Luckily I have spent quite a lot of time walking around with my camera. These photos are all from the Edinburgh Book Festival (you may have guessed from the first photo) based in Charlotte Square. I've got so many good memories of school trips here, meeting JK Rowling and so many other talented authors, just sitting soaking up the atmosphere, or sitting in the Spiegel Tent having a quick pint.
I actually only popped in to donate some of my old books but ended up spending most of the afternoon walking round, drinking coffee and celebrity spotting (I saw ex-Prime Minister Gordon Brown - exciting!), such a wonderful way to spend a day.
