This topic is hard to write about for me because I have done almost nothing to network in the real world. I am living in a small city, a very small city, where there are few book stores and those stores have very few events. Of the events they have almost none appeal to my reading preferences. So I am fairly insular in my blogging. The one thing that I have done, once, was write a review for the local paper. I guess I never saw that as networking so much as a favorite to a friend.
One thing to take away from ABEA this year, is more news reviews and sometimes we need to step away from the computer and step into the world.
Ideas so far from reading other posts:
- Meetups for readers
- Book Retreat
