This past Sunday, I went to
The Los Angeles Times Festival of Books!!!!
I had so much fun!
Last year, I was frantic going to author signings to authors signings, and I did it for both days. I remember how exhausted and sore I was by the end of the festival weekend.
This year, I planned to take it easy. My plan was to meet a few authors, spend time with my sister and friend, and enjoy the atmosphere. I pretty much wanted to relax.
Here's how it went:
I arrived early with the intention of getting my spot for the author interview and author signing with Jason Segel.
For those that don't know, Jason Segel is a famous comedian, actor, writer, and producer. He is absolutely hilarious...plus, I have small crush on him ;) He has also debuted his first children's book, Nightmares!

As the day was getting hotter and my skin began to burn, I decided to go to my last book signing. As I was waiting in line, I finally met for the first time a fellow book blogger and Shelfari friend: Sarah aka Sawcat!!!
It was exciting to finally meet her since we've been trying to catch each other at the festival for the past couple of years. She's an awesome blogger and a sweet person.
You can check her out at Sawcat's Book Blog.

It was a wonderful day. It turned out exactly what I was hopping for...well...except for getting sunburned. *sigh*
Thanks for checking out another one of my book festival experiences! I hope you enjoyed!!!
