Books, books, books, books......

So, I work for a very large financial services company.  (Don't ask me their name.  They Would Not Like to have it used in a blog.)  Of late, however, it looks less like Money I$ U$, and more like the world's biggest book warehouse.

There are actually desks under all these boxes......

My colleagues are very eager for Bouchercon to start, and not because it's going to be so much fun  ;-)

I'll bet you can guess what's in the boxes.


And who are the books for?


That's right. We're having a book bag stuffing party this weekend, and everything in those boxes is going into book bags.  Well, except for the ONE THOUSAND BOOKS  we're giving away on Thursday night.  (The bags are very cool, by the way, they turned out just as I hoped. Thanks, MWA!)

Anyway, you may be wondering which books are going into the book bags. Well, I'm not going to tell you. It's a surprise. What I will say is that it's not just books. There are galleys and ARCs and all sorts of things that the general public just doesn't have access to yet.

Remember when we asked for volunteers a few days ago? Well, it occurred to us that if people are willing to work for Bouchercon while they're at Bouchercon, they should get a treat. So we're setting aside a few very special copies of a few very special books, just for volunteers.

There are still volunteer opportunities. Just sayin'.

Oh, and here's a clue. Patrick Larry Peter.

Heh ;-)

Yes, people who attend on day passes will get book bags (we ordered extras).

And thanks for the offer of help - we're doing the bag stuffing on Saturday.
