Saturday Snapshot: Shaka For Books

Rob Meets Hawaii Book Blog
At the start of summer I attended my first book festival. That's the good news. The bad is that I could only squeeze in about two hours. I was doing writing projects for clients in Honolulu the same weekend as the Hawaii Book and Music Festival.

My two hour visit gave me a chance to hear Roseanne Barr speak, the last 15 minutes anyway, and mystery writer Douglas Corleone.

I also had the opportunity to meet my first book bloggers. Misty and Alex were there from Hawaii Book Blog. I loved their "Shaka For Books" t-shirt and bought one on their website. It's become THE shirt when I volunteer at our library book sales.

Now that summer is almost over, although living on Kauai feels like it's endless, I'm looking forward to fall celebrations. I'm heading to the North Shore for a swim at Hanalei today and plan some downtime to relax and maybe write a book review.

How are you spending Labor Day weekend?

Saturday Snapshot is hosted weekly by Alyce from At Home With Books.


  1. Rob, this seems like a fun event. We are spending a quiet weekend at home and family visits.

  2. Glad you got to spend a bit of time at the book festival! Fun picture.

    I spent my first day of the Labor Day weekend cruising with my husband in his '66 Mustang and visiting two used bookstores. Came home with 11 books. Sweet.

    Here's my snapshot:

  3. Love book festivals!! Love the pic!

  4. No major plans for the three-day weekend except to relax in the sunshine and get better. I managed to get sick on the second day of school. I think it was touching every students' ID card as they got their textbooks!

  5. That would have been so cool to see Roseanne Barr speak! Neat that you got to meet up with some other Hawaiian bloggers.

    Our big plans for the weekend were for today - we went to the Oregon State football game and then went out to dinner with my in-laws. Now I just want a nap. :)

  6. Hi Rob, glad you were able to carve out some fun time for yourself. Wish I were able to visit the book festival. Great picture!

    Aloha, Bonnie
