Well, well, well. If it isn't another Unshelved reader... Duck!
I just threw a handful of confetti and glitter and ducks at the screen. You're so welc—Uh oh, did I get some in your eye? No wait, you're just tearing up because you've never felt SO welcome at a blog before! We totally understand.
Whether you're new to this blog, a long time reader, or you clicked on Talia's nose to get here yesterday and wanted to click on my nose today, we're glad you're here! (And if you don't know what I'm going on about, check out the banner ad/masterpiece running over the Unshelved comics this week.)
Like yesterday, we encourage you to browse through our recent posts, take a peek at our digital catalogs, and sign up for our Booklist webinar.
But wait there's more! We have yet another giveaway! And this time it's just the type of bloody thriller that you can't get Talia to stop reading...
We have a small stack of hardcover copies of THE NIGHTMARE by the absurdly charming pseudonymous Swedish writing couple, Lars Kepler!
UPDATE: This giveaway has ended!
Want one? Introduce yourself in an e-mail (to: Library-at-MacmillanUSA.com) that includes your name, the library you work for, and the full mailing address where you would like to receive the book.
Best, (No, you're the best!)
