24/8 Book Club


Edinburgh International Book Festival

Well the 24/8 gals would like to tell you that we are blogging from Edinburgh, Scotland but alas we are not. But this festival is just impressive, we have to ask ourselves what are we missing here stateside.  Do we not value our authors in the way they do in Europe?  We would love to hear from authors on this topic. 

There are over 600-plus authors reading and signing books at this 17 day extravaganza. If you go to this url you will get a taste of what the doings are, http://www.edbookfest.co.uk/

Thought it would be appropriate to write a blog posting for our 24/8 community right in the middle of the 17 days.  You still have time to hop on a plane if you are the adventurous sort and join in with the fesitivities.  We hope at 24/8 to visit this and other Book Festivals in ’08 and report back to you from wherever “there” may be.

You don’t need to hop on a plane – you can enjoy vicariously via my blog. I’m attending 20 events at the Edinburgh Book Festival this year and a number of alternative literary festivals. Take a look at what I’ve written so far:
