#ArmchairBEA: Is it really over?

 It’s hard for me to resign myself with the fact that yet another Armchair BEA has come to a close.
I was not able to participate as fully this  year as I have in previous years and feel as though I missed so much.  I will be going back through and reading many of the posts for several days to come, getting to know some more of the bloggers, reading the blogging Q&A posts and just generally reminiscing about this years event.
I was only able to make one of the Twitter Chats, but I thoroughly enjoyed my time there and getting to know some new to me bloggers.  Hopefully these interactions will carry me through and I will make every effort to be a more engaged and involved blogger in this community that I have come to love.
We as book bloggers are spread throughout the world and yet each year during events like Armchair, we come together and enjoy a sense of camaraderie and community that remains unrivaled.
What were your favorite topics?  Your favorite posts?  Hidden gems that you think I might have missed and really need to check out?  Let me know in the comments.  Until next year, my friends.
