Book Blogger Hop for May 06, 2011: 05/05/11
I am lucky to live in a book loving area. I have two different groups of book lovers I meet with on a regular basis. My first group is BookCrossing which meets the second Tuesday of every month. The next is a small group of local book bloggers who get together semi-regularly for lunch.
BookCrossing is a book release site where users register books and then release them in the wild. Meeting other members isn't a requirement but I've been attending the monthly meetings since 2005.
Among my BookCrossing friends, I'm the only book blogger. So that brings me to my other group of book loving friends: the Bay Area book bloggers. A year ago Pam of Bookalicio.us contacted me via Twitter and asked me if I'd like to come to lunch. Since then I've been having lunch with her, Laura of I'm Booking It and Debbie of Debbie's World of Books.

Popping in again to say Hi! My Book Blogger Hop response is below, Sessha Batto, writer, artist and the most extraordinarily generous human being it has been my pleasure not to have met yet...
Have a lovely weekend.

I don't think I've heard of Sessha Batto before. I will stop by later to learn more.

Thanks for visiting me at Hands and Home! I wish that I had a group of book blogging friends that I could meet up with, but there aren't all that many that I know if in my area of Ontario.
Comment #8: Friday, May 6, 2011 at 18:48:02
Ontario has an active Bookcrossing population. I don't know if any of them are book bloggers thought.
Comment #9: Friday, May, 6, 2011 at 09:51:11
I'm jealous that you get to meet with book bloggers on a regular basis! I live in an area where the closest one (that I know of) is an hour (or more) drive away.
Comment #10: Friday, May 6, 2011 at 18:53:35
I was really surprised to learn how many bookbloggers were in my area. Sorry to hear that you're on your own.
Comment #11: Friday, May, 6, 2011 at 11:07:11
Wow, you are super lucky. That sounds fun.
Comment #12: Friday, May 6, 2011 at 18:55:10
It is. I always learn tons from our lunches.
Comment #13: Friday, May, 6, 2011 at 13:16:32
Thanks for visiting my blog :) I love meeting new fellow bloggers; everyone just has the same passion for books and just chatting; it's awesome!
Comment #14: Friday, May 6, 2011 at 18:55:10
It is fun meeting up with fellow bloggers.

Bookalicio.us has a lovely blog. I also didn't stick to the one only rule, there are 4 on my post.
Comment #18: Friday, May 6, 2011 at 19:30:40
Pam is as lovely as her blog. I always learn something new from her when we meet for lunch.

Thanks for visiting and I thought that I would return the favor. I bet its fun to be able to meet with fellow book bloggers at times. I hope you are having a great weekend!!!
Comment #22: Friday, May 6, 2011 at 19:34:51
I'm planning on a quiet weekend. Thanks for the return visit.
Comment #23: Friday, May, 6, 2011 at 15:15:58
I‚ve met so many great people via the Book Book Blogger Con at Book Expo America I honestly can't come up with a single name of a book blogger I want to meet but haven't yet!
I'm heading back to BBC @ BEA. I hope to see you there!
Hop on by my blog and just say hi
Comment #24: Friday, May 6, 2011 at 19:35:51
I can't afford to go to BEA.
Comment #25: Friday, May, 6, 2011 at 16:12:36
HI, thanks for stopping by my blog.
It's great you get to see so many book lovers.
Have a great weekend.
Comment #26: Friday, May 6, 2011 at 19:35:51
I'm as far away from BEA as you are and can't afford to go. I know of quite a few Bookbloggers who are also members of BookCrossing in the UK.
Comment #27: Friday, May, 6, 2011 at 16:22:00
That's cool that you live in such a book-loving area. I'm the same way. There are so many book bloggers in Utah and we get together twice a year with a lot of the local authors too. We've had a few big names at our gatherings: James Dashner, Shannon Hale, Ally Condie. It's pretty cool.
Comment #28: Friday, May 6, 2011 at 19:41:33
I have quite a few Utah based book blogger friends. I'd love to meet up with them in person some day.
Comment #29: Friday, May, 6, 2011 at 16:26:48

Hopping by today!
The Octonauts and the Sea of Shade looks like an interesting book. I am always looking new children's books
Comment #34: Friday, May 6, 2011 at 19:50:11
The Octonauts series by Meomi is lovely.

Thank you. I don't have any special plans tomorrow except for maybe a swim if the weather warms up.
Comment #47: Saturday, May, 7, 2011 at 23:49:23
I would give anything to have lunch with my fellow book bloggers. I feel pretty lonesome.

Grace @ Books Like Breathing
Thank you so much for stopping by my blog. I would've responded sooner but I was ill :(
I wish I lived in a bloggy area but I haven't found a fellow blogger in my area. Maybe I need to ask around.
Comment #52: Tuesday, May 9, 2011 at 23:48:54
I hope you're feeling better. Ask around, you might find someone. Pam found me that way. I'm glad she did.
