"Lord! when you sell a man a book you don't sell just twelve ounces of paper and ink and glue - you sell him a whole new life. Love and friendship and humour and ships at sea by night - there's all heaven and earth in a book, a real book." ~Christopher Morley

Just a quick blog today, since yesterday I spent the entire day running a bake sale and helping out at an adoption event for the animal shelter I volunteer was a good day, but that means that today's my only one to do all that catch-up weekend stuff before I go back to work again!

I wanted to mention the May 17-18 Philadelphia Book Festival, which has a tremendous program this year, with all kinds of authors and publishers featuring their work, as well as shows and events for kids and adults alike. Samhain will have a table there, and I'll be handing out promo stuff Saturday and possibly Sunday as well...if anyone's in the area, stop by! The whole day is free.

And I also wanted to put in a plug for The Long and the Short of It's St. Patrick's Day Contest. Look what you can win:

*All Romance Ebooks donated - One Free Download
