I was pretty nervous and shy...I am, after all, a pretty new book blogger, and there were so many awesome bloggers and authors who I knew would be there. In the end, though, I didn't need to be so nervous. Everyone was so nice! I loved getting to meet so many new people, and also meeting a few in real life, who I had met online. There were even a few people who knew me by my name, which was surprising and very flattering (oh my gosh, you made my day!). And boy, did I come home with the biggest list of books to read, new authors to check out, and new blogs to visit! My only regret is that I didn't put myself out there and get to know everyone. Next time I won't be so shy!
Awesome fact: Did you know Utah is home to many authors? I don't have an exact number (does anyone else have a number?), but this is a running list on Goodreads of books by Utah authors. I'm sure you've heard of at least a few of them.
Another awesome fact: Did you know that Utah is home to over 80 book bloggers? That's something I learned last night, and I think it's pretty cool. Most of them were at the social. It was fantastic! This is how I am keeping track of them: a list of the Utah book community's Twitter feeds (including book bloggers and authors), put together by Natasha from Maw Books Blog.
Thanks Utah book community. You rock!!
