I had a wonderful time at ALA, met some fabulous people, got to work with some committees, AND got free books! That is what I call a win-win situation! I was there for the awards ceremony, nothing like it! Have already ordered "The Graveyard" and "House in the Night" from Amazon.
Because we have had 2 snow days, I have had time to think about all the cutting edge ideas I heard and ways to implement some of them. I will add more later after I have processed this.
