Off to ALA Midwinter!

AHHHHH! it's Thursday, which mean it's the day I fly to Chicago for ALA Midwinter at the buttcrack of the buttcrack of dawn! I have no idea what to expect, as I've never been to ALA before, but I'll be staying with the wonderful Gaby from Bookish Broads who HAS and can hopefully keep me from being utterly overwhelmed. (For those who don't know, ALA is a convention held by the American Library Association for librarians (duh) and it's all about books and libraries and...library books? Clearly I know exactly what I'm doing here).

I hear it's a lot more chill than BEA, which I've gone to twice. literally, since it's in Chicago in January, which...I want the name of the person who decided THAT and we shall have WORDS. But anyway, preparing for ALA is part of the reason the blog's been mostly quiet this week, and ATTENDING ALA is the reason it will continue to be quiet this weekend. Regularly scheduled irregularly scheduled blogging shall commence on Monday.

IF YOU'RE GOING, HIT ME UP! Tweet me or comment here or shout at me fromacross the conference hall. I don't know. Whatever's your style, man. I'd love to meet up or have somebody who actually knows what they're doing keep me from making a total fool of myself!

  6. I've always wanted to go to ALA. Hopefully someday! I also think I'd probably like it better than BEA. I'm sure it's still just as crazy but probably just a tad less so, right? Hope you have lots of fun! And, yes, I want to know who thought it was a good idea to have ALA in Chicago in the middle of winter... ALA in the summer in Chicago wouldn't be nearly as bad.

  7. Have fun! And stay warm over there! (It's a good bet someone with a grudge decided on Chicago in winter.)
