May 13th is slowly creeping up on us, and before we know it we'll be en route to New Orleans for the annual RT Booklovers Convention! We were all RT Virgins once, and we know it can be a little overwhelming packing for your first RT Con. So we asked seasoned RT veterans the biggest question we know is on your mind — what do you absolutely need to pack? Below are several fantastic suggestions via Twitter and Facebook to help put your mind at ease.
These are all amazing suggestions. Comfy shoes are a must, you'll be on your feet for long, fun-filled days! Definitely do not forget to pack your phone charger, so you can meet up with friends, and — oh yeah, check in on your family back home. Bringing along a bunch of pre-made contact cards for easy raffle entries (they should include your name, email address, cell phone number and address. Business cards or address labels work great!) and pre-made shipping labels addressed to yourself so you can mail all the books and swag you collect, will make your life way easier. (There will be shipping available on-site at the convention hotel, and USPS post offices nearby.)
