What Are You Reading?

What are you reading? At the Los Angeles Festival of Books this weekend, hundreds of readers scribbled an answer to that question on a gigantic poster.

While some publishing events limit who can attend, it was refreshing to see big crowds full of of happy readers–each leaving a personalized mark on the festival.

California readers listed a bounty of books, everything from A Tale of Two Cities to Infinite Jest to Harry Potter books to Justin Bieber‘s memoir. Below, we’ve collected a few snapshots of the literary graffiti. We also spotted a series of giant crossword puzzles, solved live by anyone walking through the fair. Check out the photos–this kind of interactivity could help any literary event.
