Washington Book Festival

Last weekend I got the opportunity to visit The National Book Festival in Washington D.C. I'd never been before so this was pretty exciting. :3 I went with friends (one of whom got their awesome dad to drive us there, much love to you your dad Abby!) so I had a really good time.

Probably the most exciting part of the festival was seeing Neil Gaiman speak (w00t). We were all excited. (Though none moreso than Abby.) We also bought a copy of his new book - "The Graveyard Book." We're splitting it between us because it was the last copy left. I was disappointed with the amount of books at the book festival. There weren't as many as I had imagined and the book tent was cramped. Now Neil was great but the most exciting celebrity that happened to be at the book festival was.....the TARGET DOG!

(PS: Watching the Vice Presidential Debate is killing me so here is a mildly amusing picture of tiny Batman getting bitch-slapped from some old comics my dad sent me.)
