I was thinking that it might be nice for those bloggers who are Weekly Geeks to pay tribute to Dewey in the next week or so. To take the time to post to their blogs a "Weekly Geek" post about Dewey--maybe share their favorite posts from her site, maybe share a memory or two about participating in weekly geeks, the bookworms carnival, the 24 Hour Readathon, or one of Dewey's challenges, maybe just share a favorite memory of Dewey in general, what they'll miss most, how they'll remember her, etc. I'm going to try to post mine this Saturday--but bloggers anywhere and everywhere are encouraged to post whenever they want.

If you're interested please SPREAD the word to all your blogging friends.

I think the best testament to all that is dewey is the book blogging community coming together to carry on her good works

Oh my dear sweet Trish, I just had to come over and thank you for the beautiful words you left on my blog. You have no idea how much you touched my heart! I've been having a really hard time saying much to other people the past few days. Not because I didn't want to, but just because I felt so inadequate at putting my feelings into words. But I have to say that along with the intense sadness I've been feeling, I've also been feeling such love and such gratitude for what this silly little book blogging world has brought me. And by that, I mean people like you. People that I treasure. I guess because I loved Dewey so much and never came out and actually said those words to her (though I like to think she knew anyway), I’ve been feeling this overwhelming need to make sure I don’t make that mistake again. So Trish, let me just say it right now...I love you, and I absolutely treasure your friendship! (((HUGS)))

BIG GIANT HUGS TO YOU ALL.

I'm glad that Dewey will be remembered and that some of her legacy will continue to live in our community.

Thank you all for your support and love over the past year and a half (or however long we've known one another).

I just found out, it is hard to believe she is really gone. The impact on the book blogging world is deep.
