Ontario Book Bloggers get together

Just wanted to say a quick thank you to the Ontario Blog Squad (Jen, Jackie and Liz - thanks for the T-sihirt - if there are others I don't know your names) for all their hard work in putting together our first (hopefully) annual meeting in Toronto.  We met for a late lunch at the Duke of York and proceeded to talk up a storm.  It was so wonderful to meet some of the bloggers I follow on a regular basis. 

Sometimes I (we)  feel that I am alone in my corner of the world, so it was amazingly cheering to meet so many like enthusiasts.  I know that there is another book blogger who lives just around the corner from me - Hi Liz - and two who live just down the road in the next small town - Hi Jackie and Mel - Jen, I'm really looking forward to that workshop in May, - Chandi, you really made me think about 'The Book of Eli' and I have reluctantly come to the conclusion you were right after all :) - and many others within a relatively small area.

Many thanks to Jennifer, Natasha, Terri and all the others whose names escape me right now, who made me feel so much a part of the community, and to the publishers who donated lots of goodies for our goody bags.  I wish I had a photo to post, but in true Curlypow style, I forgot my camera.  I'm already looking forward to next year.

Oh and a big thank you to our long suffering server who was incredibly patient with such a large group of very noisy women.  Sorry you couldn't make it Christinabean - we'll shoot for next year, right? Now I'm off to have a look at some of those great books I got - Fever here I come!

  1. Thank you for coming out. It was great to have you there and I am so glad you enjoyed yourself.

    Don't worry, I think I can speak for the rest of the organizers (Mel, Jackie, Liz, Wendy, Angel, Jen, Christa, & Me) when I say we will certainly plan another meet-up!
