend?

    1. I have read one book from a Filipino author--Kate Evangelista (Taste)--and it's really good. Though her publisher is from US, I think and there's not much copies here. I'm glad to read one of her books, though. You might want to try it! :)

      P.S Thanks for the follow back!

  11. It really is depressing, isn't it? I was thinking the same thing. It's going to suck watching everyone who IS there tweet and share stuff. lol

    Thanks for stopping by! Followed you back on FB :D

  13. aw, I'm sorry you like far away from them. It must be so hard to hear about all of them and want to attend. Maybe one day you'll get to go to one.

  16. Sigh I know what you mean, I'm from Atlantic Canada and no book expos or blogger conventions ever come around here. If I were rich I'd attend them all too though :D Lets hope these kinds of conventions keep expanding and eventually make it all over the world so everyone can attend!

    I hope you'll be able to attend soon :)
    Great answer, thanks for sharing!

  22. I feel so bad! Everyone's blog I've visited tonight seems to be international and can't go to these conventions! I wish they would do one for you guys! I live in the US, and I would love to go to one someday myself.

  26. I feel you. The only convention in the PH that I "partially" went to was the one hosted Edith Tiempo when I was in 5th grade. LOL

    The convention I went was the RT when they were in LA a couple of years ago.
