Utah Book Bloggers Party!

Yup, that's what I did Saturday night. I hung out with book bloggers.

And we had a blast! (Well, right up until Mister was stung by a wasp on the playground.... but you know, other than that it was awesome.)

There were a whole bunch of us crazy bloggers there:

Natasha from Maw Books-- she's the organizer and instigator. :D

Cari from Bookscoops-- the only one I already knew in real life.

Lynn from Chronicle of an Infant Bibliophile-- with her cute bibliophile, naturally.

Becky from One Literature Nut, Emily from Emily's Reading Room, and Angie from Angieville-- who I talked to a lot... probably too much... sorry, ladies, if I monopolized you!

Stacy from Stacy Whitman's Grimoire and Drew from Books, Lies and Alibis-- both of whom I talked to a little.

And Melissa from One Librarian's Book Reviews and Suey from It's All About Books-- who I didn't really get to talk to. Which is totally my own fault for not leaving the chair I plopped myself on!

Here I am with Natasha (I'm the one in the Tigger shirt). This was "quick, take the pic, my son just got stung and is screaming bloody murder!"

And there were authors there.

Not one, not two, but 6!

Utah AuthorsSee, six. In the back, J. Scott Savage and James Dashner.
In the front, Brodi Ashton, Emily Wing Smith, Bree Despain, and Leeann Whiffen.

How cool is that? You're jealous, right? I knew you would be. :D

  1. I'm certainly jealous! I'm glad you had a good time, and I hope your son is feeling better.

  2. He is all better-- barely even a trace left!

    Sorry about the wonky spacing on this post! You wouldn't believe how many times I reformatted the stupid thing. All to no avail, apparently.

  3. I didn't really move from my seat either, so you're not the only one to blame!

  4. Sorry to hear about the wasp! Nice to meet you in person. :)

  5. Melissa-- :D well, you get comfortable and just don't want to get up, right? :D

    Bibliophile-- It was good to meet you too!

  6. After reading about what a good time y'all had I hope I can attend next time!
