- Fizzy Thoughts: Calling all book freaks

Calling all book freaks

Wednesday, September 10, 2008

Sorry. You're not a book freak. You're a book lover. I'm a freak. I'm super excited, because today I bought my ticket for the...

The third annual Book Group Expo is October 25th and 26th in San Jose. That would be California, for all you non-west coast-centric bloggers out there.

Some of the authors who will be there include:
*Annie Barrows
*Brunonia Barry
*Marisa de los Santos
*Julia Glass
*Ann Packer
*Jennie Shortridge

And those are just the authors I've read. There are oodles more, including Andre Dubus III, Garth Stein, Terry McMillan, Joshua Henkin and Zoe Ferraris (has anyone read Finding Nouf yet?). Go here to see all the other authors that I left out.

So...any other freaks planning to attend?

I am filing away this tidbit for later. I don't think I can attend right now. That weekend is not good for me but if something changes I may try to. That would be so much fun!

Wow. That sounds fun. I'm in Alameda so it's even possible. Hmmmm....

In a real sense, people who have read good literature have lived more than people who cannot or will not read. It is not true that we have only one life to live; if we can read, we can live as many more lives and as many kinds of lives as we wish. ~S.I. Hayakawa

The World is a book, and those who do not travel read only a page.
~St. Augustine

Travel is fatal to prejudice, bigotry, and narrow-mindedness.
~Mark Twain
