Soooooo… Friday’s Porter Square Book Blogger Event was a success! I arrived a little early and scoped out the crowd. Sadly, there seemed to be no one there, which actually eased my nerves a bit. I met Josh Cook of Porter Square Books, Ann from Books on the Nightstand and Marie from The Boston Bibliophile. Sadly, the other bloggers couldn’t make it, but it was a nice intimate event with a kick-ass group of people there to see it. The whole thing sort of turned into a chat about book recommendations, with members of the audience telling us what they’d recommend, asking about blogging, and the three of us telling stories about blogging. Among the audience members was Tahleen of Tahleen’s Mixed Up Files. I’d highly recommend checking out these blogs for great (and a wide range) of book recommendations and thoughtful book reviews. Books on the Nightstand also offers a weekly podcast, so if you’re more interested in listening to book talk, that’s where you should go.
The event lit a fire under me to spruce up the blog, so expect a few changes coming. There are some things I’ve had on the docket that I figured would make the whole operation run more smoothly and make the site easier to navigate, but I’ve yet to incorporate them. I’m excited to update my calendar with book events coming up around Boston that I can write about and more up-to-date books that I’ll be reading.
