#TheReadersRoadtripWrapUp

As you will see in the series of posts below, I bought lots of books and couldn’t wait to mete them out slowly over several days. Somehow I don’t think any of you will mind. Here is a sampling of the non book-buying moments from the trip.

Not only the site of Willa Cather's childhood home, but the site of Simon losing his passport. To read the gory details check out Simon's account.

We totally lucked out on this first morning in finding this amazing breakfast. Totally great home cooked meal at the Bird's Nest in the cute town of Bedford, PA.

The lovely view from my hotel window in Petoskey, MI. Even lovelier was the breeze that came in off the lake. Bliss.

One of the nicest gifts ever from Booktopian Karen. If you have ever seen the fantastic book My Ideal Bookshelf by Jane Mount, you will recognize this lovely print. Karen had the artist do a drawing of the four books we chatted about with Michael and Ann at Booktopia.

I might have skipped out of the final night's Booktopia program in order to enjoy a glimpse of the lake at sunset.
