Sunday Blatherings: Another Great Get Together

Yesterday we held another great Utah Author Book Blogger Social.  It was fun to see the group continue to grow, and this time was no different.  We had about 60+ great bloggers, authors, aspiring authors, etc. all meet up for dinner and a book swap.  I'm always a little nervous showing up to a book blogger get together (which is BIZARRE, because I teach teenagers every day), but it was really great and so easy to chat with other folks who know and understand book blogging, book reviewing, and other social medias.  When you share a love of reading, how can you not have plenty to talk about?  Book folks are so  nice and fun to chat with!

I'm sorry that I'm not better at taking pictures though.  For pictures, you'll have to visit one of the other 80 bloggers; I'm horrible toting a camera around!  (I will mention that Heather of Fire and Ice had the cutest little guy who snapped some pictures of me while I was talking to someone.  It was pretty funny, and I'm sure the pictures were pretty hilarious as well, since I didn't really know he was taking them!  Too cute.)

To check out our growing list of bloggers here in Utah, you can see the list at the Books Blog Ning.  Thanks to everyone who came, chatted, and had a great time with us.  As always, thanks to Natasha at Maw Books Blog for being our book blog community glue!  Yes, I called her glue, but all in a good way.  Also, Suey from It's all About Books, who always gets things rolling.  You both are great!   I hope that other folks can make it for our get together in August as well.  They are always such a fun time!


  1. Hi Becky, I was nervous too but turned out all my doubts were unfounded - I should've known a room full of bookish types would be totally unintimidating, with plenty to talk about.

    It was nice to see you if we didn't get a chance to formally meet.

    Thanks for the recap! I though it was a fun night and hope to attend again.

  2. Man, each recap I read makes me even sadder I didn't make it!

  3. Holly--Thanks for stopping in here to say hi, even if we didn't get a chance to really meet and chat! Now I'm following your blog. :)

    Melissa--Aw! I'm so sorry you couldn't make it. :(
