  1. The best thing about not being at BEA is that I'm on vacation in Florida!

  2. Thanks for the giveaway! Ironically, the best thing about not going to BEA is that I have tons of time to read - I'm currently averaging a book a day.

    1. That is a LOT of books - and yeah for more reading time!

  4. The best thing about not going to BEA in NY is I get to stay home and see my daughter's 6th grade graduation today. :) Thanks for the giveaway opportunity!

  5. The one good thing is I have more time to read

    ReplyDelete

    1. There's definitely more reading time with Armchair BEA :)

  6. I know others have said this already, but it's true! I have so much time to read right now, it's awesome! :)

    1. I've definitely got more time to do stuff, I just wish it was reading I got to do :)

  7. One good thing about not making it there is that I won't be spending a fortune in hotels/food/gas, etc.

    ReplyDelete
    Replies
    1. Yes! Which was one reason I didn't make it there in the first place :)

      Delete
  8. Hmm I guess it's good I'll be able to make my car payment this month ;)

    ReplyDelete
    Replies
    1. Car payment is not as exciting, but certainly the better choice :)

    1. I love the community building from my armchair. And the commiserating with folks in my situation, too!

      Delete
  10. For me, it's my finances. My finances won't suffer from all the spending I'd do in NYC, not that I'd have a lot. But, still. ;)

    ReplyDelete
    Replies
    1. Same here! Couldn't afford it, so my pocketbook stays happy if not full :)

      Delete
  11. The best thing about not going to BEA is that I got to sleep super late and lounge in my jammies all day long! That's a big deal. Oh, and I have access to more food. And I can read in-between meeting people and entering giveaways! Thanks for the opportunity to win yours!

    1. I like the more relaxed feel too, though I still have to work, so no jammies or sleeping in for me :)

      Delete
  12. One good thing about not making it to BEA is that I get loads of time with my boyfriend! We're in a long distance relationship so I really value all the time we can spend together!

    ReplyDelete
    Replies
    1. That's a much better use of your time! So glad you get to see each other.

      Delete
  13. I like your positive spin on this question :) Let's see, one good thing about not going to BEA is that it's supposed to be rainy and cool all week. Plus, I don't have to deal with the traffic getting in and out of the city. AND I'm not attending BEA this year because I just moved to Texas, and moving from NY to Texas has been beyond awesome! So giving up BEA for that is well worth it. :D Oops, I think that's a few more than one reason (can you tell I'm excited to not live in NY anymore??)

    ReplyDelete
    Replies
    1. I don't think I'd like to live in NY either, but visiting can be nice sometimes. Oh, the traffic! That should count for like 10 reasons :)

      Delete
  14. Thanks for the giveaway! I guess a good thing about NOT being in NY for BEA this year would be saving all the money that it would take to go and meeting all you awesome fellow bloggers! :)

    ReplyDelete
    Replies
    1. Love that we can save $ and meet people - it's a win-win!

      Delete
  15. The best part is doing Armchair BEA!

    ReplyDelete
  16. The best part about NOT going is more time to blog and read and more money for more books!!

    ReplyDelete
    Replies
    1. Time and money are huge! It's nice to have a bit more of both :)

      Delete
  17. No lines! And no fighting and stampeding for ARCs.

    ReplyDelete
  18. I'd have to second a lot of what Jana said! Sleeping in, staying in my PJs, not having to put makeup on or deal with massive crowds all day...definitely an upside! Lol.

    ReplyDelete
    Replies
    1. Definitely nice not to put on the crowd face for everyone.

      Delete
  19. I think it'd definitely be all the people I've ended up meeting and getting to work on my own schedule! Great giveaway!

    ReplyDelete
  20. Great contest! I have been loving connecting with other bloggers even though I'm not at BEA.

    ReplyDelete
  21. one good thing about not making it to BEA in NY this year :) ? i'm able to complete my own manuscript for the required deadline !
    thanks for the giveaway generosity and FuN ! :)

    1. Ooh, that's a great reason to stay home!

      Delete
  22. Thanks for the giveaway opportunity! One good thing about not being at the actual event is being able to browse a whole host of blogs I'd never seen before.

    I hope you have a great BEA-filled week!

  24. Turns out my husband had a business trip during the BEA days, so I needed to be home with my kids. I consider it a good thing that I didn't have to worry about finding someone to stay with them, and then stress about it while away from home.

    ReplyDelete
    Replies
    1. So glad you got to avoid that stress! I'd worry too :)

      Delete
  25. The best think about not being there is the fact that I feel like I'm there because of Armchair BEA. I've found so many great blogs I hadn't visited before!
    Thanks for the opportunity to win!

    1. It does feel like the networking doesn't it? Except in our jammies :)

      Delete
  26. Saving money and dodging the crowds are definitely upsides, but I still really, really, really want to go someday!

    ReplyDelete
  27. I have to say that I really ache to go to BEA, but since I'm still a minor, it is not really possible. I can honestly say that I have so much work to do before school ends next week, so it is nice to see how BEA is going from home.

    ReplyDelete
  28. Oh wow! Amazing giveaway. Thank you! One good thing is that I saved a bunch of money so that I can be in my best friends wedding. Weddings are so expensive!

    ReplyDelete
  29. I loved ABea because I got to participate in BEA while in sweats!

Love it when you comment!
