Last weekend was a book filled weekend. I went to see Chef Michael Smith on Saturday at the Kitchener Market. It was lots of fun. I wasn’t able to stay for the book signing as my son got sick, but I did enjoy the talk and demonstration. All I can say is wow, that man is tall.

Sunday was Word on the Street. I stayed in Kitchener, again, and this year I was disappointed. There wasn’t much to see or do other than the author talks. I saw 3 authors, Lillian Nattel (Web of Angels), Ian Hamilton (The Red Pole of Macau) and Brad Smith (Crow’s Landing). I got Brad’s autograph on Crow’s Landing and he complimented my nails. It was great.

I did meet one local author, AC Miller and picked up two of her books. I hope to have her here for an interview soon.

I also met up with Erika (from Suddenly Books and One A Day YA). We chatted and browsed the used library book sale table. It was fun, although we were both commiserating about sick kids, which is not so much fun. Nothing like escaping for a book even though.

Books read:
PhoenixIt took me while, but I finally finished, and even though it seemed to take forever, I did enjoy the story.

Books received:
I got a great haul at Word on the Street. Three signed books from the authors, and three used library books that cost me $0.30 total.
