Photo Friday: Rocking the Drop!

We wanted to feature just a few of the many people who participated in Operation Teen Book Drop '09 by rocking their own awesome drops around town. THANK YOU! (And thanks to The Brown Bookshelf for that awesome image which totally captures the spirit of drop-rocking!)

Claire Mysko, author of You're Amazing: A No-Pressure Guide to Being Your Best Self, says, "Here I am The Grove in LA. I found a bench right between Anthropologie and Forever 21, where there was quite a bit of teen traffic!"

The delightful Miss Erin went to Baskin Robbins for a three-book drop!

Jen Funk Weber went to a mall in Anchorage to drop Band Geek Love by Josie Blass in front of the movie theater, and then leave Let It Snow by John Green, Maureen Johnson, and Lauren Myracle in the skating rink. Cool! (Read her full blog post here).

Sarah Anne Sumpolec, author of the Becoming Beka series, let her adorable daughter do the dropping!

Beth Kephart, author of the postergirlz-recommended Undercover, left three copies of House of Dance at her old middle school (read her blog post here).

I put a couple of my books around NYC. Did you Rock the Drop? Tell us all about it!

PS-Also thanks to Seventeen magazine for covering the drop and Teen Lit Day!

Totally fun! I'm going to solicit books from others so I have more to drop next year.

PS - Thanks to The Brown Bookshelf for including AK and HI in the map.

Simply collect your long curly hair in a bun and that is all you need to add to your handsome personality. Do not comb the hair and maintain Men hair style a fine look on your head. Their messy wavy look adds texture to them.
