Table Talk Tuesday

Cmash Loves to Read”=

It is time again for Table Talk Tuesday! Welcome to TABLE TALK TUESDAY hosted by Cheryl at CMash Loves to Read. I missed last week because I had it in my mind that it was Table Talk Thursday - very, very close! OK, so this week is Book Blogger Appreciation Week and that is very exciting, so my conversation tidbits will be about BBAW. But first let me answer CMash's questions.
CMash's conversation tidbits:
1. Do you have any special plans for this week?

I stay super busy most weeks, but this week I am trying to set aside some time to read as many BBAW related posts as possible. This is coming on the heels of what was probably a very successful Blogfest (which I did not sign up for because I am slow!)

2. It's that time of year, do you get a flu shot?

Absolutely - even with the flu shot last year I was one of the lucky Floridians who managed to get the Swine Flu - working in a library, I think we are offered every possible bug every day!

3. What are you reading this week?

I am reading A Call from Jersey by P.F. Kluge - which I love so far.

Now here are my thoughts and questions:

1. I am in love with BlogFest and BBAW - I mean seriously book bloggers are the greatest people. How have you participated? I did an interview with one person for each of my blogs - here are the links: Sophisticated Dorkiness and Age 30+ - A Lifetime of Books
Both are phenomenal bloggers so I hope you will check out the interviews and visit their blogs.

2. Tell me how you found out about BlogFest - did you participate? Do you know any bloggers in real life? How did you meet? I would love to meet with real people just once!

3. Do you ever participate in the Read-a-thons? If yes, how many hours of 24 do you actually read? Do you significant others understand this insanity? I have not participated but I would love to, so I am thinking about Dewey's Readathon.

Hope you have a wonderful week! I've enjoyed my cup and cake with you this morning!

Good to see you again!!
1. This was the first time participating in BlogFest (wasn't a blogger last year) and had a blast particpating, hopping around to meet new bloggers, add to my blogroll. Can't wait for the nest one!!
2. I remember seeing it on Lori from Dollycas's Thoughts' blog and her talking about it. Checked in to it and signed me up. Sounded like fun and it sure was.
3. I have tried to do the read-a-thons, but the other non-reading people in this house don't understand the concept so never even come close to my goals. I was going to sign up for the Dewey Read-A-Thon especially now that we are official empty nesters, but am so disappointed because we have a wedding that weekend. I wish the bride/goom had checked lol there are priorities lol.
Great conversational topics. Hope to see you next week.

I've only gotten 2 flu shots, but plan to again this year.

Do you live anywhere near Daytona Beach? There's a book trade show there later this month.

No, I live in Pensacola. I wish I were closer - that would be such fun.

This was my first Blogfest. I saw this icon on someone's blog and clicked on it and signed up. I'll definitely be doing that again!

I do know some bloggers in real life. I saw a post on someone's blog saying they were going to have a get together in New Orleans for a book signing and they were encouraging local book bloggers to join them, so I did. I met 4 other bloggers and we went to the book signing and we had a blast.
