WOW!!! Great work girls! Thank you for spreading the book blogger word around for us all.


Sounds like it was a terrific panel, and I'm glad to hear it was so well received! Kudos to all for representing the blogger perspective so well, and special thanks to those who tweeted live for those of us who weren't able to listen in.


I'm so glad that it went so well! Thank you for representing all of us, ladies, and I agree with Ali, thanks so much to those who tweeted so if we couldn't be there, we could still hear what was going on!

Lisa Munley

Thanks to all who represented us! I followed the tweets but am looking forward to listening to the whole thing on Blog Talk Radio Tuesday!


I'm so glad to hear what a success the Blogger panel was! Thanks to all who represented the book blogger community. I appreciated the live tweets as well and look forward to listening to the panel discussion.


This pannel sounded amazing - I wish I was there! As a book blogger, i'm so happy it was a success. Thanks for making it happen! (And for the live tweets!)

Ruth @ Bookish Ruth

I so wish I could have been there. Great job guys, thanks for representing all of us!

Dawn - She Is Too Fond Of Books

Huge thanks to Book Club Girl and HarperCollins for allowing me to sit on the panel and represent some of the book bloggers in this wonderful community!

We are greatly diverse, but I believe we touched upon a number of issues that will apply to the majority.

It was a great experience which should benefit all of us - bloggers, publishers, authors, READERS!


The panel was fantastic! I was so proud of how well the bloggers represented us. It was wonderful to meet you!

Traci Green

I'm so glad that this has been a reality. Thanks for respresenting book bloggers! I can't wait to hear/read the discussion. The live tweets were great and really had me excited. I'll have to plan for it next year :)

Jean Naggar

The Bloggers Panel at BEA was a delight! Grateful thanks to all who participated. The energy and passion for books reminded me why I have worked for over 40 years in publishing and never been bored! There was also so much useful information. I am the founder of the Jean V. Naggar Literary Agency, and after 32 years as an agent, I have just had my own first book, a memoir of the vanished world of an unusual childhood, published: SIPPING FROM THE NILE, My Exodus From Egypt. I think it would make a great topic for book club discussion and would be happy to send a review copy if you are interested. I would also be happy to participate in book club discussions in person or by phone. You can Google either of the hats I wear!

Thanks so much to Jennifer for moderating the panel and allowing me to be a part of this great discussion. I was watching the audience and was so happy to see much nodding and note taking going on. I hope we represented the entire blogging community.

Serena (Savvy Verse & Wit)

The panel was fantastic!

Extraordinary—listened to the audio this morning over at My Friend Amy. Many congratulations.


Thanks for all of the great information and it's such fun to be able to listen to the panel. I'm just venturing into the blogosphere myself so this is really helpful!

The panel discussion was awesome. It was great to hear what bloggers really want. Perfect information for our members. Thank you!

It was wonderful to met you! Thank you so much for putting the panel together. It was a joy to attend. :-)

Joanna K, Annick Press

That was a lively panel and it could have gone on for a lot longer! I enjoyed putting faces to names, and I had a few "aha!" moments. I look forward to working more with book bloggers 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.
