It's no secret that the Capstone book bags are a hot commodity at any trade show or event — I've heard enough stories of booths being rushed at opening and experienced it for myself several times, so I feel pretty comfortable vouching for the validity of that statement. So when I had the chance to attend the first day of our Capstone Classroom sales meeting earlier this week (held in Chicago this year!) and walked in to see these beauties decorating the backs of the chairs, I was more than a little excited.
Aside from being adorable, this year's "Read a Book & Live Happily Ever After" bag speaks to what so many readers love about books — the ending. And while there may not always be a "happy ending" per se, immersing yourself in a book opens up a world of possibilities. You can live in a book or a story as long as you choose, and inhabiting that world and coexisting with your favorite characters does offer the chance to live happily ever after — for however long you want. What do you think? What's your favorite book ending? And while you're at it, what's been your favorite Capstone bag?
