In my first two years of blogging, I only had two opportunities to meet other bloggers. There are so many bloggers that I talk to on a regular basis that I’ve never met in real life, but this week I’m changing that!
I started off the weekend by meeting the fabulous Michelle from Michelle’s Masterful Musings who is in town for the weekend. We met at my favorite bookstore, The Bookstore in Glen Ellyn (I’m not sure that book bloggers are capable of meeting somewhere that doesn’t revolve around books). My favorite booksellers Margie and Sue were nice enough to come in on their day off to help us pick out some books and go to lunch with us.
And, of course, this coming week is BEA! Lots of bloggers are already in New York, but I’m not leaving until Tuesday night – hard to leave a cutie like Daniel for too long! I’m really looking forward to my time away in New York, though. I’ve done a lot of prep work to figure out what sort of stuff I want to be doing while I’m there, and I actually posted some of the ideas for any of you whose schedules aren’t finalized. I have posts about the panels and BEA events, author signings, and outside events that book bloggers are excited about.
Last Sunday I was sort of stressing out about how many books I was trying to get finished before I leave for BEA. Amazingly, I actually finished everything on my schedule already and think I’ll finish 1 or 2 more before I leave (I’m already halfway through one).
Here’s what I finished last week, but before you freak out, remember that I didn’t read all of “Wolf Hall” last week, I only finished the last section.
All five of these are scheduled for review in the next two weeks, so keep a look out.
Speaking of reviews, here’s what I reviewed last week:
Oh, and Beth Hoffman, author of “Saving CeeCee Honeycutt” wrote a guest post about friendship, that has a giveaway attached, if you missed it!
