TGIF: Book Blogger Retreat

March 30, 2012
tags: ,

It’s Friday! It’s Friday! It’s Friday of the longest week eveeeeeerrrrrrr!    

But this weekend holds heaps of good things, one of which is VERY BOOKISH in nature and allows me to see Miss Jamie of Perpetual Page-Turner. And a whole bunch of YA authors. Which is always a happy thing.

Also, being filed in the happy category is Ginger of GReadsBooks‘s question of the week:

Book Blogger Retreat: If you could gather up a handful of book blogger friends to spend a weekend away talking books, where would you go? Tell us about it.

As much as I want this answer to be someplace exotic and warm and beachy, or on the flip side, European and full of adventure and foreign accents and pastries, I think my honest answer is . . . Arkansas.

University of Arkansas campus

I know it seems underwhelming, but. Y’all. Arkansas is legit. I grew up there and love it dearly. And the area I’m from in AR is gorgeous and fun and CHEAP. Seriously. You can take $15 with you when you go out drinking and be in a GOOD PLACE by the end of the night.

And while it’s always a good time to go out and drink and act ridiculous, I think what would be the best is renting a cabin or a house somewhere by the lake, stocking up on junk food and wine, making the dress code pajamas-only, and just hanging out for the weekend chatting about books and Friday Night Lights and boys and life.

It would be the best weekend ever. And, actually, I think that I would have a great time with book blogger friends ANYWHERE we decided to go, be in a cabin in the woods or a swanky hotel room we all have to cram into so that we can afford it. Because friends + books + wine = all things good and holy.

    I love this idea, SO MUCH. It’s been quite awhile since I visited Arkansas, but I’d be down for a blogger retreat there 🙂 Just let me freeze time so that I can leave the craziness of my life for a bit, haha. I’m a big fan of pajamas, wine, and discussing all things bookish. We can even play the FNL soundtrack in the background LOL!
