Done, Done, and Done.

Woo what a rush! Happy Support Teen Literature Day everybody!!! *clappshappilyingirlishway* I just got back from dropping my books and let me just tell you it's a LOT harder to leave you're books in a random public location then people make it out to be! XD Plus for one of the books I had to sit there watching a guy eat pizza around the book cause I had to drop them at Peter Piper,

My books were The Luxe by Anna Godbersen, and Love Stargirl by Jerry Spinelli.


There they are after I'd put in my bookplates and everything...

And here's what I wrote inside them...!




Then where I "dropped" them. hehe *likespictures*




That's my sister's hand as she tries to be sneaky and get in on the book dropping...XD naw really I was a little embarrassed to be taking pictures of books that I was putting in the booths (and then running giddily away from...) so I asked her to come sit with me while I took the picture so it wouldn't look quite as weird. NOT sure we succeeded.... e_e..... ANYWAYS!

It was such a rush but at the same time kinda sad to leave my books somewhere public like that, especially cause Peter Piper is NOT the cleanest place on the block (but still, their pizza is amazing >_<). Anyways I was soo eager to drop one that I did one when we first got there, but that way a mistake cause then I had to watch the person eating around it, and that was.... well really hard to watch.... it's like "Here take these napkins sir!" >_< But oh well... A few times I was really tempted to walk up and say, "Hey, sorry, I accidentally left my book here...." so I could go find someone who seemed more bookish to leave it by, but that wouldn't have been in the spirit of the book drop so I just left it alone even though it was killing me slowly inside....

Anyways on a lighter note, I did the drop and I loved it even though it was hard! XD I might do this more often just because it'll make me giggle. xD But I had a FUN time and all thanks to the Readergirlz! :P Thanks for setting this up ladies!

How'd all your book drops go? Did any of you post about it? I'd love to hear! And you know what this whole book drop thing has put me in such a good mood (XD I know....) So I'll give away a copy of....

I was a little nervous about my book drop, too! I kept thinking, "Oh, where will these books end up?" I really wanted them to find a good home. ;)
