FOB

• Monday, April 26, 2010

Today I went to the FOB and I don't mean "Fresh off the Boat."  I mean the Festival of Books at UCLA. It was pretty exciting just being some place so high energy, but it did not meet my expectations.  I guess I was hoping it'd be a great big book store with a huge selection of all kinds of books imaginable at great great prices.  Instead I was surprised by all the random vendors and all the self-published authors trying to peddle their pet projects (though that'll probably be me in the future).  I want for the festival to be better screened and organized.

Of course, there were many upsides to today.  I was able to make a run to Diddy Riese--still such a great price!  I got to spend the day with my favorite peeps.  I also had the sweet realization that many people still love books and reading.  So tell me: What are you reading?
