I’m off on a trip to meet with booksellers and fellow marketing folk at a 2 day meeting in southern California sponsored by the American Booksellers Association, the most active and innovative retail trade association in the country. In days past I would’ve lugged the laptop, but now I am lucky/unlucky enough to be in possession of the ubiquitous berry du black. I’ll get your comments as posted but no new blog entries 'til Sunday. I do expect to come back with new ideas and just the energy hit of being with booksellers. And possibly with a hangover.
