Sunday September 25, 2011

Today was the annual Word on the Street (WOTS) National Book & Magazine Festival, which here in Toronto takes over Queen's Park.  Steve and I went out to enjoy some of our favourite things - literature, being outside, and food that isn't terribly good for us.  Here's what I came home with:

Plus, I even got it signed by the author!
