For me, Christmas comes in September in the form of the Brooklyn Book Festival. This Sunday I will be in the trenches with a handful of other wonderful Tumblr-ers. To say I am excited would be a gross understatement. Let’s just say I am preparing for this in the same way runners prepare for a marathon: lots of carbs, electrolytes, and chafing tape.
See you on Sunday!
