NW Book Festival and New Books To My Shelf

Book Modeling. It's totally a thing.
Last Saturday I attended the 7th annual NW Book Festival in downtown Portland. As luck would have it, it was the first weekend in twelve weeks that Portland had seen rain. But being that I've lived the Pacific Northwest my entire life, doing things in the rain is something I'm quite used to. Thanks to fellow writer and friend, Victoria Lindstrom, we had a canopy with walls to protect us. Thanks again, Vic!

I met loads of new people and I look forward to attending next year.

Oh look, there's Blue. How did he get in there?

I did not leave empty handed, and both of these books were written by authors local to me! I got to meet Margaret at the festival and I came home with this gem. Dulci's Legacy is a YA mystery and I cannot wait to dive in it. And of course I can never go downtown without visiting Powell's City of Books. There I walked away with The Daughter of Smoke and Bone. It's been on my TBR shelf for years and I found for only $5.00. What a deal.

  1. Hey! Surprise feature of DL- thanks, Kriston! I think I actually have a hardcover of TDoSaB from my last book swap. Obviously, we share good taste. ;-) Great meeting you in the downpour!
