Books from Austin

DH returned from the archeology conference in Austin, Texas, with presents for Blaze and I, from what he described as "a really cool bookstore".

For me:


If you would like to know more about Boilerplate, everything you could ever want to know, can be found here:

For Blaze:


It's really a beautiful vintage copy of Tanglewood Tales.

DH also came home with a book for himself, but he didn't have to buy his book, he won it. By coming in second in the student writing competition, he won a signed copy of a book he had been wanting, but couldn't afford ( it's normally around $90).


The book about Moundville is special to DH for another reason, other than being his prize. He worked on the Moundville site back in the 1990's.

Although it is hard to tell, the guy in the white T-shirt, in this picture from the book, is DH.

Oh, that was super thoughtful of him. What a sweetie. :)

I'm glad he got (WON!) a book for himself, too.

And no, that doesn't look like him in the photo, but how cool is that to have a signed copy!

Obviously he went to BookPeople! It's the coolest in the whole state!
