Catching up with online friend Dani :)
Danielle & me
Y'all know me as the world's biggest procrastinator, so it should be no surprise it took me 3 days to finally post about my meeting with online friend Danielle. I've known Dani for a few years, being on the same loops and all, but had no idea we lived so close to each other. I think we were talking about a booksigning on one of the loops when I finally figured it out. So of course after some time had passed, we were able to find some time where we were both free to have lunch.
For those of you who already know Dani, she's a total doll. I felt immediately comfortable with her, and it was a pleasure talking with someone who loves romance as much as I do. Our tastes are a little different, but there's still nothing like gushing over books with a fellow romance reader. (Just ask my Twitter pimps, er, pals).
The other impressive thing about her is her incredible knowledge. The woman can run circles around me, especially when it comes to talking ebooks and ereaders and finding great bargains. I'm still locked in the 20th century and haven't been swept away by the magic of the ebook reader, but if I ever find myself yearning to buy one, Dani is going to be my go-to girl. She does her homework and knows more than I would even think to ask. After lunch we had hit the nearby B&N, where the upcoming Nook was being featured. It was obvious she knew more than the salesperson, an older gentleman who probably didn't know any more about ereaders than I did.
That day I bought 6 books, 4 in the Jeaniene Frost series of which I took a picture of with my new phone, but it came out too small for some reason. (Once I figure it out, I might try posting it again). I also bought 2 by Simone Elkeles since I'm a bit infatuated with YA after reading her "Perfect Chemistry".
After that we parted ways, but what a fun way to spend the afternoon. We made plans to catch up in a few months, after the craziness of the holidays settles down. I never tire of catching up with online friends, especially those who love romance, since none of my RL friends do, outside of the Twilight series, which I'll be honest, just doesn't cut it. Can't wait to do it again.
Thank you Dani, for a wonderful day spent talking books, bargains, and ebook readers :)
How far would you travel to meet your online friends?
