Registration for the American Booksellers Association's Fifth Annual Winter Institute (Wi5) is now booked to capacity. ABA bookstore and provisional members who would like to add their names to a waiting list should send an e-mail to Wi5@bookweb.org. As cancellations are received, spaces will be filled on a first-come, first-served basis.
Registered booksellers who no longer plan to attend are also asked to notify ABA as soon as possible via e-mail to firstname.lastname@example.org, so that waiting booksellers can fill their places. Registration for Wi5, which will be held from February 3 - 5, 2010, in San Jose, California, is capped at 500.
Reservations at Wi5's host hotel, the Doubletree San Jose, at the special room rate of $115/night are also soldout. Booksellers who no longer need their hotel reservations are asked to contact ABA rather than the hotel, so that waiting booksellers can be assigned their rooms.
