TGIF! And...Happy Birthday to Me!

I'm going to let you in on a secret. Well, I guess I WISH it was a secret, but a lot of people know. Today is my birthday. Not just ANY birthday. A big one. Today I turn:


50!

My husband had a surprise party for me a couple weeks ago. TOTAL surprise. I don't feel 50. I don't want to be 50, but, what's the alternative? So, I'm celebrating, and inviting you to celebrate with me!

I love to travel, so Ginger's question was interesting to me, but DIFFICULT. I can think of a BUNCH of places that would be great.


Book Blogger Retreat: If you could gather up a handful of book blogger friends to spend a weekend away talking books, where would you go? Tell us about it.


I think I've decided on New York City. We'd go to The Strand Bookstore. We'd visit the New York Public Library. We'd go to a broadway show, and we'd have delicious dinners at wonderful restaurants and talk about books and drink wine.....Oh. Shopping....we have to fit that in somewhere...how long is this trip???

My ARC Giveaway ends SUNDAY. Check it out!

  1. Happy Birthday! I visited NYC very briefly and stopped by both of those places. The public library is incredibly beautiful and The Strand was overwhelming! I've seen so many bookshelves in all my life.

  4. Happy Birthday!!! New York would be a great place! I am attending BEA for the first time this year, and I do plan on dragging (I guess dragging might be the wrong word, most likely skipping and giggling would fit better) my blogger friends to The Strand. I am all up for some Book Blogger Retreats though!
