Last minute, but apparently Seattle Bookfest is this weekend. It's got lots of interesting-looking panels and workshops, and a bookswap. There seems to be a focus on writing, including a panel on NaNoWriMo (which I may or may not be doing this year), rather than on simply books, but I'm sure there's lots of that, too. In any case, anybody who lives in Seattle should go to it, because I can't. I've got a birthday party, a ball, and a lot of homework this weekend.
