“Maybe you can afford to wait. Maybe for you there’s a tomorrow. Maybe for you there’s one thousand tomorrows, or three thousand, or ten, so much time you can bathe in it, roll around it, let it slide like coins through you fingers. So much time you can waste it. But for some of us there’s only today. And the truth is, you never really know.”

So, this happened over the course of three days at a library conference. 101 galleys, 26 hardcovers for YA. Plus the 53 middle grade books hiding in the back. Plus 15 YA ARCs for a fellow Litsy teen librarian. Not one dime spent, but holy cow, I felt like a one-woman bookmobile hauling this load around the convention center. Guess it’s time to start digging in 😬😳😏
