Website Report

A couple con-goers have canvassed Dealer Rooms and sent URLs for booksellers and other types of sites.

I am now in the middle of checking out lots and lots of links. Revised pages should go to Luis early next week.

Through circumstances over which I have no control, the bookmarks were delayed. They are now printed, and I will be picking them up on Monday. These bookmarks will be deployed to con-going volunteers for positioning on freebie tables.
