  1. I always get so super excited when I see you're doing a Mark Your Calendars post. I'm not going to any either though- not close enough.

  2. I had no idea Jeyn Roberts was Canadian!

  3. I love these posts of informative! :)

  4. You NEED to go see Kenneth Oppel. Even if you haven't read his books before. I was lucky enough to go see him at my library earlier this year and he was highly entertaining, engaging, and informative. I might even consider going to see him a second time!
