105 Ways to Give a Book

Still in Portland

Omigod, I am so tired. I had the choice of either leaving early this morning or late tonight, so I went with the red-eye back to DC. I’m not regretting the decision, as I had a wonderful day first at some waterfall that I am too lazy to look up and then in downtown Portland where I hung out with blogfriends and shopped at a street festival. But right now, I totally want to be home already. Like, now.

The conference was wonderful, and I will write more about it later. This quickie post is just to say that I was excited to meet new authors, to see some blogging friends again, and to make new blogger best friends forever. (Oh BFFs, you know who you are.) But mostly I’m writing to whine that I’ve got a long flight ahead of me and that I’m still, still in Portland.

I'm so glad you got a fun day in Portland - could the weather have been any better for you guys? Wow!

It was great to meet you and I hope your daughter likes the book. Safe travels home! Wish you could click your heels together and be there. Hey, take a couple of Tylenol PMs when you get on the plane and maybe it will work. :)

Sorry about the redeye, but glad you got to the falls! Hopefully you'll get to sleep through the flight and wake up refreshed. Yeah. I know it's a stretch.... lol.

It was great meeting you!

New BFFs? How exciting. :) While it isn't home, Portland isn't a bad place to stay for an extra day.

MR: I know, Portland is lovely, but at a certain point, enough is enough and one wants home. Just think: next year, everyone will have to travel to you for Kidlitosphere III. Clever!

It was great to meet you! I'm going to start carrying picture books around my midriff to appear more stylish and svelte. :) Just one of many great tips. Thanks, Pam!

Great to see you, Pam! Thanks for all your help and your energy. When I was writing my wrap-up, you seemed to come up every few paragraphs, so I conclude that you were kind of the spirit of the gathering. SO GLAD you could come!! See you next year!
