I’ve always loved reading. There’s really nothing I like better than relaxing with a good book. When in the midst of an especially good one, I’ve been known to stay awake in the wee hours just to find a good stopping point, but that’s the trouble with a really well-written book; there are very few good stopping points.
Before I became an agent, I thought that I’d have lots of opportunities to spend reading. I imagined bringing a book with me on floor in the office, or during open homes, but I soon learned that real estate is a demanding job with very little time to goof off, especially now, with the local market being as hot as it is.
Still, Berkeley is a book lover’s town. When I was attending the university here, the fatal attraction of Moe’s Books right across the street from the Mediterranean Cafe would often keep me in that part of Telegraph Avenue far too long enjoying a new book and a delicious cup of coffee.
I bring all of this up because this weekend is the Bay Book Fest. It’s a free festival in downtown Berkeley’s arts district with loads of activities for all ages including author talks, a teen & children’s stage, and good food! It’s happening June 6th and 7th and it’s FREE, so come to Berkeley and scratch that reader’s itch!
