Day 4: Convention AM

Posted by Ann Roberts at 8:15 AM
The convention started out with Bruce and Heather talking about the future of BookCrossing and answering questions.

For me, the highlight of the morning was listening to Ottawa-Bill speak about mass releasing. Not so much because of the topic, although it was interesting...Ottawa-Bill is a hoot! A great, entertaining speaker!!

Thanks to Skyring, we are all sitting around eating TimTams that came all the way from Australia.

Book-a-Day by John Allemang of the Globe and Mail talked about his "job" to read a book-a-day. Although for him because of the publishing schedule it is really 4 books a week. :) This is the job I need!!!!

OttawaBill is the best mass-releaser I know ! He is very funny and very sweet too, you're lucky to be meeting him !

I'm sure you bought some books at Book Depot, maybe not as much as Sand, but some must have found their way in your cart !

Keep on blogging and posting pictures, it's almost as if I was there even if I'm 6 hours away from Toronto. Enjoy Ann !
