The Big Book Drop - 471!
Monday, September 29, 2014
Saturday's Big Book Drop - an effort to get books for the great people at English PEN and Give a Book - gathered in a whopping 471 books. That's a lot of readers hauling a lot of carrier bags on a warm September day! (More here.)
Two dozen raffle prizes all went off to new homes as well. Thanks to publishers Newcon Press, Hodder & Stoughton, authors Lauren O'Farrell, Rebecca Levene, James Dawson, Frank Westworth and Lavie Tidhar, and the many, many folks that donated cool books from their personal collections.
Plus, a big thank you to our friends at English PEN and our glamorous and vociferous partners at The Book Smugglers.
And the biggest thank you of all: everyone who came out and donated books. You're awesome.
