National Book Festival 2007

We spent the day at the National Book Festival, down at "The Mall". There were tons and tons of people and it took us almost 2 hours to get there by car and find a carpark. Luckily we managed to get their in time before the "free" book bags were gone LOL my kind of festival when they give away lots of free stuff. We managed to get a few books and posters, book markers, flyers and informational materials for Maddy. The book sales were very expensive so I decided to take down a few titles and find them elsewhere, as I know I will be able to get them much more cheaply through my book club I joined earlier this year.

There were lots to eat and drink, games to play and pictures to take with cartoon characters and sorts. There were a few authors I wanted to listen to but because I had my two boys with me, and it was extrememly hot (well not for me LOL), we chose just to view the children's tent, ride the merry-go-round and do whatever else Madison wanted to do.

Overall, we had a fun time and look forward to the next Book festival in 2008.
