The Los Angeles Time Festival of Books was this weekend. It’s a 2-day event but I only attended on Saturday. What made it even more fun is that I got to hook-up with some other bloggers. We met up for some early morning refreshments and then went our separate ways to browse the tents and to attend the panels. Some of us met-up for dinner too. It was a really fun day.
You see that stack above? That’s what I ended up buying.
Zeitoun by Dave Eggers (attended his discussion and I am reading this book for book club next month)
Tinkers by Paul Harding (attended a panel that had him on it and he just recently won the Pulitzer Prize for Fiction)
In Defense of Food by Michael Pollan (those that know about my battle with food allergies won’t be surprised to find this on my shelf)
Pride and Prejudice by Jane Austen (I’ve never read Austen, and a few of you on Facebook insisted I read this one first)
I’ll share additional pictures and more information on the panels within a separate post. After a particularly bad allergic reaction, I actually lost my hearing yesterday so that post will have to wait. It’s back now but I’m still a bit out of it.
This week I am reviewing The Queen of Palmyra and there will be another installment for Wuthering Heights Wednesday. The rest if up in the air at the moment. I am actively reading First They Killed My Father. It’s great, but tough to read due to the subject matter.
Hope your Sunday is treating you well.
