Before I forget, I want to wish everyone in the U.S. a Happy Fourth of July and everyone in Canada a Happy Canada Day. Those of you who got a long weekend for one of the holidays are probably off somewhere celebrating and not blogging, but we’ll still be here when you get back.
And when I’m forced to skip a week of shelf-stacking, the following week is just too huge. So here we are.
I tried to resist the impulse to pick up stuff at the ALA Exhibits. I didn’t totally succeed. I’ve been eagerly awaiting The Aeronaut’s Windlass, and hadn’t seen an eARC anywhere. While the print ARC is HUGE, I just had to scoop one up when I saw it. Art in the Blood is a Holmes pastiche, so it leapt into my bag. Deanna Raybourn is starting a new series, so I couldn’t resist A Curious Beginning. I also picked up a print ARC of Armada to pass around, even though I already have it in eARC. Galen raced through it on the plane home, and I think it’s going to make the rounds at his office.
