In case you hadn’t heard, I love books. LOVE THEM. Here are a few book-related things I’m happy about today:
- The 24 in 48 Readathon: It’s happening tomorrow! There are over 350 participants – AMAZING. And there’s still time to sign up. I’ve picked out what I’m going to try to read. But really, whether you read ten books or ten pages, it’s all about having fun!
- I have just been informed that there’s a new Helen Phillips coming in 2016! THIS IS SO EXCITING. I loooooooooved The Beautiful Bureaucrat. It’s so wonderful and weird. Her new book, Some Possible Solutions, is a collection of short stories. It’s out May 31st. Which is not that far away, really. I mean, January is already half way over! (And if you’ve read The Beautiful Bureaucrat, and/or like weird office books, may I suggest Radio Iris by Anne-Marie Kinney? It’s published by the amazing Two Dollar Radio, a publisher I love so much, I permanently marred my flesh for them.)
- I received a few books in the mail this week that I’m really excited to read. Okay, I received a lot of books I’m excited to read. But these are the standouts:
- I just received a digital galley of Death Is Stupid by Anastasia Higginbotham, out April 12 from The Feminist Press at CUNY. I think the title really says it all.
That’s it for today. Hope to “see” some of you at the readathon this weekend!
