Well we're down to the wire. Friday midnight is the deadline for submitting your entry to Pimp My Bookcart 2008. We've already got a healthy 45 entries. We can't wait to see yours!
This spring BookExpo America went all-out to let Unshelved readers know about their great show. Our readers were unanimous in their response: "You should have let us know sooner!" It seems that, the world of libraries and schools, time off work and budgets for conferences are often assigned many months in advance. That's why we're telling you in October about the a conference which takes place in May 2009. You can't say we didn't warn you. Click here to find out more about the country's biggest and most important book show, the one we call our favorite library conference, taking place in the land of my birth, New York City. Register today, or at least start whatever long process is required to get you there.
P.S. You may recall that registrees to the 2008 conference were eligible for a number of cool prizes. One of those was appearances in an upcoming Unshelved comic strip. It seemed appropriate to roll those out this week. So please enjoy today's guest stars, Mr. Michael George and his amazing mustache! Michael also gets a free museum print of today's strip.
