Counting down to Booktopia…

Just  4 mere days away from Booktopia in Oxford, MS. It feels like I’ve been waiting forever and now it’s so close to being here! The author line-up is quite nice- Jesmyn Ward, Tom Franklin, Kevin Brockmeier, Ellen F. Brown,  and a few others.

I’m beyond ready to spend a couple of days in Oxford- it’s one of my favorite places. The Square, Square Books, sitting on balcony at Burgundy Room or City Grocery, the food, shopping- plus since it’s summer- the town will have almost a sleepy feel at times with the majority of the students being gone.

While I have not finished all my Booktopia reading, I’m not going to stress. I’m going to go, enjoy listening to the authors, and have a good time. I’m also going to eat at all my favorite places, take pictures and really enjoy a weekend of being away.

My packing list: Flip flops, shorts, cute shirts, nice pants for dinner, books to be signed by authors, camera, big sunglasses, and my Kindle.
