Weekly Update

We had a big birthday in our office this week. Our brilliant Editorial Director, Tom Donadio, turned 40! He has been with us since he was 23, and to me he is ageless. If you, like all of us at TBRN, would like to wish him a great milestone birthday, drop him a note. We celebrated with pizza and Entenmann’s cake, two of Tom's favorites. He pays attention to EVERY detail of EVERY site --- and he does it with total grace and calm. He is a real treasure.

On Sale This Week

In this newsletter, you will find books releasing the weeks of February 11th and February 18th that we think will be of interest to Bookreporter.com readers, along with Bonus News, where we call out a contest, feature or review that we want to let you know about so you have it on your radar.

This week, we are calling attention to our "What's Your Book Group Reading This Month?" contest on ReadingGroupGuides.com, where three book groups will win 12 paperback copies of AN AMERICAN MARRIAGE by Tayari Jones. The deadline for your entries is Wednesday, March 6th at noon ET.

Also, please click on the covers above for our reviews of three books that released last week: CONNECTIONS IN DEATH, book #48 in J. D. Robb's In Death series featuring homicide cop Eve Dallas, who fights to save the innocent --- and serve justice to the guilty --- on the streets of New York; THE WEDDING GUEST by Jonathan Kellerman, which finds psychologist Alex Delaware and detective Milo Sturgis unraveling a shocking crime at a raucous wedding reception; and THE LOST MAN, a new stand-alone novel from Jane Harper, in which two brothers meet in the remote Australian outback when the third brother is found dead.

Finally, we are spotlighting FINDING DOROTHY, which is now in stores. In her latest novel, Elizabeth Letts tells the story behind THE WONDERFUL WIZARD OF OZ --- the book that inspired the iconic film --- through the eyes of author L. Frank Baum’s intrepid wife, Maud.
