Sad News

If you haven’t seen it already, I just read this post sharing that Dewey (The Hidden Side of a Leaf) passed away last week. I’m not really sure what to say except that this is obviously an indescribable loss for her family and friends.

It’s also a huge loss for the book blogging community.  I found and connected with most of the bloggers I read now through Weekly Geeks and the other book blogging community activities Dewey organized.  For that I owe her a huge debt of thanks and I’m deeply saddened to hear about what’s happened.  I don’t know what else to say, it’s just really sad.

If you want to contact her family or leave a message for Dewey, you can do so via her comment form.

    I just saw it. What a terrible loss for Dewey’s family. I also feel that I got to learn a bunch of new people through Dewey’s wonderful Weekly Geek posts. I also really don’t know what to say. I hope Dewey has found peace.

    Louise: When I first started my blog I did a google search of “book blogging communities” and Weekly Geeks was one of the first things that popped up. Without it I wouldn’t have found as many interesting bloggers as quickly as I did. I hope the book blogging community can come together somehow and keep these traditions going.

    Dewey created such a feeling of family within the book blogging community. She will be greatly missed 🙁
