I love these vlogs that you do! The Book Fair sounds fantastic this weekend -- I visit Boston 3 or 4 times a year to see family, but I never seem to plan to visit when these types of events are going on! Argh!

Looking forward to your post on how the event went -- I'm very excited to see the types of books that you come across!

The vlog is such a fun idea, Marie. I have never read the Martin Guerre book, but the medievalist in me thinks I'd love it!

Marie, you are too cute with the vlogs! I am also getting really excited about Squirrel Meets Chipmunk, and am now listening to When You are Engulfed in Flames in audio this month as well. I just can't get enough David Sedaris! I hope you have a good time at the book event as well!

The book fair sounds fun although I am afraid I would want to buy too many things. I'd love to take a few of my old books and have them appraised. That part sounds really interesting!

the videos are turning out great.

Sedaris is already on my to-read list, but I hadn't considered the audio-version, will have to check that out as a way to move Sedaris up the stack.

hope you enjoy the fair, and the fab finds.

These mini videos are just great Marie - very informative too.

Oh man, I wish I still lived in Boston--the fair sounds wonderful!

I'm looking forward to reading Squirrel Seeks Chipmunk; I think I'll go for the audiobook. As for The Return of Martin Guerre, I think there's a musical based on that story! I'll have to look into the book.

I love these vlogs!
