Deb sent me this screen cap of a cover image that's… very popular.
Deb says, “I thought you'd find this as funny as I did. I noticed a month or so ago that there were *a lot* of covers using this photo. It's becoming more and more common to use covers from what must be a very small set of pictures, I think, or maybe I'm just noticing it more. This particular cover is obviously over the top popular!
And it makes the title of this one sort of ironic, given what comes up in the “also bought”…”
Clearly the realm of stock photography needs a few more well-lit shots of two dudes in bed. Stat!
I am fascinated by the photos of the tent that are…flowered? Where do you get a tent that's made of my grandmother's bedsheets? That's awesome! It'd be like sleeping under childhood memories. Or eating petit fours, then sleeping. You know, priorities.
Instead of flowers, grab a map, a flashlight, bottled water, a compass, and possibly some emergency flares because the RWA literacy signing map (PDF) has been posted and I am, alas, very confused.
I live in the NY metro area and have any number of interstate combinations to get from point A to point B. It's like an Olympic sport in my husband's family, deciding the best route to go when driving somewhere. I think my father in law might own 8 GPS devices, all different. I may need to borrow two because that map is befuddling me the more I look at it. There's the tables where Folks With Long Lines go, as usual, and there's some…grouping of authors. I'm going to have to study the map to navigate the signing, I think, unless there's a code key I haven't figured out.
Courtney Milan's explanation of her location is probably the best one yet. I'm going to dress as Ms. Pac Man.
If you're going to the Literacy Signing, which authors are you most looking forward to seeing?
(And if you're attending, Emma Petersen has a great page of local info about the hotel and surrounding area.)
