Weekly Update

On Monday, I am heading to Baltimore for Winter Institute, the annual conference for booksellers. Then on Friday, I am zipping from there up to Philadelphia for the American Library Association's Midwinter Meeting. It’s a wonderful opportunity for me to network with booksellers and librarians, and learn what they are hearing from readers. Authors are going to be in attendance at both conferences talking about their upcoming books, which gives me a chance to scout out what we want to be sharing with you this year. It’s already a great year for reading…and we see a lot more coming!

On Sale This Week

In this newsletter, you will find books releasing the weeks of January 13th and January 20th 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 Winter Reading Contests and Feature, which we have brought back for a sixth year. On select days in January and February, we are hosting a series of 24-hour contests spotlighting a book releasing this winter (or a recently published title that we would like to get into your hands now) and giving five lucky readers a chance to win it.

We also encourage you to enter our Word of Mouth and Sounding Off on Audio contests for an opportunity to win some fabulous hardcovers and audiobooks. And please be sure to vote in our latest poll about your reading goals for 2020.

Finally, we are giving you a preview of Gena Showalter’s upcoming paranormal romance, THE DARKEST KING, which releases on February 25th and is the latest entry in her Lords of the Underworld series. To become a king of the underworld at long last, William must resist an irresistible beauty --- or a curse will ensure his end.

It is with a heavy heart that I announce this will be my last newsletter. I’ve been with The Book Report Network for the past seven years and serving you serious (and not so serious!) pop culture and book content for the past six. If you’ve been keeping count, you’ll know that’s roughly 150 newsletters, give or take a few. Wow wow wow!
