We are back from the Texas Book Festival November 4 & 5. The Texas Book Festival is an annual book fair held in Austin, Texas. The festival was established in 1995 by Laura Bush, then the First Lady of Texas and is a popular designation for folks who love books and all that surrounds them. While there were top name stars, Tom Hanks and Dan Rather, there were also some of the best adult and youth authors from across the USA.
This year I brought all three girls with me and we had a great time. Below is a picture of them meeting one of their most beloved authors Sarah Mlynowski who writes the bestselling Whatever After series and a “bunch of other books”.
Other authors who signed our books include: Jeff Abbott, Libba Bray, Dan Chaon, Carina Chocano, Matt de la Pena, Sarah Dessen, Nathan Englander, Margarita Engle, Kinky Friedman, Cristina Garcia, Meg Gardiner, Claudia Gray, Daniel Handler, Stephen Harrigan, Walter Isaacson, Tyehimba Jess, William Joyce, Nicole Krauss, Min Jin Lee, Jardine Libaire, Malinda Lo, Bryce Milligan, Sarah Mlynowski, Katherine Paterson, Peter Sis, Lemony Snicket, Paco Ignacio Taibo II, Benjamin Taylor, Anne Wilkes Tucker, Ellen Ullman, Amanda Ward, Kevin Young. So… check out our new stock of these authors signed books and add to your collection.
Welcome to Bookmarc's!

Who are we? We are professional booksellers and enthusiastic book collectors who have been selling books online since 1997. We are physically located in Houston but do not currently have a physical storefront. We tend to specialize in Texana and Western Americana, Mystery and Thriller, Chicano and Latino Literature and Social History, and Cooking. At the same time, we also offer a broad assortment of quality books in a wide variety of subjects. We also try to acquire collectable, less-common or “quirky” books that we think might be difficult to find generally.

This book is in Very, Very Good condition and I thank you Very Very Much! Your site is now in My Favorites and I'll check back to see if you have any others I'm searching for."
