New Blogger Friends and New Books

On Monday, Z and I went to a bookish meetup at local bookstore Third Place Books here in Seattle. We met a couple of local bloggers and authors including

Marilyn of Marilyn's Romance Reviews
Ciara Stewart blogger and author
Wendi of Wendi's Book Corner
Sheila Roberts, author
and the world famous publicist, Miriam Parker of Hachette Book Group.

We traded ARCs and talked about what makes a blog tour successful and interesting. If you are in the area, we will be meeting again probably around the end of October and would love to have more bloggers and authors to chat with!

Since I was at a bookstore, it would have been silly to leave empty-handed so I ended up with two used hardcover books, Jasper Fforde's The Fourth Bear and Umberto Eco's The Mysterious Flame of Queen Loana.

Breaking out of our shells,
K and Z


  1. How fun! I'd love to go a blogger meet up one of these days. :)

  2. How wonderful! I would love to meet other bloggers some day...I'm slowly building my courage!

    And it is irresponsible to leave a bookstore without purchasing something!

  3. Eva - It was fun to "talk blog" with people who get it!

    Jenners - I almost chickened out at the last minute but this is my "year of doing things". I am trying to say yes to things I would normally find a reason to say no to and I am trying to follow through once I say yes!
