Forty-five boxes of postcards

Random House produced a postcard to promote Boys of Steel. This is what one looks like:

Oh, and this is what 108,000 look like:

That is 45 (heavy) boxes of 2,400 postcards each. Sitting in my front hallway. I would need only a fraction of those; the rest are for Random House's use. But it seems there was a shipping error and the entire run of postcards was sent to me. I'll find out for sure tomorrow.

If you fear you're not one of the 108,000 who will be sent one, the postcard is also blown into every issue of the May 2008 Previews.

5/18/08 addendum: If you'd like to have a stack of postcards to distribute in your store, please let me know. Depending on the type of store, I may well be able to provide!

Oh my gosh, I wouldn't know what to do with even a small percentage of those cards. I know what you'll be doing all summer long.
