Recovery from an intensely bookish weekend is quite sweet, but recovery is indeed needed. I'll be tackling the eight panels I attended one at a time and will reserve additional posts each day for those I met and enjoyed, and those I met who had me trembling, nearly forgetting my name, because I couldn't believe I had the opportunity to chat them up.
That's what's so divine about the book fest - it is, for the most part (obviously there are vast exceptions wherein authors have issues with one another), a mutual admiration society. We're all such book nerds that it's very nearly a bookish nirvana.
Consider this the week of post-LATFOB coverage - when all my notes (with so many money quotes it will bring tears to your eyes) will be set loose from their spiral bound confines and alight on the (blog) page.
Until then, you can check out John's excellent author interviews at Book Fox.
