Thank You for Rocking the Drop Around the World!

Oh, man. You guys around the world were INCREDIBLE! It took three divas an entire week to post all the pics that flew in. There may be a few more to go up, still. Can you believe that?

We had readergirlz dropping books all over the United States. We had drops in Japan, India, and England. Rock the Drop was INTERNATIONAL!

Thanks for helping to celebrate ALA and YALSA's Support Teen Literature Day. It was a massive party. Melissa has been awesome to also collect the drop photos on our new Facebook Fan Page. So please "like" us and stream through that collection.

Our thanks also to our partner in 2011, Figment. They got the word out super well. Their to-do list absolutely rocked, as did their video.

Thanks also to supporters like Seventeen, Boing Boing, GL, and GalleyCat. We heart you!

So one thing's for sure. We'll be rocking the drop next year for Support Teen Lit Day. Let us know if you have any suggestions for the initiative. Now watch for Micol to announce the winning drop! Coming soon...

The books heard (and dropped) 'round the world...

I hope more and more "finders" check in here! I'd love to see/hear where the books ended up.

Me, too, LW! We need to add that request to the bookplate.

Little Willow said...

Lorie Ann: Yes, yes! And a "TAKE THIS BOOK - it's FREE!" for the front.
