California Book Blogger Lunch!

In attendance was (back row, left to right)  Florinda from 3 R's Blog, Jill from Fizzy Thoughts, Amy from My Friend Amy, and me. (Front row, left to right) Helen from Helen's Book Blog with her sweet dog, Danielle from There's a Book and Chick Lit Reviews with her adorable son Jase, and Ti from Book Chatter.
This past Saturday I got to do something very special: spend it with some fabulous California book bloggers! I was thrilled when a couple of months ago, Jill from Fizzy Thoughts decided to organize a book blogger lunch in Santa Barbara for any and all California Book Bloggers. While a bit of a drive from San Francisco, I thought it would be well worth it to head down and see what these ladies had to say since I still consider myself having a lot to learn in this blogging world.

Helen from Helen's Book Blog was kind enough to invite us into her home and feed us a delicious lunch where we spent the afternoon chatting about life, books and blogs. We all brought lots of books with us that we had read to swap which was a blast and then we went to famed Santa Barbara independent book store Chaucer's to go shopping together. It was such a fun day and I look forward to doing something like this again! You can see from the group in the photo above that California produces some pretty awesome book bloggers!

  4. Nice post; I am enjoying seeing what we each write about the event. I do wish I had gone to Chaucer's with all of you, but I just got home from there with Mockingjay!
