New York, New York!

New York City Skyline


I'll be spending my summer in New York this year!  Got the official offer letter today and will be accepting by the end of the week.  I know there are TONS of book bloggers in the New York area, so if you're there and available, let me know and we can meet up :-)  I'll be there from after Memorial Day to mid-August.  So excited for a summer of fun in the Big Apple!

  1. Welcome to the Big Apple!

    I know Utah did a book blogger meetup this past weekend - I think NYC needs to do one (outside of Book Blogger Con), too!

  8. Thanks, everyone! Melissa, I'll be interning in the area over the summer. I'm in business school now, so over the summer I'll be working with a company before coming back to school. I'll be in touch, for sure!

    Nymeth, Jenny was the first blogger that came to my mind :-)

  16. That's so exciting! I'm pretty sure I'll be in New York this year too, if all goes well, but I leave before you get there. Sigh.

  17. Congrats Aarti! The best time to go to the city is in the summer.. so you should enjoy it!! The one thing I regret about moving out of NY was the literary job opps.. so enjoy yourself and make yourself known!!
    There are some great bookshops there as well! Good luck!

  18. Congratulations! I hope you have a great time in New York. I'm actually kind of jealous that you get to go there, since I've wanted to visit for a really long time. ;)

  19. Congratulations...sounds like it'll be a fun summer!

  20. Have fun! Makes me wish I was still living on the east coast (well, it doesn't take much for me to wish that, I admit). Hope you'll have time to blog about your adventures this summer -- even if you only blog about it a couple times.

  21. Awesome! Congratulations, Aarti! We're so going to have to get together when you arrive!

  22. Yay, awesome news! I get up to NYC relatively often (I'm going to be there in a week and am meeting up with Nicole from Linus' Blanket and Lydia from Penguin). I'll be there for BEA in May, any chance you can sneak down a couple of days early and hang out with all of us? :-)

    Congrats! Let me know if you need any connections or recommendations

  24. Swapna- Sadly, I can't go to BEA (I definitely looked into it) because I have a wedding to attend Memorial Day weekend :-( I was pretty bummed to realize that, but hopefully you'll be up again in the summer some time! Or I can come down to DC. I have this completely baseless notion that the entire east coast is easily accessible to the rest of the east coast, though, so I could be off in my assumption that it's an easy weekend trip.

    Nicole- Absolutely! Or we could hang out :-)

    ReplyDelete
  25. And Jenny- YES, absolutely :-)

    ReplyDelete
  26. Congrats!! Wish I still lived in NYC so we could meet up. Have fun!!!
