Trish at Hey Lady! Whatcha Readin'? is organizing a "Book Blogger Retreat" for July 18 - 19. This sounded like a lot of fun to me, and when she proposed meeting here in the Rose City, I jumped right on her bandwagon. Details are available here. It sounds like it is going to be a low-key but enjoyable weekend spent visiting Powell's (the City of Books), poking around Portland, and getting to know fellow book bloggers. If you are interested, please visit H.L.W.R. and leave a comment for Trish.
