Oh, boy. What a topic with what’s been going on in the world.


1. Book Bonanza 2021

2. LoveNVegas

3. Shameless Book Con

4. ApollyCon

5. RARE London

6. Music City with the Belles


7. The Bookworm Box

8. Powell’s City of Books

I’ve been here quite of few times, but want to go agian.

9. Elliot Bay Bookstore

Again, been here, but want to support a local bookstore once it’s safe to again.

10. Third Place Books

I’ve never been, but want to and it’s close enough.

Are there some I’m missing? I’m all about romance novels, so if you know of any I should put on this list, let me know!

  1. I went to ApollyCon when it was in Savannah because it was so close to me (relatively). Then it switched to D.C. which is whole lot further. With ApollyCon being cancelled until 2022 I’m waiting to see if the location changes before deciding whether to try and go again.

    1. I would rather go to Savannah than DC. I didn’t realize they were cancelled until 2022. That’s a good move on their part.

  2. Powell’s is on my list of must-see bookstores. I also like the sound of Book Bonanza. Great list!

    1. Oh, it’s amazing! You need to go there if you can sometime. Same with Book Bonanza. It’s romance author galore! Thanks!

  3. I feel like I’m a bad bookworm because I don’t know much about any of these events. One bookish thing I would really love to go to, though, is a book signing with Pierce Brown.

    1. No, you’re not! I only know because I follow romance authors on social media and they post about attending them. I hope you get to go to that signing one day!

  4. if you are close enough you should go to a Turn the Page bookstore signing I go to a lot of them they are so nice and town is so cute. A lot of romance authors go to those signings 🙂

    1. I would love to go there, too! I forgot about that one. I’m so far away…and it feels even further these days. 🙁

    1. You did? That’s awesome. I really like the Portland area. The last time I was there was last summer for my daughter’s soccer tournament. Of course I snuck in a trip to Powell’s! I hope you get to visit it soon.

      1. There actually ended up being a bad ice storm, and the drive to Phily would have been tough. There were so many amazing authors there though.

    1. That’s awesome! I was lucky to go to BB18 with a friend, and I’m so glad I did now. I hope this COVID mess has gotten better so I can go next June, but I’m not crossing my fingers.

    1. I’ve been wanting to, but the last time I was planning on it was when it snowed here. And you know how driving in the snow in the greater Seattle area is. ICK.

  5. You picked some fantastic events and bookstores. I have RARE on my list too, I actually had tickets for Edinburgh but sold them even before the pandemic. A few years ago I had the pleasure of going to Powell’s – it’s great! But if you ever get to LA you need to check out The Last Bookstore, and The Ripped Bodice.
