New Post for 14 June 2013

For them as has been paying me any attention at all, it will come as no shock to you that I've been bingeing on books here lately. I've been influenced by my many friends on Goodreads and LibraryThing, and their hugely acquisitve impulses as recorded there.

I got my latest installment (fifteen books!) of Keeping-Up-with-the-Biblioholics books today. All of them are from Livingston Press, all of them are hardcovers, and all of them were half price with free shipping. That is one HELL of a bargain. They publish story collections, good, solid literary fiction, and good, old-fashioned fun books by unknown or underknown authors. And, as a bonus, the annual Tartt First Fiction Award gets $1000 and publication for its prize winners. The titles with asterisks beside them have my review on the Goodreads book page linked. I praise them all, and I mean my praise. Too few publishers have the freedom that Livingston Press has to publish good work.

Take advantage of the sale, plus help support indie book publishing! When I get their catalog, it's like a crack dealer made a home delivery. Until 21 June, you can get books half price with free shipping in their Moving Sale!

We Have A Pie 4 stars
The Brick Murder: A Tragedy, and Other Stories 4 stars
The Galaxie and Other Rides 4.5 stars
Green Gospel 4 stars
For You, Madam Lenin 4 stars

The sale ends on 21 June 2013. It is so very worth a browse through their website. Half price and free shipping...take a chance!
