Once Upon A Time Project G4 Week 4

Hello Everyone!
This week I've decided to share my morning at the Brisbane Writer's Festival!  I hadn't bought any tickets to any of the events so I just took a look around and bought a few things before heading home.

So obviously I headed straight to The Library Shop and checked out what they had available in the Teen section.  The Red Necklace by Sally Gardner and Soul Stealers caught my eye hence the reason for my photo! LOL

Honestly, I tried walking past this book three times but for some reason I felt like I needed to buy it.  For reasons unknown I felt this book really needed to be sitting in my overflowing bookshelf


I was waiting for my fancy vege lasagne and salad here and couldn't help thinking this table would look pretty cool in my lounge room.  As you can see I bought the book lol.

This is the view of the city from outside the Museum.
So these are the books I ended up coming home with.
Six Impossible Things by Fiona Wood
The Phoenix Files: Arrival
One Book Many Brisbanes
Burnt Snow by Van Badham
1001 Books for every Mood by Hallee Epron.
For some reason I have this thing for picking up flyers and free stuff when I'm at events.  Here I have the Program for the Brisbane Writer's Festival, Australian Poetryslam '10, Insight Magazine (State Library of Queensland Magazine), What's On in Brisbane card and Creative Sparks thingy.

So yeah, while I didn't do too much I was really excited to be at a Festival with other writers and Authors as well as other people interested in the stuff that I am.  I was amazed at how many people turned up on the first day.  I think it was more for the school kids and workshops but I still had a good time.

Brisbane Writer's Festival is on from the 1st to the 5th September 2010 so don't miss out on attending.  There are free events as well as ticketed ones too.

How do you feel when you've found another person who enjoys writing or reading??
