Parajunkee is hosting a Book Blogger New Year's Challenge to start 2014 off on a good note! I may not be able to participate every day, but will do my best to visit everyone else!
Day 8: Your Favorite Book Blogger Moment
This was a tough one, as I have several moments that stand out for me: the first comment I received, my first follower, the first time I received a review request...so many good memories! But I think that my favorite-favorite moment was the first time I attended BEA (Book Expo America).
From the moment I applied and wasn't rejected (checked my emails for two weeks!), to actually getting my badge (expected them to say it was a mistake and I couldn't come in), to walking in the door on the first day; it was book heaven! I was giddy, and actually felt like a kid in a candy store! Totally star-struck upon meeting real, live authors! Knowing that I was surrounded by people who loved books as much as I did! Being amazed that yes, people were actually handing me books and the only thing they were asking was that I read and review it. Wowza! Feeling like Dorothy in the Land of Oz is a memory that I'll treasure forever. :)
