What I did today....




So, today was book bag stuffing today.  Publishers have been incredibly generous with the books they sent to us for your enjoyment.




We think we probably started with about 7500 books.  That's a bunch.  It took a looooong time and required a break for yummy Mexican food, which made us all happier workers.




And then we finished, and went home to count the minutes until Bouchercon officially starts...

Wow! That's incredible and exciting.

Thanks again to you, Rae, and all the volunteers who are working to get those books distributed.

Being in the "been there done that" camp, and doing it again next year, a big THANK YOU to all the bag stuffers.
That first look when they are all unpacked is... overwhelming.
