Last Wednesday night I had the great pleasure of meeting Dawn of She is Too Fond of Books and Sandy of You've GOTTA read this! for an amazing dinner at Citricos, located in Disney’s Grand Floridian. The food was, of course, amazing, but the highlight of the evening was dishing with two of the most interesting and relevant bloggers on the scene today. We shared a bit about the books we loved and hated, the inside details of our respective book clubs and the many nuances of being a book blogger. Our dinner lasted over 3½ hours and not for a moment did things get stale or topics get sparse. We dished about our families and histories, and shared our optimism about the new directions our blogs were taking us. We even had a blast in our efforts to find our way back to Dawn’s hotel. It’s always funny to me that book bloggers can create such strong ties with each other over virtual space, and when they finally meet each other in person, there’s such an immediate connection and a shared passion. It was a great evening out and I’m so thankful I got to spend such a great time in such esteemed company. Here’s a shot of the three of us at the restaurant bar, a photo which includes Phillip the chef, who seemed to sneak his way into almost every picture we took!
