Back from the Texas Book Festival!


I'm back from a weekend at the Texas Book Festival in Austin. It's the first time the book festival has been held in person in three years. We had a fantastic time. I plan to post about it in a few weeks. 

It's November, and 
it's nothing but nonfiction.

I'm reading and reviewing 
as fast as I can.

Good Thing #1

It was a stunningly beautiful day in Austin 
for the Texas Book Festival
and there were lots and lots of people attending.

Good Thing #2

I volunteered on Saturday in the Read to Me Tent.
I loved hearing all the picture book authors and illustrators,
especially Jon Klassen and Mac Barnett.

Good Thing #3

Janet Evanovich!

I'm happy you joined us here at the Sunday Salon. Sunday Salon is a place to link up and to share what we have been doing during the week. It's a great way to visit other blogs and join in the conversations going on there. 

Some of the things we often talk about at the Sunday Salon:

  • What was your week like?
  • Read any good books? Tell us about them.
  • What other bookish things did you do? 
  • What else is going on in your life?
