Once again, the wonderful crowd that is the Utah Book Bloggers gathered to get to know each other better. We met at a very windy park, ate food, talked and talked, exchanged books, and planned an upcoming project that you'll hear much about later! And once again, it was great fun!
Here's a few pictures I took. I'm sure I didn't capture everyone that was there, so sorry if I missed you!
Oh boy, this picture didn't turn out too great! Right into the sun!
On the left you can see Bree Despain sitting on the grass. I think Britt from Confessions of a Book Habitue is right in the sun, with Lisa Mangum to her right. Standing up in the write is Barbara Richardson. In the pink is Jenni from Jenni Elyse. I didn't hear who is in the black sitting in front of her. Next to her, who you can't see much at all is Debbie from Cranberry Fries. And in the blue at the very edge of the picture is Julie from A Small Accomplishment.
Here's the pile of books we brought (well most of them are Natasha's!) to exchange.
Sitting are Anna from TangognaT and Myke from Live and Learn. (he is also the husband of long time blogger, Book Logged from A Reader's Journal, who ended up not being able to make it.)
Standing is Jason, Kim's (Good Clean Reads) husband. He was promoting a new project he's involved in that authors will be very interested in called TaleSpring.
Everyone's taking pictures! But of who?
These guys, that's who! Matt Kirby, with his ARC of The Clockwork Three, and Bree Despain with her ARC of The Lost Saint.
Here's a picture of Natasha from Maw Books Blog!
In this one we are examining the books on the grass, trying to decide which ones we want.
More foraging for books!
Others that I remember were there, but didn't get a picture of:
Lyn from Chronicle of an Infant Bibliophile
Graham from Graham Chops
Catie from Book Bound
And that's all I can remember! If I left you off, feel free to
yell at me bring it to my attention and I'll be sure to edit to include you!
We missed all those that couldn't come, both old and new faces! Hopefully we'll see you next time. We are thinking it will be the last Saturday in February, like last year. We hope that if we stick to the same date every year that people can plan around it. It really is a fun time and we hope to see as many of you there as can come.
