How Mary Became A Book Nerd and Mary's Personal Thanks To Her Fellow Book Nerds

Flo, Teri, Jacque and Mary
WOW! We are almost 2 years old! I cannot believe it! If you had told me 2 years ago that Book Nerds Across America would have been this successful I would have said "No Way!"

Let me tell you the story of how this started, because I don't think I actually have ever told this story (haha).  It all started with Twitter and Mockingjay! (#Truth) I had just purchased Mockingjay and was tweeting about it when @FloeticFlo began talking to me about the book.  She was a Peeta-girl and I am a Haymitch-girl, but it was love at first book (or Tweet)!

Soon after that Flo and I began talking ALL THE TIME! We found out that we had so much in common.  We loved books, New Kids on the Block (even though she is a Joe-girl *eye roll* and I am a Donnie-girl *swoon*) and traveling.  It was not long after that when we both became members of Down With The Captiol. This lead me to an idea of starting a blog about books and I wanted to start one with Flo.  After contacting her about the idea she was on board.  We called each other Book Nerds and "Across America" just came to us because, well, we live in different states.  (I didn't say it was rocket science! haha).

I never imagined that we would add more to our group but soon after that Flo and I invited Jacque and Teri to be Book Nerds with us.  Since starting this site I have met more incredible people.  From authors, other bloggers and traveling to amazing conventions this has been the greatest time in my life.  I don't think I can imagine my life without my three dearest Book Nerds.

This is my thank you to them.

Flo:  It is so strange that you and I think alike so much but at the same time it is great!  I can count on you day and night, no matter the issue.  You are so kind, sweet and a very dear friend.  I truly cannot imagine my life without you!  I hope that you know how dear you are to me and I truly love you Book Nerd!

Jacque:  I don't think I have ever told you that you are an incredible person! You have truly enriched my life. I am so happy to call you  my friend.  I have seen you go through RN school, be the greatest mother ever and I have seen you trying to steal my fictional boyfriend Edward Cullen (that's okay, though, I don't mind sharing).  I am so glad that we have become such good friends and cannot wait to see what the future holds for us!

Teri: Girl, you crack me up! I love your sense of humor and you have shown me some of the greatest music that I would have never known before.  Yes, I am talking about the Arctic Monkeys!  I can't imagine my life without your funny comments and amazing FaceBook pics *hehe* You have always been there for me and I will always be grateful.  I love ya, girl!!
