So far, the most exciting new-to-me book today is Pulp by Robin Talley, which explores queer pulp novels through history. Can‘t wait to read this.

Omg i love Bookfest so much. I've been hanging for it for about a month!! Got some really good books, all practically brand new for a fraction of the price. A couldn't find any of the WWII books on my list, but I reckon I did ok. #bookhaul #bookfest #yay!

TrishB Wow 😮 great selection 👍🏻 12mo
Zee3 @TrishB thanks Trish! I'm pretty happy with what I got today. 😁 12mo

Zee3 @Shley9225 bookfest is an event that is held around Australia and hosted by Lifeline. They are a charity that help people with suicide, I guess silimar to the salvation army, with stores that sell 2nd items? Twice a year they get a big section at the convention centre and have all the books on display for sale. There are over 1 million books. 12mo
Shley9225 @Zee3 that sounds like an amazing event and wonderful way to raise money! And explains all the uk/aus covers in your stack! So jealous ❤️ 12mo
Zee3 @Shley9225 haha. I'm jealous about all the cool bookish stuff you guys can get in the states!! I've had a look at etsy and shipping to aus from the US is super expensive! But I do love Bookfest, its so cool to see people going around filling up shopping trolleys full of books. 12mo

Lucy Dahl was as charming as you'd expect Roald's daughter to be ☺
This was from the Los Angeles Times Festival of Books five years ago. If you ever get a chance to go, do it!

I went to the Festival of Books with the top three to get them signed... and came home with all the rest, many of those signed as well 😱😂 #latimesfestivalofbooks #bookfest #bookchella

KarenO I read that last summer with my f2f group of two and was sorry I‘d let it sit on my shelf so long. Really loved it. 9mo
Vanessa @KarenO I only have read a short story collection. I have this one and meant to read it... but shortly after I met him, some allegations surfaced about him behaving inappropriately toward women, which IIRC, he confirmed. I was really sad to hear that, and the book sat. 8mo

My #bookfest haul! Most excited about the tagged book! (How have I not heard of it before today?! Flawed characters are so my wheelhouse!)

The Julian Barnes was an impulse purchase after hearing him interviewed on NPR this morning.
