Or I could talk about donating my ARCs and other YA books to my local library and hearing them exclaim over the contents of the bag and how excited they are about giving it away for the summer reading program!
Or the local book club I am slowly building. It's so much fun to connect with other women, even if the vast majority of the time, we talk about other things. What brings us together is a desire to find time for books in our lives.
What I'm getting at is it doesn't have to be some big interaction with the community or a huge event - and it doesn't even have to involve your blog. Reading is a connection that can create friendships in unlikely places and form bonds between strangers met online (oh blogger meet-ups, you are my favorite) or strangers met in real life. If you haven't made a "real life" connection, take a book out in public and read it. Or talk to someone who's reading. There's something about that book (or kindle or other reading device) that can bring people together. Try it!
What are your favorite real life bookish interactions?
