This is one of those mixture posts where I tell you about a few random things!
London (or nearby) YA people!
Firstly, I want YA bloggers living in or around London (or those willing to travel) to hop on over to Once Upon A Book Case. Jo has been picking my frazzled brain about a bloggers meet up. I decided I'm not going to the General Book Bloggers one. I don't want to be going home from London late at night. Hey people, safety first! So anyway she has more info on her post and some YA authors have shown an interest so you really should check it out HERE. Come on! Surely you want to know if I'm secretly a mutant bird kid posing as a librarian. This will be your opportunity to find out.
Absence Makes The Heart Grow Fonder
Next week is a hugely big week for me. It is book week at my school and my chance to wow everyone with my super-librarianess. (Or at least enthuse everyone about books for a whole week). So I'm actually going to be crazy busy and probably not going to have much free time. I don't think I'll have time to read as many posts and leave comments. What I will be doing at the end of the week is telling you all about my week's highlights. And just maybe I'll be having a special contest to share the bookish love with you all too. I'll miss you guys but I will schedule a few posts so you won't know I'm gone. If anyone is interested in the work that is involved in planning a book week, leave me a comment and I'll do a post about that too. I guess you'll only be interested if you're thinking about becoming a school librarian.
Welcome to some UK YA Newbies!
It is always nice to have new bloggers join our community. I want to draw your attention to some new UK people and to give a huge Bookette wave to these newbies! "Hi guys! If you ever have a question, don't be afraid to ask! I once got an email telling me that I'm actually really nice. I don't know why this person thought I would not be." If you haven't checked out these blogs, please do:
Ryan @ Empire of Books
Rhiana @ Rhiana Reads
Kirsty @ The Book Mogul
Iman @ Overbooked
Sarah @ Sarah's Reviews
The Online Book Bloggers Conference
I finally signed up for it. Yes, I paid about £13.50 and if I learn one thing I'll be happy. Of course, I'll share that one thing with you. I am in no way endorsing this thing. I am just taking a chance on it. Here is the link again if you're interested: http://www.romanceinthebackseat.com/bbpcon.html If you have a question that relates to international blogging specifically, let me know. I will pass on your query on to the organiser.
And finally, a question!
What do you think of The Bookette visually? I'm thinking I might save up and get a proper design for the blog. Any recommedations for blog designers and a rough estimate of cost? Or do you love me just the way I am LOL?
I'll miss you guys next week but I'll still be here for IMM. Do not despair!
