The ALA Midwinter Report

Hey everyone! I wanted to share a little of my wonderful experience with all of you from the ALA Midwinter Conference. This was my very first time attending a book related conference and this was such an eye opening experience. I met so many new interesting people and saw some amazing things.

First and foremost I want to thank Yara @ Once Upon A Twilight for not only becoming one of my best blogging buddies in this community but for also inviting and encouraging me to attend this conference. As you all may have heard that tragedy struck back home in Houston while we were in Dallas. Yara's home caught home fire not once but twice and she lost many irreplaceable items but the good news it that her family was not in the house and they were found relatively unharmed. If you would like to help, and every little bit counts, there are links in set up in this POST for donations.

On a happier note Yara, Sabrina @ YA Bliss and I came back home with tons of new books and we had a great time. We attended the blogger/Author dinner hosted by Jenn @ I Read Banned Books. Which was super awesome and I was introduce to some great blogger, authors, and librarians. I got new contacts in the publishing community some a whole lot nicer that others and I would encourage you all to try to attend any book conference to broaden your network.

Here are some pictures for your viewing pleasure..

Just FYI my next post will have some giveaway info for the some copies of ARC that I picked up at ALA.

  1. That's really cool! I love the pictures, I wish I lived near Texas, but sadly I live no where near there.
