Two ways I was able to spread the #booklove last month

I don't blog all that often about stuff I've been doing, but I wanted to share a couple things real quick because I was blessed to be involved in two bigger-than-normal things last month, and I'm all about celebrating the good shtuff. (FYI, I tried and tried to format this better, but the photos and I weren't getting along, so I finally gave up.)

Anyway. The first of two Good Things that happened in September took place in the coastal town of Pismo Beach. The day before Good Thing #1 happened, we came across this sign after dinner:

For those of you unaware of what Boba is, this is what I found online to describe it: 

Boba tea (also called pearl tea, or bubble tea) is a sweet drink that combines milk, flavored tea and tapioca pearls that are sucked up through an extra large straw and chewed. The pearls have a soft, chewy consistency similar to that of gummy candy.

Boba can be good, bad, or meh, but this little shop in Pismo was straight-up YUMMY. And, visitors from all-over had put up Post-It notes around the Boba menu, which was really cool. We had so much fun checking them out and finding out what towns had passed through before us!
    Me, Boba in hand, showing off the view right outside the shop.
The day after our Boba finding, I participated in the Central Coast Book and Author Fair. (I am showing you my table because it looked very nice, whereas the photos of me IN the shots were horrible as I was facing the sun and had serious squinty-eyes.) I met some wonderful people, and am definitely going back next year! Check out my table:

EEK! Isn't it lovely? See my owl candy jar? :D

Then, the following weekend, a fellow YA author and I spoke at my local library! We each had a half-hour time slot, and boy did the time fly. It was great getting to talk not only about my books and YA in general, but also how to spread the #booklove! 

(This is my I LOVE BOOKS face! I am a nerd.)
And... there you have it...  two fun things I was involved with in September!

I also made a HOW TO SPREAD THE BOOKLOVE chart (you may have seen it a few weeks back on Twitter).  I'm including it below, in case you want to share it!
