FantasyI have a young lady who recently lost her brother to cancer. She loves reading fantasy fiction but really doesn't want the book to have any death in it. She is looking for something between a 800 and 900 lexile number. Any suggestions?
I really enjoyed it. My one question was about possibilities of books in translation from other countries coming up in the future. This was a great way to present new books. Loved the interview with a real author...always a plus!
How are they going to wrap up the 39 Clues series? They will have to reveal a large amount of clues in each of the last three books, since so few have been revealed in the first 7.
Awesome presentation...glad I did not have to go to New York where most publisher presentations are held! Loved seeing the people behind the books. Seeing Lisa Yee via Skype was a real bonus. Andrea Pinkney can really sing! Thanks for showing art. Good idea to have the notes sheets available. All in all A+ presentation & lineup of Fall 2010 books...I'll be ordering asap so customers can start entering their reserves.
I think that "Empty" by Suzanne Weyn will be very popular. I know the students will snatch up "Framed" by Gordon Korman as soon as I get it on the shelves. Seven other books made it on my 'purchase list'.
I loved the presentation and can not wait to have the books ready for my students! Thank you!
Enjoyed the presentation. The only negative would be that the presentation came too early. It got me excited for books I can't have for 6 months. Especially since a few of the titles would have been perfect tie-ins for the Illinois summer reading theme, "Scare Up a Good Book."
