Just a quick update for all of us virtual convention-goers as folks head home from NYC...
The organizers of Armchair BEA deserve a whole passel-o-thanks for offering us all so many new opportunities to meet each other, offer serious - and not-so-serious - thoughts about literature in the cyberspheres, talk shop, and just plain celebrate our love of books and blogging. And the daily post prompts that the organizers offered us sparked exceptional conversations and gave us ample opportunity to reflect, much to the benefit - I trust - of all involved.
And I'd like to offer up a warm welcome to all who joined ActionReaders.com this week and who commented and/or followed here as we virtual-convened: What a joy to meet so many warm and talented bloggers.
I don't know about y'all, but I'm so enthused that I'm ready to offer up my time to help organize Armchair BEA next year - ActionReaders.com could provide an easy gathering space for monthly 'virtual BEA happy hours' to catch up with those we 'met' at the convention this week - and I'm going to keep returning to the linkies on the Armchair BEA website so I can continue to visit new book bloggers.
AND THE WINNER of the book + $20 donation to the charity of her choice on ActionReaders.com is...
