The third of three rejections today. Funny, all three came one day after querying, while several queries to other agents remain outstanding weeks after being sent. Ah, the vagaries of querying. (Perhaps "funny" is not the right word to use).

13 days later a rejection:
Thanks so much for contacting me about your book project, but I'm afraid I wouldn't be the best representative for it. Best of luck on your path to publication.
