This is Kate from Kate’s Book Nook and you have made it to the final hour (as well as the final post). Whether you have done 24 hours or just 1 hour, you have done amazing! I have had so much fun these last three hours chatting with you all and reading your posts and your tweets. You have all made this another great event and I eagerly look forward to the event in October.
Random Fact of the Hour:
The Library of Congress (Washington DC) contains 28 million books and has more than 500 miles of shelving. It would take you eight hours to pass every single book, if you were driving in a car at 70 mph. I’d hate to be the one in charge of dusting.
