Armchair BEA is a yearly event that allows bloggers to participate in BEA from their own home.
Networking...In Real Life?!
Today's subject is where you recap bookish thing you've done in your community.
Today I'm going to share with you an awesome bookish experience that I got to participate in with my writing group. In September of last year. Our writing mentor, Patrick Jennings (author of 17 books for children) decided to host the first annual "Trilexathon", a 24 hour bookish marathon that consisted of writing, reading, and playing word games.

Participants arrived at 9:00 pm, September 2nd. Participants arrived with their weapons of mas destruction: books, writing notebooks, laptops, word games, and their wits to defeat their fellow writers. For this was not only a bookish trilexathon, but a competition of who could log the most minutes. *cough* I forgot who won. *cough, cough* Not me. *cough, cough.*
I used the blog as a way to share the group's updates. I originally hoped to do a live steam of it, but moving my computer around the house just didn't work. In the end, I just post updates every so often with the minutes.
Though I did end up falling asleep for a couple hours, I had a pretty good run, reading four books, writing three reviews, and playing loads of word games!
This was a great bookish event and I can't wait for this year's competition!
