This is a picture of the book swap.
I'm not good at taking pictures as you can see, every picture I got
Graham from Graham Chops was either going one way or the
other. Both pictures I have he's straddling the books. eh.

These ladies were such a treat to meet!
Sharla from WinterWrite
Matt Kirby with his ARC of The Clockwork Three
Cute Bree Despain with her ARC of The Lost Saint
But when I saw all these kiddos and that playground in the back, all that
hard won maturity flew out the window as I raced--yes raced each and every one of them
to the play ground.
I would love to attribute the lovely bloggers to whom these rambunctious chicks belong
to, but alas I am at a loss. So if any of guys know whom I should link please let me know so that I may link.
I do however know that the cute little boys in the picture belong to the lovely Natasha
It was just as good seeing old and familiar faces.
This here my friend is author Emily Wing Smith who I met last year at
The Beautiful Creatures Signing
As you can see she's a hoot and a half.
It was there we became sister soul mates of the flip-flop. I think at the next shin-dig
I see her I shall bring her ridiculous flip-flops and make her wear them---
speaking of flip-flops I was bummed Sara Zarr couldn't make it.
It truly was a treat meeting everyone and seeing old faces. I'm so lucky to be surrounded by such awesome bloggers, and lovely authors. Thank you, thank you, Thank You! (I know I'm missing many links in here for all who attended, please let me know and I'll add them)
Some memorable moments:
Suey: (pointing to me as I arrived at the social) We need to talk
Kika: (Uh oh. am I in trouble?)Are you Drew's mom? (a classmate and friend of mine)
Suey: *laughing* That's what I need to talk to you about, yes I am!
Kika: (phew, not in trouble) No way, that's so funny!
(me thinking in my head a conversation with Drew--- "Oh hey Drew! yeah I'm friends with your mom. We actually go to awesome book bloggy shin-digs together cool huh?"
----Drew looking at me as if I'm crazy. "Nice, so you hang out with my mom. . . ")
- Talking with Myke about all his fun adventures, the Polynesian culture, and of course the hilarious church meeting he went to.
- Meeting Kim and finally being able to put a physical face to her lovely blog---and also playing with her kids
- Everyone Admiring Debbie's cards---that were truly lovely.
- Everyone trying and failing to pronounce Britt's Book Habitue and then doing a double take whenever she did pronounce it right.
