Total # of books for the year: 75.   This weekend was the Texas Book Festival.  I was only able to attend on Saturday, but I ended up bringing home six books and two coloring books despite planning to get only two books.  The authors on the panels I went to made their books sound so wonderful that I couldn’t help but scoop them up from the buying tables and get in line to get them signed.  It was a fabulous and exhausting Saturday and I have absolutely no regrets 🙂
