In Which We Are Thankful for Friends and Books and Bookish Friends

In lieu of a Top Ten Tuesday (as always hosted by the awesome The Broke and the Bookish) post re: which authors we are thankful for we are taking a moment to be thankful for authors bringing us together. (And, well, John Green. DFTBA).

A Gmail excerpt from Grad Student and Goosie Mama:
Grad Student: Oh wait, did I buy us tickets? (subject line)
http://penguinteen.tumblr.com/post/35847766215/john-and-hank-green-an-evening-of-awesome-at-carnegieYes, yes I did.
Goosie Mama: Wait - seriously????!!!! OH MY GOSH!!!!!!!!!!!
GMI use this term sparingly so you know when I use it, it means something: AMAZEBALLS!!!!!!!
The important things to take away from this conversation. 1. We have gotten rid of normal letter/email etiquette and sentence structure entirely. 2. We are going to see John and Hank Green in January because that is what friends who love books do together.

In the words of Mark Twain "Good friends, good books, and a sleepy conscience: this is the ideal life." (HA! M.T. so sassy). That pretty well sums up our feelings about this blog and each other (and book blogs in general.) Hope everyone has time to enjoy and appreciate the holidays. Happy Thanksgiving!
