We saw lots of old friends and made many new ones. I got to get my picture taken with former governor (and my hero) Barbara Roberts -- who will read here from her new memoir on November 1st. We got to hear a few of the many great writers at the show, and we got to meet a lot of authors who came by to chat. Our booth was perfectly situated across from the McMenamins Stage, around the corner from Ristretto coffee roasters, so we were happy as pigs in mud all weekend.
As a special treat for all of our customers who weren't able to make it to Wordstock this year, we came back with signed copies of both Wildwood by Colin Meloy and Carson Ellis and the gorgeous graphic novel Habibi by Craig Thompson. These aren't likely to last long, so come get yours now. We can only reserve copies of these books for 24 hours unless we charge your credit card.
