It’s June tomorrow! Finally, the weather has turned, it’s even a bit warmer than usual. Yay! I thought it would be August before the snow would melt. I can barely remember the 8000 feet of snow I shovelled just a couple of months ago. Humans have such short memories. If we didn’t everyone here would have moved to Florida by now.
Anyway, I have not read much this week. I’ve been puttering around outside while I can. I’ve been playing with my camera and some new filters I bought. I was going to write about trying to read Colette’s The Pure and the Impure but that turned into a whole ‘nother post.
I did change my blog header. I’m going to live with it for a bit and see how I like it. I might have to change my blogger icon since it doesn’t match anymore. Psst, over there ------->
The following isn’t meant to rain on anyone’s parade. Just some observations I had.I was going to put up a few posts at the end of last week, but I thought they would get lost in the plethora of Armchair BEA posts. The odd things is… I didn’t see that many of those posts in my Bloglovin feed. I could count them on one hand. What happened? Was there a lack of interest within my group of book blogger peeps? Maybe they hadn’t heard that Armchair BEA was happening this year. I only knew because someone tweeted about it. From the look of the webpage, it doesn’t seem to have as many participants this year as some of the years before.
Perhaps this is just a product of the ebb and flow of the internet. Some events lose their novelty after awhile. As for myself, I didn’t participate because I felt like I didn’t have anything to say. I am interested to read about some of the events at BEA that were posted on the Armchair BEA site.
There also seemed to be fewer people in Twitter feed attending the Book Expo this year. This may have just been a product of my Twitter purging though.
Book Friends, did you attend BEA or participate in Armchair BEA this year? If not, was it lack of interest, scheduling issues, you weren’t aware of it, or forgot? I’m curious.
