Today marks the one-year anniversary of my blog. I just wanted to take a moment to thank all of you for making it possible. The book blogging community is a wonderful and supportive place filled with so many nice people who love to talk about books. It’s something I didn’t expect to find when I started my blog, and I’m so very glad that I did.
I decided to make the trip out to NYC for Book Expo America in early June. I’ll be in NYC for the conference from June 4-8. I’ll be very broke afterwards, but it will be entirely worth it just to get to hang out with so many bookish people gathered in one place and learn more about where the book industry is headed. I’m incredibly excited. Many thanks to Memory for being my BEA roommate! 🙂
In other news, Naithin and Amanda are hosting a groupread of Brandon Sanderson’s “Warbreaker.” I was a bit hesitant to add another groupread when I’m already doing the “Neverwhere” and “Red Seas Under Red Skies” readalongs, but I am going through Sanderson withdrawal. Brandon Sanderson’s books are that good. I found a copy of “Warbreaker” earlier this week at a “Take a book, leave a book” library in a random coffee shop, so I’m pretty sure that the universe is telling me that I need to be a part of this groupread. For anyone who’s interested, here’s the schedule:
