TGIF: Book Blogger Retreat
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.
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.
