Great wrap-up, Josh!

Yes, many people I've "talked" with online wish we could have been there, to chat with you, other authors, the connectors and facilitators you mention, bloggers, and all the other folks involved in book groups.

What kept me from attending was plain and simple home life (kids!). I'll start planning for next year's BGE as soon as I know the time and place ... I'll be working on Mary Poppins or even Nanny McPhee to give me a few days respite :)


What a great post! I haven't read Matrimony yet (it's in my pile, patiently waiting) but I think Josh is great since he's so supportive of us bloggers!


What a fantastic post! Thanks for the book recommendations too because as you know, us books bloggers are always looking for our next read.

Great post! I'm so enjoying all the Expo recaps. I've been wanting to go ever since the very first event three years ago, but it's a heck of a hike from the East Coast. Free tickets and other bonuses would be a huge incentive for me to go though - and I'd be happy to represent book bloggers at the Expo! :)

Thank you so much, Josh, for this recap. You were a wonderful presence at BGE, not only in your salon, but on the floor as an available author and reader. It was great having you. I love all your suggestions and will pass them on to Kathi and Ann for our usual post-BGE pow-wow in which we talk about all the things we can do to make the event better. In response to Ti's lament about being too far away from San Jose to attend -- gosh, I hope we can do an Expo on the East Coast very soon!

Who is Book Club Girl?

  • Book Club Girl is: a member of a book club and an avid reader who spent most of her childhood immersed in a book, an English major who considered library school until she realized it was all about computers, so turned to publishing, where she now works (but she vows to talk about books from all over and not to simply flog those from her own house). She was single, lived in the city, met a man, moved to the 'burbs, and is now a wife, a stepmother, a mother, and in her spare time, a fledgling blogger dedicated to sharing great books, news and tips with book club girls everywhere.

My Review Policy

  • I review fiction and nonfiction that is appropriate for book clubs. This includes literary and some women's commercial fiction as well as memoir and narrative nonfiction. I do not review self-help, thrillers, mysteries, horror, or fantasy. I have a fondness for YA literature and while the blog is not devoted to it (well, except for my obsession with the Betsy-Tacy series), I will occasionally review some YA books. The best way to reach me to request a review is to email me at bookclubgirl AT gmail DOT com.
