At WotS, there was much discussion regarding possibilities for next year's event and some which can be implemented right away! Here are the two main points which were discussed between book talk and coffee:

1) T-shirts - this was talked about at more than one occasion and, personally, I think this is a fabulous idea! I'm going to be looking into some of our options and then posting some info. This may even be run as a design contest to be voted on by the group.

2) Table at WotS - This may be a great idea. Rather than paying for a full table, I have struck a tentative deal with the PBS for sharing of table consts. This would allow us to have a permanent space where we could release books and handout info on bookcrossing. This seemed to be a winning idea.

What do you think? Let us know!

The t-shirts are a great idea. The main element would be the book crossing logo, one would assume.
The table is also good. If Portugal is willing to share space we should be able to share costs. tongue The only difficulty, for those who have never staffed a table here, is that it can be very cold. You need warm feet in particular. Even so, you get really nice people at an event like this (us, for example.) Book Crossing is fun. Word on the Street is fun. Both of them are about books and reading. What's not to like? Onward and upward!

I like this idea, t-shirts and sharing the table. I noticed that the tables on the dark side of the library (I've always loved that album), were darn cold. I'll plan on wearing my Sorels.

I had a thought.... (they do actually happen biggrin ) I am part of a few groups on Yahoo. Two of those groups are:
LOTR:
http://ca.groups.yaho...­
BC Costuming:
http://groups.yahoo.c...­

I got to thinking about WotS and the fact that many members of these two groups are into fiction and fantasy that began as books AND they (like hubby and I) are hobby costumers. Then I also got to thinking about some of our younger members and how they got into LOTR only by the movies and how tools like TV and Movies should exist to encourage the kids to read the books (whereas some of us started with the books and graduated to movies/TV) so... I was wondering.... If themarina (hey there) hooked up with Kiran (Organiser for Mellyn Annui) and Jeff (Organiser for BC Costumers) we could do some encouragin through dress up and maybe get some of the costumers out to WotS and/or loan costumes to people (many of us have two or three) so we can attract a well rounded crowd. I know we (Martin and I) have costumes for LOTR as well as The Lion, The Witch and The Wardrobe... and we're not the only ones.

Think about it.

As far as WotS goes I'll definitely be working the calligraphy table that day. As soon as I have a shift time I could arrange to help with the table.
