A Baltimore Book Weekend!

The weekend of July 13th, mom and I went to Baltimore to do a book weekend.  We went to 6 different book places and just spent a whole weekend enjoying the world of books.  We even took a few moments to sit outside and read a book, minus getting caught in a little rain running back to the hotel!  It was an AWESOME weekend and maybe next time I should bring home less and read a little more, but the mother/daughter time was priceless.  

My favorite book places that we went to while in Baltimore (and the ones that we will be revisiting in the future) are - The Book Thing - free books, as many as you can carry!; Ukazoo - used books galore, and buy 3 get 1 free, can't beat that deal AND B&N Power Plant - on the inner harbor, cool architecture inside and a great discount section!

PS - I did take 6 boxes of book to donate at The Book Thing, that felt like such a great gift because The Book Thing has given me some really great finds!  

Here is a video, showing a few of the things that came home with me from Baltimore.

  1. It's very kind of you to share the book titles you bought. I can tell you and your mom had a good time. I enjoyed the video. Enjoy your books.

  2. Cause Celeb is one of my favorite Helen Fielding books - very different from Bridget Jones but special in its own way. Enjoy!
