Booze and books–not in that order, are sort of my life’s interests (also, the internet, so this post really ties that all up). I have been enjoying a bit of both while here. i went on the cocktail tour and had:

a Scarlett O’Hara–Southern Comfort and cranberry. Meh SoCo’s not my thing
a plantation punch-pink!
I also want to try a Crescent City Cooler if I have time.

As a kid, when I went to used bookstores, I always wondered how people got so lucky to get advanced reader’s copies. I have now become such a person. Way to go me. 17 year old me would be totally proud! I also got to tour the BookTV van, which was completely exciting. Yeah, I am a dork.
