St. George Book Festival


This morning I attended the St. George Book Festival. It was much smaller than I thought it would be. I was expecting dozens of authors but there were just a handful of them there.
I had a good time meeting local authors, discovering new books and best of all I came home with some great books to reveiw. Thanks to the authors who provided me reveiw copies!
