Books, bloggers and a bit of bubbly…

Pink bubbly - bookthingo.com.auWe’re having a book blogger/tweeter/online lurker meet up!

If you’re in any way involved with or interested in the online Australian book community, you’re invited to come along to our first get together.

Whether you’re a blogger, tweeter, Facebook fan, Goodreads user, regular commenter, irregular commenter, lurker or a friend of a friend of a lurker … we’d love to talk books with you. In person. Preferably with cocktail in hand. My hand. (Yours too, if wish.)

Authors, publishers, editors, booksellers, librarians, reviewers and readers are all welcome. The more the merrier!

When: Thu, 24 March from 6pm
Where: Arthouse Hotel (275 Pitt St, Sydney)
Who: Book bloggers, tweeters, Facebookers, Goodreaders and anyone else who hangs around the book communities online

Dress code applies after 5.30pm. See the website for details.

If you’re interested in coming along, we would love it if you RSVP here.

We haven’t booked an area at the Arthouse (because that requires a deposit), so if there are any last-minute venue changes, we will post it on Twitter. If you include a mobile number in your RSVP, we’ll send you a text message on the night.

Thanks to the ladies at The Adventures of an Intrepid Reader (Marg), Book Bites (Jacq) and Fangtastic (Ali and Rosie) for helping to organise this event.

If you’re coming along to the meet-up, let us know in the comments. And just for fun, if you were to create a bookish cocktail, what would it be?

    what a great idea! I would love to come, but am in Melbourne…. (This is possibly good. Who knows how long we would need to talk about Vishous?) Maybe next time.

    Hmmmm. Bookish cocktail. *channels Heston Blumenthal* I reckon it would have cinnamon and cloves, a peaty whisky with just a splash of something warm and fruity, like peach schnapps. Haha, would probably be yuk! :-)

    Anna, I think Marg will be organising a Melbourne meet-up in a few months’ time. I’ll post details when they’re confirmed.

    Mmm…cloves! Your cocktail sounds a bit like a hot toddy. :D

  3. Oooh, I was hoping someone would organise one of these for Sydney! I’m thinking about coming but I’m a little worried I won’t know anyone and that everyone will be way older than me (not that that’s a bad thing, but still).

What do you think?
