Wow, it has been some CRAZY ride.
When last we saw our heroine (me), having been interviewed by news publications and shows across the land,
she found herself nose deep in books
More books came in from Harper Collins and monies and credit at a local book exchange were donated. Many a gallant dame and knight sent books, magazine subscriptions, and those of the writing sort offered school visits and writing seminars.
Because I Read So’s logo and mission were pasted in books and books and books and then more books.
And then came the librarians.
Our heroine (me) was jumping up and down and might have squealed just a little at the expression on the librarian’s (also our heroines) faces when they saw the tables of goodies.
They giggled and rushed the tables like children at Christmas.
They made piles
and found wanted treasures
and played rock/paper/scissors over many a single copy.
They are a good natured, if slightly aggressive type, at least where their students reading options are concerned… I really like them 🙂
After all of that excitement, our gal (giggle… me again) was in dire need of a vacation and so traveled south to warmer shores and white water.
And then… she (or if you are following… that would be, yours truly) was packed off to school. Geesh, you’d think, after such a crazy-busy summer, an extra week of vacation would be granted. But the evil King and Queen (my parental units… blech) vetoed such antics.
And so, that brings us present, and back to book business…
The Carpet People by Terry Pratchett and Terry Pratchett the later.
