Saturday Snapshot

Saturday Snapshot is hosted by Alyce of At Home With Books.  It’s easy to participate – just post a picture that was taken by you, a friend, or a family member and add your link on Alyce’s site.   Photos can be old or new, and be of any subject as long as they are clean and appropriate for all eyes to see. How much detail you give in the caption is entirely up to you. Please don’t post random photos that you find online.

I came across some printed photographs the other day and thought, “Where are these?”  I checked my external drive – couldn’t find them, checked the hard drive on my PC, couldn’t find him – ditto with my laptop hard drive.  Finally found a DVD I had burned the pics too, and transferred them to my external.  *shew*  Wonder how many more pictures I need to transfer!  One of my biggest fears is losing pictures!

These were taken Mother’s Day, 2008 in Dallas at the Texas Discovery Gardens.  I don’t know what kind of flowers most of these are, but if you know, I’d love for you to tell me!

See the Spider?

The fountains

Hope you’re having a wonderful weekend!

Armchair BEA – 2012 – Networking about Books

Armchair BEA is for book bloggers who can’t attend Book Expo America and the Book Blogger Convention in New York this June (June 4 – 8, 2012).  So we don’t have to miss all the fun – this virtual convention is the place to be!

Have you ever wondered how bloggers get so involved outside the nuts & bolts community of book blogging? Well, now’s your chance to learn from the experts! From partnering with their local indie bookstores to coordinating events at their local libraries, we’ve got tips to share with you to help you become more involved with your local bookish community.  Guest post from top bloggers (Emily from Emily’s Reading Room, Tif from Tif Talks Books and Pam from Bookalicious) about how they were able to work together with their local bookish community to benefit everyone involved.
I don’t feel like I have a lot of experience to talk about with regard to meeting other book bloggers, (which I hope to change in the future) but I have a favorite author signing to share.  I always try to read the books that my daughter is assigned in school so we can talk about them.  She was assigned the book Sixty-Eight Rooms by Marianne Malone, and the author came to her school to answer questions about her book.  That was exciting, but it was even more exciting to be able to meet Ms. Malone one-on-one at our local bookstore and have her sign the book, answer individual questions my daughter and her bestie had, and pose for a picture with them.  Such a great experience for my budding book lover!
Here’s a picture of my lil’ heart with the author.
