Make Hay While the Sun Shines

The Guardian is offering a chance to win tickets to the Hay Book Festival in Wales on May 28th. Of course it is just tickets to the event itself, you have to provide your own transport. If anyone would like to donate airfare I'd be more than happy to go, take notes and lots of pictures, I'll even buy you a book or two and stand in long lines to have it signed by the author. After all, it'd be the least I could do. If you have never heard of the Hay Book Festival, Hay-on-Wye for that matter, where have you been? Check out the town's website. This place is my dream vacation. It'd be even better to live there as Paul Collins, author of a charming little book, Sixpence House: Lost in a Town of Books got to do. My copy is severely water damaged from my uncontrolled drooling as I read it. Until I win the lottery jackpot I'll just keep saving for the vacation and dreaming about moving there. Sigh.
