I wish I could go to the Provo Library Book Fair. But we are leaving that day for a family cruise to celebrate my parents 50th anniversary!

Seriously, why don't I live in Orem anymore?!? I want to go so bad I can taste it!

On another note, Jurassic Water Park is about 10 billion times cooler than Jurassic Park with no water. I would go to Jurassic Water Park!

Uh-oh! We'll you two are going to miss out! The Provo Book Festival is my favorite book festival of the year--and not just because it's three blocks from my house. It's GREAT! and it's FREE!

But if you can't come. Don't worry, I'll try and take some pictures so all the blog readers can get a taste of the PBF!

I will be there!

Possibly handing out bookmarks to promote a BYU library blog, but still... doesn't mean I won't enjoy it!

I feel your pain, Meredeth. I am so sad I don't live in Provo anymore. Or Pleasant Grove. Or even Utah. There are so many cool authors/illustrators there.

Actually, after thinking about it, I'm not really sad that I don't live in Utah anymore. I'm just sad that all the cool authors/illustrators/events/etc. didn't move with me to Hawaii.

(Although, I'm starting to find some new ones.)
