Scene @ LA Times Festival of Books

iminyrbooth.jpg

I was pleasantly surprised to see that Dan Goodsell, the creator of the The World of Mr. Toast webcomic, had a booth at the LA Times Festival of Books. Although I had told myself I wasn’t going to spend any money that weekend, I just couldn’t resist here, picking up a T-shirt and a tiny stuffed Mr. Toast. (And apparently I’m not the only one; even ’90s lesbian folk sensation Phranc came by the booth, according to Goodsell’s blog.)

Look for a few remaining bits of Festival coverage tomorrow, including a recap of my panel on blogging and book reviewing…
