one of the perks of working @ book soup is getting my mitts on books months before they are published. now, just imagine that instead of a shelf of galleys in the back of the store, there is an entire convention center full of people who want you to read- and promote- their books. it's a bloodbath in there. i write this from the phone as i walk back from the garage because i could not bear the weight of 4 tote bags of free books any longer. and now... back for round two. that's right, there's a whole second hall to see. help me. look for notes on the best upcoming books on here and on literature life. happy reading!
