Today's suggested writing topic:
"We'd love for you to share a positive "real life" experience with books! Either by way of your own partnerships in your community, a book signing you went to or possibly even a get together with fellow book bloggers."
Unfortunately my work and studies before made it hard for me to create any sort of real-life acquaintances with other book bloggers, and I haven't attended a book signing *sigh*. Though I am the sort of person who lives vicariously. I love to read posts of other bloggers of their experience in meeting authors, other book bloggers, and book signings.
Though every experience I have with books are always positive. :) I created a sort of friendship with the people at my local bookstore. They know me by name and make sure I have the books I reserve or pre-order from them. The bookstore is sort of my haven, especially when I am feeling a bit detached.
And reading books have been therapeutic for me. Even just by surrounding myself with books with really a good way to ease tension.
I also have close friends whom I share book thoughts with. We give books as gifts. :) And I must send a shout-out to emma_kate, one of the first few book lovers I met online thru a forum.
Hopefully in time I can attend a book signing or book event, or even meet fellow book bloggers! In BEA perhaps? *wink* But right now I have to make best of what I have, and so far it's really lovely. :)
