I just want to write someone’s favorite book.

Yay! Found a Sunday NYT in the airport!
Happy birthday, NEVER FADE! I’m so excited US/Canada residents are finally able to start reading today! I don’t have release information on foreign editions, but each publisher might have the dates up on their website.
It should be in a good number of B&Ns and Walmarts, but you might want to call ahead and make sure they’ve stocked it. If you have an ereader, you can obviously download it instantly. :)
More good news: THE DARKEST MINDS is still 99 cents to download on your Kindle, iPad, and Nook.
Let me know what you think of NEVER FADE, but please be sure to mark your spoilers!
Thank you all SO much again for your excitement and patience over the past few months!! I wish I had some words of wisdom to say on this occasion, but, really, I just hope you guys enjoy it!
Hey, good news! For a limited time (I’m not sure how long) you can download THE DARKEST MINDS for 99 cents if you’re in the US/Canada! Or, if you already own a digital copy, you can gift it to a friend or family member you think will be into it.
If you’re outside of the US, you can try changing the settings on your reading device to say you’re in the US—some people have had luck downloading IN TIME that way, too. Likewise, both Nook and Kindle have program you can download onto your computer and read that way.
Book 2, NEVER FADE, comes out on Tuesday the 15th! Now’s a great time to read—you’ll be able to immediately jump into the next part!
Maureen Corrigan reviews Book of Ages by Jill Lepore, a gripping biography about Benjamin Franklin’s youngest sister Jane who lived her life in poverty with 12 children:
Book of Ages is the name of Lepore’s extraordinary new book about Jane Franklin, but to call it simply a biography would be like calling Ben’s experiments with electricity mere kite flying. Lepore says that, in addition to telling Jane’s story, she’s also meditating here on the limits of traditional genres like biography and history, which, by necessity, still favor the lives of public figures. Jane Franklin’s life was mostly lived in the shadows; so to read its traces, Lepore augments her own training as a historian with literary criticism, archeology, sociology, and even some of the techniques of fiction.

I’m so excited to read this! I’m in the middle of re-reading 1776, but this will make for a great companion.
castiel-is-the-angel asked: Hi! Do you happen to know when the paperback edition of TDM is going to be released? I still haven't read it, but I've heard that it's great!
It comes out the same day as NEVER FADE (book 2): October 15th :)
I’ve shared individual ones before, but I’m not sure which ones. So here’s a collection of the first 10 Like—>Try—>Why reader’s advisory graphics I’ve made for the library.
This is SO awesome! Thanks for taking the time to pull this together!
My Tandem author copies came today! I’ve been passing them out like candy in the office, because apparently I don’t understand the concept of “selling” books. This is probably the universe’s way of saying, “Finish your draft of Tether already!” Like, I’m getting to it, okay?
I have my own and it is so beautiful and precious and MINE ALL MINE.
You lucky readers will be able to get your own soon. TANDEM goes on sale October 8th.
And if you’re in New York City, come to Anna’s launch event at McNally Jackson!
WOO HOO! The finished copies are gorgeous!
