Still Rocking the Book Drop!

A few more awesome photos from Operation Teen Book Drop have come through. Author Andrea Kramer (her novel NIGHTSHADE is out in October and looks riveting!), Rocked the Drop at the Seward Co-op. Here's to John Green in the cereal aisle!

Second, there's the Chick Lit Book Club at Mt. Blue High School in Farmington, ME. They bought some super-amazing books:

Then students stealthily rocked the drop!

Thanks again for participating, everyone!

I left three books in various places in San Antonio TX--where I was attending an amazing library conference. On the way home, there was a young man in the airport crying. I sat near (not by) him and when he glanced up, I asked if there was anything I could do to help.

His answer: "Make this deployment go by fast." I put out my hand and he gripped it hard for a few minutes, then wiped his face and pulled in a long breath. Then he sat up straight and we talked a little. I saw a book poking out of his travel bag. He said it was "dark stuff, kind of like twilight, but not." So I asked him if he would accept a gift from me and I signed my last copy of Skin Hunger for him. He is in Iraq by now. He is 19. Send him and everyone else in the war zones good thoughts. Please.

Thanks for putting up our info and a pic of us/ our books getting "dropped" onto our library shelves. The Chicks had a great time raising money and giving back to our community. Here's to some even bigger plans for next year!

Andrea Kramer: Oh, that placement is hilarious! Love it! Hope you'll join us in June, when we'll be discussing Paper Towns by John Green.

Chick Lit Book Club: You rock. Thank you for all of the time and effort you put into this -- raising money, trekking to the bookstore, selecting the books, blogging... You truly rocked the drop! :)

Wow, Kathleen.
