I have finally finished unpacking the books and other items I bought or won at last week’s ACFW Conference. It took a while because I bought several books, several books were free and I bid on the My Book Therapy Ponderers Gift Basket at the Silent Auction. The Silent Acution is held each year at the conference to raise funds for the Scholarship Fund. The fund is used to send deserving writers to the Conference. The basket was filled with over $450.00 worth of items: two books written by Susan May Warren (one book is co-authored by Rachel Hauck) on how to write fiction, a small handmade tote bag with two coffee mugs – one being handmade; a stunning Martin Pen; two journals; a 2011 planner; all kinds of office supplies – cute note pads, paper clips, etc., “Double Take” by Janness Walker and a fun book for little boys titled “Little Big Chief and the Bear Hunt” by Delores Topliff. I’m sure I’ve forgotten something, but you can tell by the list the basket, which I also liked and fits in great with my basket collection, was packed.
I came home with a total of 16 books. 🙂 Now if I can just find the time to read them!!
In putting away all the books, I discovered that somehow I had ended up with two copies of a couple of books. Although I did not purchase this book at the ACFW Conference, it is an excellent devotion/Bible study for Christian Writers. This second edition book is “Write His Answer, A Bible Study for Christian Writers” by Marlene Bagnull.
I am giving away one copy, so please leave an answer and tell me why you need/want this book. The drawing will be held on Friday, October 1.
And finally, a few last pictures from the conference and trip home:
