This marks the end of my very first week as a paid employee of Book Roots. After two years of making this happen squeezed between three other jobs, with the blood, sweat and book knowledge of my
indentured servants very best friends (Jessica McClendon and Nikki Adkins), I am now dividing my time between only two jobs, and actually getting paid (part-time) to do this one. Thanks to the amazing generosity of author Cornelia Funke and all of our other wonderful supporters, we will soon be getting more books into the hands of more teens, and actually forcing the teens to talk to us…which may be the hardest part.
Unfortunately, this still requires the blood, sweat and book knowledge of any/everyone I know (Jessica and Nikki, you’re not off the hook…), so if you live in the LA area and are interested in coming along as we force our favorite books on unsuspecting teenagers, give me a shout! Kidding aside, be ready to listen, these kids have a lot to say. Also, heaving lifting is required…these books are not going to deliver themselves.
Long live books!!!
