105 Ways to Give a Book

Nap Time!

I am hoping to write about KidLitCon later, but for now, a nap is in order. Quickly, I can say that it was amazing, wonderful, fun, educational, and many more positive adjectives. I am looking forward to reading everyone else’s posts, so I thought I’d leave this one as a placeholder — as you write about KidlitCon, leave the link in the comments and I’ll do a roundup later in the week.

Thanks to everyone who spoke, who helped, and who came. I had a great time with all of you and can’t wait to do it again...

Oh, hold up! I meant that I can totally wait to do it again. In a good way.

I have spent the past hour passing on information about how much I got out of the KidLit conference to various friends and listservs. Most of us writers don't seem to yet realize social media means much more than writing a blog post. The conference proved that to me.

Thanks it was great. Enjoy your nap!

Joan Holub said...

Pam, I hope you enjoy your nap as much as I did the conference! Thanks for your hard work in putting the KidLitCon '09 together. Great hotel; great speakers, topics, panelists; and great fun meeting and mingling.

Abby said...

Awesome, awesome, awesome! Had such a great time, learned a lot, and came away inspired to blog my little heart out. Thanks again for all your hard work, Pam!

You earned a week's worth of naps. I wish I could come up with a word better than "awesome," but it SO fits. Although there are lots of free books at other conferences, KidLitCon offers an energy and esprit d'corps that can't be beat. Here's the first post: http://childrens-literacy.com/2009/10/18/kidlitcon09-thanks-for-the-memories/

The rest will trickle out as homework assignments.

Thanks for such a wonderful time! Will be thinking and processing for a while. My final thoughts for now, however...

Can't wait to hear about it!

Sondy at Sonderbooks said...

Definitely an awesome conference, Pam! I needed rest before I could post, too. Hoping to post something tonight after work.

Melissa said...

You are AWESOME, Pam. (I should have gotten here sooner, but things are a bit nuts around here.) Thanks so much for the fabulous experience all around.

Here's my roundup. (Just so you know, making here the link just made me cringe. Kind of, anyway.)

Hurrah for naptime! You did a great job and you've earned a good long rest. I have a couple of posts planned, but here's the first one. Confessions of a Bibliovore: KidlitCon: Overview Part One.

Hmmm. I feel like there are too many colons in that. Oh well.

Gregory K. said...

I want to toss in my kudos, too, Pam. It was fabulous! I can't even imagine the hours spent organizing, but from this outside-the-beltway guy's perspective, it sure paid off: everything ran smoothly, the mood was great, and there was fun and knowledge flying everywhere. Hats off to you!

jama said...

Thanks SO much for everything you did to make the conference possible, Pam! As Greg said, everything went smoothly and there was lots of information, ideas, and inspiration for the taking.
