Blood and Bruises

These are the lengths I go to in order to acquire free books at a library conference. Yes, those are bruises on my arm and blood that dripped from my finger onto my conference schedule, both the result of carrying 325 books from the exhibit hall floor back five blocks to my hotel.

  8. I'm sure this hurt, but that picture is awesome as proof of what we'll do to get books. And free books at that! I can't believe you got 352.
