I found the community by browsing Good Reads, and I believe I stumbled upon Wendy @ Cupcake and Latte’s profile, I clicked on her blog address. It was literally just a moment of curiosity as to what her web site entailed, and I was happily surprised that it had book reviews.
Naturally, I wanted to join in because I’ve always been a voracious reader!
My book blog officially launched around November 2011, and I couldn’t help but wonder if I’d receive any visitors. It was around the time I lost my job, so I needed to throw myself into something productive, and booknerd.ca was born!
I’ve met authors Erin Morgenstern, Paula McLain , Ami McKay, Libba Bray, Tahereh Mafi (*fangirled to the max*), Maggie Stiefvater, Maureen McGowan, Lesley Livingston, Megan Crewe, Cheryl Rainfield, Leah Bobet, and Morghan Rhodes. (I’ve probably forgot someone..I apologize)
So wonderful since we all had the time to chat with them one-on-one and get our books signed, and I also interviewed Siobhan Vivian, and Jenny Han when they were in Toronto last summer.
Now I know this is probably the same as everyone else, but once I see a delivery truck outside my window, I squeal with excitement and do a “book nerd freak-out.” That just basically means I’m freaking out on the inside, but you can’t tell unless my eyes pop out of my head.
I feel like a kid on Christmas every time the courier comes, or I see a package in the mailbox. Books are our gifts, and I cherish each one that comes my way *pets books*
And my number one bookish memory has to be my ultimate favourite thing to do about books, sharing our love and excitement for all the stories, characters, settings, and quotes about the books we have all read. That is ultimately the best bookish memory I could ever hope for, and will continue to love and cherish.
