Showing My Virtual Love for The ArmChairBEA Organizers

Many of us were given a great gift this week by attending the #armchairBEA. 5 wonderful women had an idea and it not only came to fruition, it dazzled many of us all week.

Personally, I met  more bloggers that think a lot like I do than I have come across in all the years that I have been doing this. There were so many times that I said to myself, “Why have I never met this blog or person before, I really like them!”

I learned, I laughed, I explored all of the wonderful different paths that brought us all to having a similar passion. I am energized, pumped up, and maybe just a wee bit tired, but mostly just grateful that I was included and astounded at what they created.

I have very little to give in thanks other than words, but to go along with my usual Showing Your Love Of Books post, I would give these gifts to you if it were in my power,

    This Armchair event was fun, wasn’t it? Maybe I WON’T go to the real thing next year.

    I did a wrap-up post too. (Come over for a swim!)

  • You are so sweet! I’m weeping with gratitude at how well-received this silly event was! It seriously was so spur-of-the-moment. It blossomed into something bigger than I ever anticipated.

    I am so glad you enjoyed yourself. It definitely makes the long lines, bad behavior, and aching, swollen feet in NYC seem less appealing.

    I hope we can meet IRL sometime before the next event!

  • Aww.. you are so sweet! Love your post and what you came up with! I loved this event too, so I am highly thankful to the organizers for having set it up!

  • This is seriously awesome!!!! Thank you so much for the virtual gift and I totally had to laugh when I saw mine!! I loved it!!! 🙂

    We had no idea this event would be so big and such a hit as it was!! I had so much fun and look forward to doing it again. In the meantime, I am going to enjoy visiting blogs such as your’s on a more regular basis. Afterall, what you have said about meeting more people online that are like us than in real life, is so true for me as well!!

    Thanks again, and I will definitely be back!! 🙂
