Next week Tuesday I leave for New York and BEA. If you follow blogs and tweets about @BEA15 it sounds like a giant race, everybody jockeying for position to get as many ARCs and signed books as possible. You know what crosses my mind when I think of that? The pain of getting them home. And to be completely honest, I so much prefer reading on a Kindle that I avoid book-books wherever possible. Nostalgia for the printed page? Somehow I’m missing that.
So I’m thinking, why bother standing in line for books I won’t want? And it comes to me: you may want them. And there’s the bigger drawing coming up for the signed ARC of The Gilded Hour.
Here’s the new plan: More stuff for you.
I’ll see if I can grab a copy of Hoffman’s newest, not out until the fall.
I’m going to get as many interesting books as I can while I’m at BEA, and whoever wins The Gilded Hour ARC will get a bigger pile o’ books, too. Now, if you’re DownUnder or someplace else far away, I’m going to send them by boat. But I will send them.
And wait, there’s more. Whatever swag I pick up, I’ll include. So how’s that for an offer? While I’m at BEA I will tweet when I nab a book or something else to include in the Big Box. And if anything interesting happens. So keep an eye on me @rosinalippi @BEA15 and be sure
to register for the drawing.
