Operation Teen Book Drop!

Ok, so this means the Hottie Series will be postponed one more day...maybe even two, because so much cool stuff has been happening lately! Cool event #1: readergirlz'/GuysLitWire's/YALSA's second Operation Teen Book Drop!

For this amazing event, publishers donated over 8,000 books (in this economy!) to teens stuck in children's hospitals across the country.

I feel so lucky to have had a chance to help with this event, brainstormed by our own brilliant and huge-hearted Justina Chen Headley while she was researching children's cancer wards for her second novel, Girl Overboard. It is a priviledge to work with her, Lorie Ann Grover, Dia Calhoun, and Melissa Walker.

Here is a shot of us with Kira from Children's and Joyce Taylor of KING 5 news (we're sad that diva Melissa is missing!):

Justina, our own Hometown Hero(!), generously shared her cool TV spot to give coverage to the hospital event! I'm going to try to figure out how to convert our Windows Media Center footage into a movie to post later this week.

Thanks to everyone who participated and made this event happen!
