Book Bloggers’ Paradise

January 31, 2009

Carl and I are in Virginia visiting his family.  We stopped along the way so I could have lunch with Jaime of Confessions of a Bibliophile, Jennifer of The Literate Housewife Review and Miriam of Hachette Books.  It was so much fun to meet these wonderful women in person and talk about books over lunch!  They’re twice as nice as you think they are!  I came away from lunch with three new books and went straight to the bookstore and bought another one.

This is Miriam and me.


Standing is me, Miriam and Jennifer.  Seated is Jaime.

    That’s so cool you got to meet Miriam and some other bloggers.

    How exciting! I know there are so many book bloggers in the D.C./VA/MD area, it’s crazy. Someday we’ll all have to have a giant convention of bookish discussion and tomfoolery! 🙂 Enjoy the rest of your weekend!

    Kathy, I had a wonderful time, too! Thanks for organizing this. It was a pleasure to meet Miriam and Jamie, too. Lunch was delicious. We need to get together whenever you’re in town. I hope that you enjoy the rest of your trip.

    Cool! I’m so jealous you got to meet some amazing ladies!

  10. January 31, 2009 11:48 pm

    It sounds bad to say that I’m jealous, because I am happy for you..but I’m jealous!! I’m glad you had fun!

  11. February 1, 2009 12:22 am

    I’m with Amy on this one — I’m horribly jealous but very, very happy for you! Looks like you all had a great time!

    What fun! If you ever come to Cleveland…(it’s amazing but no one ever seems to ‘stop by’ the Cleveland area :))

  15. February 1, 2009 11:03 am

    Oh, I’m definitely jealous! Come to Richmond (or somewhere close) next time!

  16. February 1, 2009 11:30 am

    How awesome! I’m so envious but happy for you all. What a great get together. That’s the bad thing about being in Canada, most of the bloggers I know are in the States.

  17. February 1, 2009 12:19 pm

    That is so neat that you guys could meet up! Thanks for sharing the pictures with us.

  18. February 1, 2009 12:23 pm

    I wish I could have been there (or at the very least a fly on the wall listening in). Looks like fun!

  19. February 1, 2009 12:29 pm

    Thanks for sharing the pictures! It looks like you guys had a great time.

  20. February 1, 2009 12:36 pm

    Oh, I’m so jealous! How exciting for you! Looks like y’all had lots of fun and you got new books to boot!

  21. February 1, 2009 12:36 pm

    I hope you know how lucky you are — I think you do! I’m so jealous! Can’t wait to hear more about it.

  22. February 1, 2009 6:08 pm

    How awesome! Looks like you ladies had fun. =)

    (And I’m jealous, too!)

  23. February 1, 2009 6:16 pm

    Oh wow – How neat is that! Lucky you!

  24. February 1, 2009 7:06 pm

    How fun! Thanks for sharing the pictures! And you know, I’ll make myself available for lunch/dinner/drinks for anyone who comes to the Boston area 🙂

  25. February 1, 2009 8:53 pm

    How neat! I am so thrilled you all had such a great time!

  26. February 1, 2009 9:58 pm

    Kathy, Great pics. I know you were really excited to meet everyone. You already know how jealous I was of you. LOL I am sure you guys had a blast. Its great to talk books over lunch with fellow booklovers.

    What books did you get?

  27. February 1, 2009 10:31 pm

    Wish I had been there too! Thanks for sharing pics:)

  28. February 1, 2009 11:39 pm

    Oh cool, your lunch date must have been such fun. I hope you and your husband are having a great time too 🙂

  29. February 2, 2009 1:39 am

    I am officially the green eyed monster here!! Great Pictures. What a good time you all had. Yep.. I’m jealous!

  30. February 2, 2009 9:59 am

    Lucky!!!! I saw one of those pics on Jennifer’s blog last night and had to pop over this morning to see what you’d written about it! What books did you get??

  31. February 2, 2009 10:58 am

    This looks so fun! We have to do this in DC!

  32. February 2, 2009 12:26 pm

    How fun! And points to Carl for stopping on the way!!

  33. February 2, 2009 6:52 pm

    What fun!! I’m envious that you got to meet some other bloggers *and* Miriam. 🙂

  34. February 2, 2009 7:17 pm

    how fabulous ! You all look so sweet. I bet you talked about something besides books, now ‘fess up!

  35. February 2, 2009 11:34 pm

    Thanks for sharing these pics, Kathy! How fun that you got to meet Miriam and other bloggers!

  36. February 3, 2009 12:51 am

    Oh Kathy! What a fun time – I’d like to try to do something like that up here in Seattle for the local bloggers! 🙂

    Thanks for stopping by and commenting on Thingers last week! I’ve got the post up for this week. ~ Wendi

  37. February 3, 2009 2:26 pm

    What fun! It’s great to meet other bloggers. I’m glad you had a wonderful time.

  38. February 3, 2009 3:56 pm

    NO FAIR!!!

  39. February 3, 2009 11:34 pm

    No fair is right.
    It’s always nice to find kindred spirits.

  40. February 4, 2009 9:14 am

    Looks like a good time was had by all! I would love to get together with other book bloggers in the DC/VA/MD area…I think that would be great fun!

  41. February 4, 2009 5:00 pm

    Get out! I cannot believe you met the wonderful Miriam! She’s adorable, as are the rest of you. What fun to have a get together.

  42. February 4, 2009 9:41 pm

    I’m very jealous too! Looks like you had fun! What are the 4 books?? Do we get to know?

  43. February 4, 2009 11:19 pm

    I will put my 2 cents in too that I wish all of us could have a book blog meet up somewhere. I don’t know if you know that they will be having a book festival for SC at the end of the month. Next time you go away and you are headed to Myrtle Beach let me know and maybe we can meet up too. I would love to see how many of us bloggers are in the Ga, SC, NC area.

  44. February 5, 2009 12:43 pm

    Kathy, that looks like such fun! How great to be able to chat in person to some of the people we interact with every day online. You guys look like you are having a wonderful time!
