The Los Angeles Times Festival of Books 2014: at the USC Campus!

As most of you who read my posts know, that I am an avid reader, a collector of first edition books and I love meeting the authors enjoy some small talk about the books they wrote and get their autographs.  Well the big annual event is here, downtown Los Angeles at the University of Southern California Campus hosts the annual event.

This is the weekend when I do minimal Real Estate activities: no showings in all fairness, I do answer my cell phone, I do respond to my emails via Blackberry and text as needed. The delayed response is all connected to, if I am conversing with an author or listening to an author discussing something about his or her books.

There are clearly a few major interests for me:  the Cookbooks, the Cooking Stage as well as the Mysteries, Historical Fiction and just the experience to hang out with like minded people. People who love reading and or collecting books and we talk and share our experiences about author signings and which books we loved and which ones we did not care for.

The crowd is very mixed, first time readers, seasoned old veteran readers, book sellers, book collectors it is truly an event that is worth going once and if you get hooked you go year after year. Check out our Coffee Mug Collection, we go back to many years of the Festival of Books; the proof is in the Coffee MugsJ!
