I was a little apprehensive about going to this event by myself. I didn't really want to be hanging out by myself all day. Luckily, Christina contacted me and let
me know that she and a bunch of other book bloggers were going to meet up for brunch before the event started. I was definitely excited to go now that I was going to meet up with other book bloggers!
I made the 50 minute drive to West Chester and met up with the group of bloggers and authors for brunch. We went to a really cute restaurant in downtown West Chester and got to chat. It was so much fun meeting everyone and talking about books and blogging. It was so much fun getting to meet these awesome bloggers and authors. I met-Katelyn from The Bookshelf Sophisticate, Anne from Potter, Percy, And I (and her really sweet mom Veronica), Laura & Michelle from Borders Express in Exton, Cyn Balog, Jennifer Murgia, and Shelena Shorts!
After brunch we went headed back to the PAYA event! We did some major damage to our wallets before the signings started. I bought The Pace (Shelena Shorts), Angel Star ( Jennifer Murgia), The Secret Year (Jennifer R. Hubbard), and Sleepless (Cyn Balog). We had so much fun meeting all the authors--despite the fact that we were sweating our butts off in that room. They are some really awesome people! Afterwards we browsed around the used book sale and checked out the bake sale and the raffles that had a ton of really great prizes!

I hope to get a chance to meet up with them all again sometime! I'm excited for other literary events. I'm planning on going to the Brooklyn Book Festival and the National Book Festival in September. I hope I'll get a chance to meet up with other bloggers!
Wow! This sounds so awesome! How do you find out about these different events? I would love to participate in things like this in my area. I'm glad you had a good time and got to meet so many other bloggers!ReplyDelete
These are the kind of days us book lovers live for. I enjoyed reading about your day. And your book reviews are doing authors a real service. Keep up the good work.ReplyDelete
Looks like you had a wonderful time! Too bad this all started WAY after my family moved from PA...I would have been SO CLOSE! Cie la vie....happy reading!ReplyDelete
