It was a bit disappointing that both Buzz Aldrin & Herman Wouk wouldn't sign anything but their recent book. It was more annoying that no one let us know right away, so we wasted a few hours in their lines first...
Overall it was a good show, but it looked smaller than usual to us, and did not seem to have as many A-list authors as previous years. Parking seemed higher, and the food vendor prices were just as outrageous, but the crowds were easier to get through, and we didn't need to run up and down the stairs a dozen times. We were able to meet almost everyone on our list, but our list was smaller than in previous years. Still, despite being a bit less than previous years, this has always been a good show, and this year was not an exception.

Ordered more postal supplies from USPS.

Picked & started to process online orders.
