Hello again, folks. I’m a bit late today in showing off the Perks that I acquired this last week. Time got away from me this morning watching the ALA awards! I’m excited to read the Newbery books that I haven’t read yet… which are all of them, unfortunately.
I’m very behind.
So, onto this week’s edition of The Perks of Being a Bookseller.
Enjoy the book porn. 

Remember how in last week’s Perks I said I was waiting for Random House to show up? Well, they showed up, the very same day I typed that line, coincidentally.
Random House likes to send me all of their doubles all at the same time.
Giveaways anyone?

Swag from HC for the upcoming Kim Harrison event at the bookstore I work at. Yay! A tee-shirt from the pubs that fits! Squee!!!
(They like to send me smalls, which I can never fit over the… erm… “girls”.)

…However… whoever printed up the Tee-Shirts forgot to include LANSING, MI to the tour info. We’re closing the tour, and we are not included at the bottom under Seattle…
 …grr bitches!!! Grr…

Miscellaneous swag through the store, included a signed Sarah Dessen ARC (it’s a duplicate, the sister copy is up for grabs in this contest… but I am keeping the signed one for meselves).
(Also, I recieved a tee-shirt for The Testing, which I had to pass onto my co-worker… because of, you know, the “girls” thing again.)

Lovely finals from the fine folks at HC. So excited for these.
… and so is Obicat, who hams up every book picture I ever take at some point.

I kinda want to send this to Harpercollins New York as a thank you card.
– “Oh hai! I love my Harpercollins books. Please send me more!”
Signed, the Obicat. –
Think that will get me more swag? I think so.
So, that’s the end of this week’s edition. I’m off to finish reading Of Beast and Beauty by Stacey Jay, which is really good.

I still have to read Under the Never Sky. I started once and wasn’t impressed 30 pages in. But I have heard such great things that I’m planning on going through both of them and trying again… especially since I now have a final of number two. 🙂

It’s hard sometimes to get into a story the few pages in but in my opinion, Under the Never Sky gets pretty interesting towards the middle. Hope you enjoy it 🙂

I try to give it to at least 75 pages but if I am doing a few things at 30 pages, like zoning out, I take it as a sign that I am not into the book at that particular moment in time. And then I veer and come back or just, simply, move on.
