This lunchtime saw our first formal meeting of the Carnegie Shadowing group, and they all turned up clutching books and reaching for copies of the shortlist. All thirty four of them. Yup. Thirty four Shadowers this year. Aces.
Sadly this has caused a bit of a crisis in the book stock department, as although we have 4-5 copies of each of the shortlisted books, some of them have yet to be delivered and even then they are we won’t have enough. Luckily, our Shadowers have agreed that they will all buy one copy of one of the books and swap them around. Phew.
Our new site is up and running, and there should be reviews trickling through over the next day or two, as those who grabbed books last Friday are already finishing them off.
This and NaNoWriMo are my favourite times of the year. I think I even like them more than Christmas…
