Here is one-third of the NCTE loot we brought back from Texas. We all came home with well over a 100 books (and yes, we did spend some of our own money. When they were offering $$5 or 10 hardbacks and $3 or $5 paperbacks, we couldn’t resist). I was out of room in luggage and wallet by the last day, but someone sitting next to me on one of my flights got 40 new release hardbacks for $28. Professional development, great company, and books galore. You know it’s on my calendar for next year in Philly already!
