Its hard to believe that it was roughly a month ago when we had our local meet up. How fast the time flies.
We met up at our regular little tea shop and we commented on how busy the little tea shop was getting lately. Good for them. Although I keep saying it but I really need to try something new the next time I go. I love my hot apple drink and hot chocolate and their cheesecake and carrot cake are to die for but I feel as though I always get the same thing so I really think the next time I will try something else.
Sadly Avis was unable to attend this meet up because she wasn’t feeling well. Avis we missed you but get better soon. Donna, Linda (which by the way Linda has a new blog), and Tina and myself were all there. Sadly I missed a little friend who was waiting to meet me and I had just missed her. Linda’s sister I am so sorry I missed you but I am sure one day very soon we will meet up.
I always find that time flies when we meet up and everything you want to talk about never seems to happen. We all talked about books we got, the email requests from authors and publishers, books we are waiting to come, guys, jobs, life, New York, registering for BEA and BEA.
Of course another great thing about meeting up is passing on the books we read and want to read. I was able to pass along two books and a few magazines to Tina and five books and a bunch of Reader’s Digest to Linda. Donna has resisted the urge to take books so that she can catch up. Gee I wish I had her will power. I was able to clear away 7 books from my shelf but brought back four.
Here is what I brought home with me:
-Malice by Chris Wooding (I absolutely love the cover for this book.)
-Before I fall by Lauren Oliver (This comes out in March 2010)
-The Lonely Hearts Club by Elizabeth Eulberg (This comes out this month)
-Scarlett Fever by Maureen Johnson (This comes out in February)
Linda gave us each a bookmark and I got a really beautiful card from Linda’s sister thanking me for the books I was giving her. I hope you enjoy them.
Looking forward to our meet up in February.
Have you read any of these books? If so let me know.

Sounds like a fun meeting — wish I was close enough to come. BTW when is the BEA & where do you sign up?
Your meet-ups sound like so much fun! You are going to love The Lonely Hearts Club!
I’m so sorry I missed this get-together! Wouldn’t you know it, I’m feeling better today — just in time to go back to work!
Thanks for the BEA info Cindy. Is there a sign up link? Really think I want to go this year.
Never mind I googled it & found it. Thanks!
Oh those books look great! Enjoy!
Awesome post! I have yet to write a little something about Sunday’s meet-up, but I’m really tired. =(
I’m sure there will be another opportunity for my sister to meet you. It doesn’t hurt to try something new at the tea shop too. You don’t have to change the whole routine, but just trying 1 new tea or 1 new cake can be fun. I try to enjoy something new each time. I don’t like them all (not naming anything in particular here), but it’s fun. =)
Oh boy, BEA is approaching. Just a while ago, we were all excited when there was still 8 months left until BEA, but now look at us. We won’t be able to contain ourselves when we get to NY, lol. It’ll be fun. =)
I love hearing about your get togethers!
