You can bet we did feel it. The books didn't fall out off the shelves,
but it certainly woke me up, and gave some adrenaline (it was my first
one). Was thinking about getting out on the street, in case the
afterquake would be serious, but went back to sleep. The afterquake
was weaker than the original jolt.
