#NatBookFest recap: fantastic panels; signed (originally didn‘t get Goliath as I tried to have some restraint, but after hearing his & Leslye‘s panel had to get it too); added ~2 dozen TBR books; got tons of bookmarks; met neat people, one of whom told me about the b2weird IG book club focused on SFF authors of color + she gave me her extra ARC of Janelle Monáe‘s book.

Bonus! I got to have dinner with @Chrissyreadit & @Susanita ❤️ #littenmeetup

Leftcoastzen That sounds wonderful! 3mo
TrishB A great day 👍🏻 3mo

At #NatBookFest! Sat in on a panel with Tiffany D. Jackson and Ryan La Sala. I haven‘t read any of their works. It was a panel on the horror genre in YA. It was very interesting and they were both very funny! I may be checking out their books!

Chrissyreadit I wanted to sit in on so many panels! All the ones I‘ve done have been good. But now I want to buy all the books! 3mo
MyNamesParadise @Chrissyreadit I know! I do too!! lol. It was a great day! 3mo

I‘ll need to be at least 3 people to get to all the sessions & signings I want to attend! 😆😆😆
These are all the #NatBookFest books I plan to read. I hope to purchase at least a couple of these at the festival & get them signed. The question remains: which ones?!?

We‘re also planning a Litsy meet-up on Sep 3. Sign-up so we can coordinate a time & location to meet:

ozma.of.oz I really enjoyed Ballad of Perilous Graves! 👍🏻 4mo
wanderinglynn @ozma.of.oz good to know! It‘s high on my list. 👍🏻 4mo
Leftcoastzen The downside of Festivals , hard choices , can‘t be in two places at once.😄Though good to have back ups , I‘ve been to festivals where a session is full , so go to the other one. 4mo

Soubhiville Immense World was amazing. I wouldn‘t miss that one. 4mo
wanderinglynn @Leftcoastzen yes! I tried to reduce my schedule & ended up adding 4 more sessions/signings 😆 4mo
wanderinglynn @Soubhiville thanks! That‘s good to know. It is high on my list. 👍🏻 4mo
Soubhiville It‘s always tough to decide! I‘ve had a few times that 2-3 panels I‘m interested overlapped. I‘m sure you‘ll have a great time no matter what you choose! 4mo
5feet.of.fury Oh neat! I never heard of this! So many amazing authors! 4mo
wanderinglynn @5feet.of.fury The National Book Festival is wonderful! And it‘s in person this year – https://www.loc.gov/events/2022-national-book-festival/ 4mo
5feet.of.fury This wasn‘t my favorite Offerman, but I would LOVE to meet him! 4mo

wanderinglynn @Susanita how fun! I hope you get to meet some cool authors. 4mo
tpixie @wanderinglynn @Susanita have fun!!! I‘ll be living vicariously through you! #NatBookFest #NatBookFest2022 4mo
PageShifter This is so awesome idea. I wish you all have fun 🥳 4mo
wanderinglynn @PageShifter 😀 thanks! 4mo
Graciouswarriorprincess @wanderinglynn I am so sad though. Being triple vaccinated but with a son the same but with a compromised immune system, I just am afraid of bringing something home to him. 😭😭😭 4mo
wanderinglynn @Graciouswarriorprincess I understand. I still wear a mask and I see other people wearing masks, but the majority of people in DC aren‘t. Better to stay safe. 💚 4mo
Graciouswarriorprincess @wanderinglynn That‘s what I thought as I had several friends go to conventions there recently and get sick. I am still coming home though to visit friends. Have fun! 4mo
