This week’s “Building the Book Fort” is later than usual because I attended the first Columbus Book Festival! I had a good time until it started raining. I bought several books, a bookmark, and a tote bag to carry everything around while I was there. I also splurged on a handmade leather-covered edition of The Hobbit from Studio 42 Designs. The picture doesn’t do it justice!

It was totally worth it, but now I’m behind on my TBR goal for the year. I’ve had no problem finishing books lately (I’m 3 books ahead of my reading goal), but they were audiobooks. I will need to finish or get rid of 3 physical books by the end of the month to catch back up.
