What a cool idea!! While I was waiting to hear if my book deal was going to go through.. I went to the bookstore and told myself "you are going to buy a book from everyone that you know"
I got some great books. And, because I didn't outline my rules to myself clearly, I ended up with a stack the included:
-books I've already read
-books I lalready own
-and a book that the author told me was written under a pen name because he really doesn't even like the book
Even so it was so much fun having a shopping bag (okay 2) full of blue board and SCBWI books!
It would love to pass on my duplicates to verla to say "thank you"
