Thoughts for Thursday: Austin Teen Book Festival: It's Finally Here; Well it will be Saturday...

The Austin Teen Book Festival is finally right around the corner. I will be getting up early on Saturday morning to head out. I hope to get there when the doors open so I can purchase a few books then hit the first panel. I am a little upset that I cannot go to all 6 panels but I believe I can see 3. They book 2 at time, causing me to choose. I know evil right. There is at least one author on each panel I would love to hear. Anyways I will have to choose, and I am not positive yet how I am going to do just that. I you are curious the panels are listed below... If you would like to add comments on your choices or what you would choose... please do so!
