Fellow book bloggers, I have an idea…

After last week’s awesome party with HarperImpulse and getting to meet some of my fellow book bloggers, one thing really stuck out for me:  we’re a pretty isolated bunch.  Many of us don’t get to interact in real life with other bloggers/book lovers and most of our friends are “normal” and manage 2-3 books a month to our 8-9 which means when we’re not working or doing our day jobs, we’re reading.

And if they’re anything like me, they have a tough time making friends in real life and being social.

So here’s what I’m thinking.

Let’s have a party.  A Christmas/choose your winter holiday party with drinks and food and festivities and merriment.  And books.  It doesn’t have to be anything huge or grandiose… we could even have it in a pub.

I just think it would be really nice to meet more of you lovely people, particularly the other writers at Judging Covers.

What does everyone think?  Would you want to come?

If you’re interested, drop me a line and I’ll start planning.  If not, I can always sit in the pub by myself (as usual, with a book).

Also, I’m thinking of doing a Secret Santa thing, via the post for anyone who wants to participate but can’t make it to London.  The idea would be to gift a used book of your own that you’d like to share with another blogger.  If you’re interested in taking part in that as well, please email me!

Let’s make this happen!


If you’re interested in getting in touch, tweet me at @stephanie_khani or @londondiaries1.  Alternatively you can email me at emailthelondondiaries [at] gmail.com.

  1. I want to come! This is a fantastic idea!! I can come up from Brighton 🙂 (I would need it to be a weekend though, otherwise I’m happy to just to a Secret Santa)

    1. Super! If I get enough interest in meeting up I’ll start looking at dates. Failing that, loads of people are interested in the Secret Santa so that’s definitely happening.

    1. I’ve had to put the party idea on hold for now as not many people are able to make it, but would you be interested in participating in the Secret Santa part?

Leave some love!
