Alabama Book Festival 2008

txt_albookfest.jpgThis past weekend we loaded up the VW and headed to Montgomery to participate in this year’s Alabama Book Festival. The weather was perfect as was our location.

All of which were made that much better by getting to spend time speaking with readers and users of our books. With our long list of fun authors, gorgeous travel photos of beautiful subject matter, it is always a blast putting our books together, but there is nothing like sitting outside, on a sunny southern Saturday, sharing tales of the trail and outdoor adventures.

Our best selling titles this Festival were our popular 60 Hikes Within 60 Miles: Birmingham and A Canoe and Kayaking: Georgia.Lots of people would come by, already owning one of our guide books looking to see what else we had available for their state. That gives you a warm feeling, on par with the sun that day, to know that people have used your books and enjoyed themselves enough to search you out to see what else there is to do!It was a great day and we’re excited for the future of the Alabama Book Festival! We have a few photos after the jump…
