I met a book blogger!!!!

A few weeks ago, Alex from The Sleepless Reader mentioned that she too lives in Brussels. I'm excited to now tell you that we managed to meet up and have lunch.

So. much. fun.

Alex is the first book blogger I meet in real life. It was so wonderful to be able to talk about the blogosphere, about the various people who blog, about the books that no one else has heard of. It was slightly strange as well, almost as if my blogging didn't properly exist before and now that whole world belongs to reality. You know?

Aside from being a fabulous lunch companion, Alex has a great blog that you should definitely check out. Head on over there and say hi! :-)

Wouldn't that be something? ;-) You better be serious!

It was fun, it reminded me of my first meeting with another Bookcrosser where you go "I know" and "exactly!" endless times :)

Meeting at Filigranes, and having lunch among the books and piano was very appropriate as well. I'm looking forward to repeating it!

Nymeth, do come! A graphic novels afficionado as yourself, must Brussels. I'llt ake you to the best shops :)

Fun!! I'd come visit you if I was in Brussels. Peter is currently on a Belgian beer kick. He'd make the trip in a heartbeat. :-)

I hope all is fabulous!!

Now I can finally say, me too! :)
It's so much fun to meet a book blogger isn't it? Glad to hear you guys were able to meet up!

I don't think I've visited Alex's blog before but will have to now.

joanna said...

Iliana - yes, I saw that you just met a whole bunch, it's so much fun!

Trish said...

Haha--I met Iliana this past weekend. ;)

How fun that you got to meet another blogger! I've only met a handful but it's neat to put a real life face with a person you know through the screen. Would love to hop over to Europe someday and meet all my blogging friends there! There are several bloggers in The Netherlands but I'm not sure where exactly they're located...
