Here in Chicago we're having a great time at ALA. We've talked with thousands of librarians, heard some great stories, and signed a lot of books. Only one problem - we're almost out of things to sell. So here's what we're going to do. Monday morning we'll continue to sell our remaining shirts, bags, hats (and even a few hoodies) while supplies last, and we'll take orders for Reader's Advisory, which we'll ship to you for free when we get home. Early afternoon we'll pack up the booth for good. And we'll skip Tuesday, a day that is widely known to be a barren post-apocalyptic wasteland in the exhibit hall anyway.
For those of you we disappointed by not bringing enough stuff, all I can say is that we're disappointed too. Predicting this stuff is notoriously difficult. We'll try to do better next conference.... that's Comic Con International, in just ten days!
