Book Festivals

The Louisiana Book Festival is this weekend in Baton Rouge. I held on to the two invitations I received for a couple of months before admitting that there really was no way I could attend as I was committed to a wedding (which I DO want to attend, just wish the two events were not conflicting). It would have been the perfect way to enjoy family and books as I could have stayed with Erin and played with the grandkids.

Booklogged, on the other hand, is going to make a Book Festival in Salt Lake City this weekend!

Finished Beneath the Skin and will look for other Nicci French books. Now reading The Light Years and The Book Thief. I have Atwood's Alias Grace and The Stolen Child on standby.


  1. I'll be starting Book Thief tonight. I've only got about 10 pages left in my current book.

  2. SuziQ, I'm just getting started and will not have much time for reading this weekend, but I'm looking forward to this one. :)

  3. I NEED to read Elizabeth Jane Howard. Several have told me to, but I just can't manage to get her to the top of the pile.

    I loved Alias Grace, by the way, and look forward to hearing what you think of it. I'm an Atwood fan.

  4. Oh! I wish I would have known about the Louisiana Book festival. It would have been a good excuse for me to come home. Go Tigers!

  5. When we got to Salt Lake on Friday we went to Barnes and Noble and I carried The Book Theif around with me for the whole time. At the last minute I put it back on the shelf, telling myself I would check for a used copy online. I knew I would need to have money for books at the festival. Such immense self control.

  6. Lisa, I'm enjoying The Light Years, but it is a big 'un with lots (& lots) of characters. I'm an Atwood fan,too, and can't wait to get to Alias Grace.

    Sheri, are you from B.R.? How 'bout dem Tigers?!

    booklogged, :) So you bought...what? Come on, give it up, Cheya. What did you bring home with you?
