One Book, One New Orleans. I am enjoying meeting other people interested in literacy and am learning a bit about web development and marketing.
In the next few days, I will be going to 3 bookstores to deliver nomination forms and to talk to the owners. It's not a chore, since anyone who loves books is my new friend.
Not in New Orleans? That's OK. Use this form to nominate a book after reading these instructions. The more choices, the better. I will be narrowing down the longlist to a shortlist, so give me something to think about.
Now, on to coincidences:
BookGirl recently mentioned receiving Believer Magazine bundle. And I am slowly being tempted to this company.
I was talking to the owner of Blue Cypress Books and she showed her McSweeney's Quaterly Concerns, which is part of the McSweeney's Store and includes Believer.
The journals are fabulous. You just don't get a thick magazine; each concern is packaged differently. For example, No. 16 has the journal, a deck of cards, and a comb, which I assume is significant to the narrative of the journal. It comes in a lovely box with 3 pockets. I must spend more time at this bookstore looking at the back issues.
You can also join the Book Release Club, 10 NEW books for $100! The current catalog has many interesting titles and the new books look promising.
