They like me, they really like me!

When I staggered into the kitchen this morning, barely awake, the radio was on. I heard Renée Montagne on NPR's Morning Edition say, "...really showed some confidence in April."

Turned out she was talked about consumers and the economy, but what if....

Not too late to get in on the ARC tour for Girl, Stolen


It's still not to late to get in on the ARC tour for Girl, Stolen.

Here’s the description: “In Girl, Stolen, 16-year-old Cheyenne Wilder is napping in the back of the car while her stepmom fills her prescription. Before Cheyenne realizes what’s happening, someone is stealing the car - with her inside. Griffin hadn’t meant to kidnap Cheyenne; all he planned to do was take the car. But when Griffin’s dad finds out that Cheyenne’s dad is the president of a powerful corporation, everything changes - now there’s a reason to keep her. How will Cheyenne survive this nightmare? She’s not only sick - she’s blind.”

Girl, Stolen comes out in October, but currently two Advanced Readers Copies (ARCs) are zipping back and forth across the US. Each is making stops at the homes of interested readers, who will then send it on in turn.

Would you like your home/office/school to be a pit stop on the road trip for Girl, Stolen? Then send your name and address to me at aprilhenrymysteries at yahoo dot com. The only catch is that once you get it, you should read it fairly soon, because there are more readers waiting after you. And you have to pony up for postage to mail it to the next person in line. But that's it.

So what are you waiting for? Get your name on the list!

Your laugh for the day - what BookExpo 2024 will look like

This piece in Publishers Weekly by author Gary Shteyngart had me laughing out loud.. It's supposed to a report on BookExpo 2024 and begins:
====
I am delighted to report that the 2024 Book Expo America was a smashing success, shattering every record imaginable! Over 40 people attended, an increase of roughly 5% over last year's 38. Once again, the Expo was held at Ruth Cohen's apartment on Riverside Drive (thank you, Ruthie!). Barnes & Bordles set up a nice little stand downstairs in the boiler room, trying to sell off a small portion of the roughly 92 million remainders from fiscal years 2010 through the present. Jimmy the doorman couldn't have been more helpful in getting the attendees into the elevator and up to Ruthie's apartment. (Not an easy task, believe me, since so many of us have ambulatory issues.)
