Thank you booklovers of Los Angeles
A big thanks to everyone who visited the AbeBooks and Story Laboratory booths at the LA Times Festival of Books over the past weekend. We met buyers, collectors, booksellers, librarians, teachers, authors, researchers, publishers, mums, dads, kids and many more bookloving folk on Saturday and Sunday. It was blazing hot on Saturday (almost 100 degrees) – seven days earlier we had experienced snow in Victoria, British Columbia, where AbeBooks is headquartered.
The nice thing about the festival is that it pulls in a broad range of book people – people who are happy reading Danielle Steel wandering about alongside those who adore Philip Roth and Cormac McCarthy.
