Sunday Delight: Bookish Weekends

Happy Sunday Everyone!
I know today is not Sunday.  My Sunday post is a bit late.  I was a little lazy this weekend with all the bookish things I was planning to do.  Like blog.  HAHAHA!!  Ooopss!  I kinda let that one slip past me as well.  Last weekend (2 weeks ago) was so busy with the Inglewood Literary Festival and Yallwest that I completely forgot about posting my Sunday post of events and things.  FYI, for the month of April in Los Angeles there seems to be more bookish events, signings and things going on than any other time of the year.  And you know me...I just have to attend as many as possible.  :)
I purchased books last week and last Sunday was the  LA Times Festival of Books.  I was planning on buying a ton of books but nope the Lord took all the books I wanted and hid them from me.  It's a good thing since next month is BEA15 and I know I will loose my mind there.  ARGH!

 S.I.K. ask "Why are 5 Star Books So Hard To Come By?I know what she means.  Last year was a year full of 4 stars for me.  This year I have had a few 5-stars so far and that is rare for me.
