Thank you all for such a wonderful chat! I got a little lagged out there at the end so I'll have to catch up on the transcript.

Oh, no! I'm sorry I missed this chat. Sounds like it was fun--I'll have to read the transcript!

WOW. I was glad to read other commenters finding it a whirlwind chat - i was afraid that it was me and i just wasn't getting it. For my first chat ever, it was awesome - what a fast hour. *checks off list of techie media thingies* Thank you to readergirlz for hosting and the authors for sharing their stories.

OK, Lisa McMann's books are on my list. I have heard of Geektastic. I will watch for the other ones. Great chat-this ones not as long as the others.

:( I wish I could've made the chat live, though at least I can still read it now :)

emsjuarez said...

I loved the chat and getting to know the authors a bit better. (and finding out I had won something from the previous night wasn't bad at all either) Loved all of the chats last week! I hope I can continue coming to the life chats in the future ~Emma
