Happy Friday! At the end of each week, we’ll be rounding up some interesting book news for you and giving away one of our latest titles. So stay tuned for some free books!
Last week was BEA (Book Expo America) , which is an annual publishing trade show where booksellers, buyers, bloggers, librarians, authors, and other bibliophiles meet to talk about books. Chris Colfer (aka Kurt Hummel on “Glee”) hosted the Children’s Book and Author Breakfast, people got a lot of free books, authors like Veronica Roth signed books, and sales people like me had lots of meetings to sell books. Here are a few quick pictures I snapped.
In other book news:
Thirty Books Everyone Should Read Before They’re Thirty (I’ve only read 11 out of the 30 so I guess I have a busy 2 years ahead of me.)
Are you mourning the season’s end of Mad Men like I am? 10 books to read when Mad Men is over.
A tent that looks like a book. A bit expensive but pretty awesome.
And finally for this week’s give-away…
Technically it’s a book for kids but there’s some pretty serious stuff that goes on in this book that’s appropriate for any age. It’s written by the author of the Animorphs series which I totally grew up reading, did you? THE ONE AND ONLY IVAN is a sweet and thoughtful story about a silver-back gorilla and a baby elephant. To enter the give-away, comment below with what you’re reading now, or what you want to read, or what you think about the blog so far. We’ll pick a winner randomly.
Good luck and have a lovely weekend!
