Sought out James Ellroy, Diana Paxson, Lisa Scottoline early. Managed to get a ticket for Eric Carle, then saw Amber Benson, but missed Laura Numeroff. Found Ian McDonald, T.C. Boyle, & Paul Feig, but not Henry Winkler. Saw Francescia Lia Block but missed S.E. Hinton. Did catch Jon Scieszka but missed Michael Hague.
The Comix Strip which they made much of in the paper and online was quite disapointing, there were only 4 good booths, and 2 of them should have been over in the book section.

A Castle of Books in Stanton is one of thousands of stores around the world celebrating the comic book art form on Saturday, May 2nd. On Free Comic Book Day, over two million comic books will be given away by participating stores, introducing as many people as possible to the wonders of comic books!
Purchased some old, and some leather, books.
Another purchase of a stack of more recent classics.
Pile of trades, from which we could only take a few things.
434 pieces spam email from yesterday - not counting the junkmail that isn't actual spam.
Finished packing the online orders... finally.

3 boxes of mmpbs shelved.
A large collection of Lawrence Block, and Martha Grimes mysteries shelved.
8 boxes of mmpbs sorted.
Several large batches of trades, from which not a whole lot was taken, but a few good things.
The back corner flooded, the unit next door must have over flowed something, we can't figure out what, and the water seeped under the wall and got the carpet all wet, and the Reptile store too.

Culled a few boxes, shelved a few hardcover books. Put a stack on the $1.00 carts.
Packed the online orders.
Renewed AT&T phone & DSL, tried to get a hold of datavo but it they won't even return calls for new service, suspect if there was a problem they'd be worse.
