Word on the Street

So this post is a little late.  I have been ridiculously busy trying to make some resources for my classroom lately and as a result I haven't had time to download any photos from Word on the Street.  I know excuses, excuses.  Anyhow, for those of you who don't know Word on the Street is an annual event in Toronto (I also believe it is in other Canadian locations as well).  Essentially they shut down two busy streets in Toronto at Queen's Park and there are tents with book vendors and food vendors.  They also have different author readings and things in the park.  It's an incredibly amazing bookish event and this year I had the opportunity to go with my sister.  We also met up with my old roommate while we were there.  Here are a few pics from the event:

Here I am on the street.  You can see all the vendors in the background.

Again another pic of me with the vendors in the background. 

Here are all my goodies that I bought. This is pre-Mara Dyer

For all you Canadians I'm sure you know the PolkaRoo

Yes, I am a huge nerd!

Again, trying to sneak in while he greets the children. 

Me & My Sister Kendra
Anyhow, we had a great time til the end of the day where we were going to go and see Kelley Armstrong speak.  I thought it would be a great idea at that point to drop my credit card somewhere on the street.  My sister and I ran around trying to find it to no avail.  Oh well, I had my credit card company send me a new one.  Overall, a successful day and I will definitely making this a yearly trip.  Any bloggers want to meet up next year?
