The annual Texas Book Festival was started by Laura Bush, who, like Zarena, is a librarian by trade. Along with the official book offerings, vendors and publishers set up tents along the streets by the Capitol. This year, the weather and the people were warm (as they usually are in Texas), and as Zarena, I received a friendly welcome by the locals. Countless little kids, and even several adults, wanted to take a picture with me. I handed out a hundred bookmarks with free ebook coupons. Time will tell whether the bread crumbs I cast upon the waters will return to me, but in any case, it was a lot of fun.
You can see more pictures of me as Zarena here, or on my Facebook page (sidebar).
