BiblioBloggers of the World UNITE!

It seems that this is becoming a tradition.  The bibliobloggers of the world who are attending  ASOR/SBL in Atlanta, will meet together Sunday night.  The information about the meeting was posted by Dr. Robert Cargill here.

I don’t think I will be able to make it to this one, but I may try to meet the rest of the bloggers on Monday (22nd).  John Hobbins is making arrangements for those who cannot make it on Sunday night at the SEAR restaurant in the Marriott Marquis at 11:45 am.
