It's October, so it must be time again for the Texas Book Festival!
Where to go first?
Let's start the weekend off right by bookcrossing a couple of dozen books.
Talent's everywhere at the Texas Book Festival.
Intriguing book title.
You can put a lot of books in this HEB cart.
Have to make a stop at the Cooking Tent.
Music Tent is always fabulous.
Several children-read-to-dogs programs.
Lots of student book clubs.
Author/illustrator Chris Raschka.

as she talks about her book Razia's Ray of Hope.
What the Texas Book Festival is really all about.

R. L. Stine...He just looks scary, I think.
The beautiful Texas Capitol.
I see this woman every year.
