Yes, I know I’m three days late for this week’s edition of The Perks of Being a Bookseller, but I have a very good reason to be. I won’t be able to do the scheduled post next Monday and will instead do it the following week. I figured it would be easier to to it now, give an even time period between both posts.
So, to that end, here’s what I received this week.

Miscellaneous ARCs from work and Winterblaze, which I bought, as I am intending on reading the series soon.
Yes, there are duplicates. Expect a giveaway.

More swag… The 5th Wave ARCs have my blurb in it… so these are for friends and loved ones who want them… like my mother, who doesn’t read Science Fiction (but wants a copy because my name is in it).
This blurb…See!
 That never stops happening, even as one grows up, I’ve found.
Manuscripts. Yep.
Penguin sent a sweet promotional mailbag for The 5th Wave. It has stuff in it.

Name tag featuring Cassie Sullivan’s name, the main character from the book.

Said stuff in said bag. Contents include one can of sardines, one mini survival pack (including emergency blankets, fish hooks, safety pins, compass… the works), one distressed teddy bear with Cassie’s brother’s name on it, and one hollowed out journal with a thumb drive in it. The thumb drive has the first few chapters of the book on it.
Nifty. Ten times over. Thanks Penguin.
So yes, that’s the swag for the week. I’m curious to see what will come next week, since the goodies keep getting better and better.
And I’m off to read more. Have a good week, all!
