Convention exhaustion is setting in. It feels like we've been here forever, but it's also a surprise that the convention is halfway over. The entire hotel was awakened by some kind of unclear emergency announcement at 2:30 am, which didn't help with the sleep situation.
I did want to give a shout out to a reader event done right yesterday. The Hot Contemporaries and Sweet Peaches event had a raffle for the swag bags. What that meant is you didn't need to arrive super early. You didn't need to cheat to get all of your author signatures to get your bag. You didn't need to stress. And there were a LOT of bags, so probably half who came left with something. I greatly preferred that to the "first 100 attendees" method of bag distribution.
