I love to read, and I love to read good, old fashioned paper books! I buy books all the time, both new and used. I've been known to read an entire book in a weekend, or to stay up until the wee hours on a weeknight to finish one I cannot put down.
And don't even get me started on books about sewing and knitting and crafting! I never met a bookstore or in-the-lobby book sale that I didn't like. Like the one in our lobby last week Thursday, where I picked up a copy of J.A. Jance's Fatal Error. I started reading it at lunchtime and finished it up on Friday evening. It was a page-turner!!
This weekend, while I was knitting a scarf for Miss E, I watched some Book TV on CSpan 2 on cable TV. For those of you who have never watched, it's normally 48 hours of discussions, lectures, reviews and more about non-fiction books that runs on the network that usually carried live coverage of the US Government during the week. Yeah, boring but true, Congress has its own network.
If you're interested in books of all kinds, there is a Festival Of The Book coming in to the National Mall in Washington D.C. on September 22-23. I bet it will be televised on Book TV.
Google book festivals, I'll bet there's one near you!
