Edinburgh International Book Festival

A Quick Report

Free wireless in Edinburgh at All Good Coffee shop. It's nice to have a free connection and the coffee's not bad, but the signal's a little weak and it would be grand if they had Splenda.

At any rate, the book festival has been interesting. We need to get over to meet friends, so I'll just report this conversation I overheard in line for Jasper Fforde last night:

WOMAN ONE: I just love his books. Have you read them?

WOMAN TWO: Oh, just the first one --

W1: Did you like it? Oh, you must have loved it because you're here.

W2: Well, I just wanted to see what sort of man would write a book like that...

If you get a chance to see Mr. Fforde, take it. He's terribly funny.
