(Newser) – Some 24,000 pages of eagerly awaited emails from Sarah Palin’s time as governor have been released, and journalists are diving in—some with public volunteers, notes the Anchorage Daily News. So far, no headlines; indeed, a Palin rep is encouraging “everyone” to read them. The reporters need no encouragement, it seems: Around 30 of them were jammed in a small room in a Juneau state building with three camera crews, all awaiting the boxes, reports the Los Angeles Times.

“The thousands upon thousands of emails released today show a very engaged Governor Sarah Palin being the CEO of her state,” her spokesman said in a statement. "The emails detail a governor hard at work." Planning to peruse the material yourself? The New York Times has a searchable archive already up, and Pro Publica offers a reader’s guide.
