So Many Books So Little Time ...Baltimore Book Festival


The MidAtlantic Book Publishers Association booth was at the base of the Washington Monument, right in front of the Mt. Vernon Place United Methodist Church with its gingerbread spires.

Anyone who has followed me knows about my Book, Real Estate the Right Rome Way, and my friend and publisher Peg Silloway.

If you want a refresher, here are some posts from the previous years.

Had fun taking photos of some of the book characters. It was really really hot and  must have been unbearable in those outfits.

Margaret, sounds like you had a great time.  I wanted to go but I had signed up for a weekend quilt retreat with my guild and spent the weekend with some lovely ladies working on quilts.
