I’ve seen some people doing a “Dance Recess” video on their BookTube channels, and I wanted to join in, but really…. I don’t dance. Nope. So singing is the best you’ll get from me. If the point of these “Recess” videos is to make a fool of yourself, then I have succeeded! Especially when I forgot the lyrics, and had to ask my sister off-camera.
World Book Night U.S. is a celebration of books and reading held on April 23, when 25,000 passionate volunteers across America give a total of half a million books within their communities to those who don’t regularly read.
I did not win NaNoWriMo this year, and I am thrilled about it! People talk about failure as if it is this horrible thing, but failure is one of the best tools for learning and growing. I am a Proud Failure!
Come with me on a tour of some old bookstores in Savannah, Georgia! The book stores in Savannah, Georgia, USA that I visited are…
E. Shaver, Bookseller- http://www.eshaverbooks.com/
Book Lady Bookstore – http://www.thebookladybookstore.com/
Both of these gorgeous stores are full of fancy couches and comfy chairs before the fireplaces, nifty nooks and secret out-of-the-way rooms, piled high with beautiful books, some old and rare, some new and shiny, more general bookiness than can be comprehended by the mind of man!
It’s book heaven! I visited book heaven on earth, and I didn’t buy a book. I did meet the owner of one, the actual Book Lady herself, and she was very sweet and gave me the run of the store. If you are ever in Savannah, you should visit these two lovely book havens!
I visited beautiful Savannah, Georgia, USA and saw the Children’s Book Festival! What an exciting time!
I was so glad to be able to visit Savannah, at the exact time that they had a Children’s Book Festival!
Here are the famous authors that I saw…
Rachel Randall- “The Dork Diaries”- http://www.dorkdiaries.com/home/
Marc Brown- “Arthur” – http://marcbrownstudios.com/arthur
Amazingly enough, I did not buy one single book. I’m not really sure how I managed it. It’s some sort of miracle! The laws of nature have been reversed, and Kailey did NOT buy a book!
We are halfway through NaNoWriMo, and I am way behind on my word count! I need to get writing!
“Beware the Ides of March” was a famous warning to Julius Caesar that he would be killed on that day. I wonder how many novels have been killed on the Ides of November?
I’m still trying to keep mine alive!
