A new adventure happening June 9 and 10

What is new and off the beaten path in Silicon Valley?

It is the book group expo ... something new in San Jose. Well, it is not new, this is the "SECOND CHAPTER." June 9 and 10, 2007

Where: San Jose Convention Center - downtown San Jose - capital of Silicon Valley

Book group exp .... it is everything that book lovers want. And, you do not have to be a book lover to enjoy. A Warning to everyone: you may become a book lover should you indulge. It is a great discovery!

Unique salons to visit with the authors, a fabulous marketplace and more! Okay, there is chocolate. Inside sources tell me that books and chocolate go hand in hand.

Did you miss the interview with Khaled Hosseini (author of "A Thousand Splendid Suns" and "The Kite Runner") on Good Morning America?

Not to worry, see him in person on Friday evening, June 8 (advance tickets only) purchase now.

And, while you are at it... purchase the whole weekend of tickets. Then just go and have fun. How cool is this?

This is simply a fabulous good 'ol fashion fun experience.

Am I part of the book group expo? I was not at first, it is very addicting and easy to fall in with this great group of people. NO, I do not get compensation for writing this blog post - I do get to see you at the expo (smile).

Remember, I always say in my articles, "something is always happening in Silicon Valley" and there is. The "book group expo"! The talk around town!

Watch for more of my "off the beaten path" posts, and you may see my monthly column in the Valley Access e-magazine for Silicon Valley Concierge Association and Women's Connection Magazine. Until my next post, keep smiling ...and yes, comments are always welcome. Let me hear from you - or better yet, I will see you at the book group expo in San Jose June 8, 9, 10.
