I just had to pack into mailing boxes my signed copy of John Green’s new book The Fault In Our Stars (Dutton), along with all of those books the publishers gifted me with. (THANK YOU ALA Midwinter Venders!)
ALA wisely invites the U.S. Post Office to bring their services to a corner of the convention floor so that we can use their boxes and tape to secure our free stuff for the ride home. I came here with 38 pounds of suitcase and I can’t afford the airline’s overweight charge, so it’s a relief to have an alternative mode of transportation for all of those lovely books.
However, I really wanted to start reading Stars, so it’s a little heart-breaking too. Oh well, I hear that it’s not a book to be read around strangers in an airplane unless you don’t mind crying around strangers in an airplane.
