I'm hitting the road soon.  There'll be Bakker bookmarks in major US South-Central cities!

So glorious.

Might have to split this into a thread where "people" (so for right now just MG) post pictures of where their bookmarks have been.

I got my 600 bookmarks on plain white cover stock, cost me about $8.50. I'll be on the road soon and should be able to drop them along the way, hopefully.

Cool stuff :D Might have to do this myself.
Would be interesting if someone finds one of these and traces it back to this thread and comments!

Lol - I don't think Sovin and SR ever talked but we were purposefully working towards making that happen, Curethan. That reminds me... I should finish my spoof of "Frodo Lives!" and intro post for "Who are the Dunyain?" thread.

For my part, I hit up some titles by Abercrombie, Martin, Lawrence, Tolkien, Erikson, Guy Kay, Rothfuss, Salavator, among others.

And once again for documentation, I'm distributing closest to Bakker-Mecca (other than London itself) and THERE WEREN'T EVEN COPIES OF BAKKER IN THE STORE! What the fuck, readers/publishers?!

Off-topic but on Wikia's homepage a big map of Westeros came up and written on it was "Where was Daenerys Targaryen?" Which reminded me of this thread. (Can't seem to find it anymore.) It's an ad for Wikia's maps project. Here is one from the Game of Thrones wiki. It doesn't seem that complicated so perhaps we should make one for the Second Apocalypse series. Or if we're feeling ambitious we could try something like - I know I'm dreaming - those two.

eta: Sorry, just realized that this is way off-topic, so feel free to move/delete/ban.

I mistook the thread's title as "Inseminating Bakker", and was about to dispense a few illuminating ideas.

Never mind, carry on
