Some of my most dedicated readers know that I’m good in the kitchen. I’m always workin’ with the heat and mixin’ the ingredients and layin’ surprise concoctions of extreme tantalization upon your tongues!
Well… this Holiday Season I’m stepping away from the charcoal broiler, the freshly oiled cedar planks and the dwarf-sized oak peppermill and I’m stepping back into the ring of Bookseller.
A kind of Bookselling 3.0 Digital Handsell / Best Books of the Holiday Season by the People Who Should Know – the Writers, Booksellers, Editors, Designers, Publicists and other Creators who help bring great books into the world.
The irrepressible Julie Wilson aka the Book Madam (and the artist formerly known as the Seen Reading lady, who may or may not be making a surprise reappearance of her own in a certain iconic American digital periodical) is joining me in largest non alcohol related herding of book publishing professionals in Canadian History.
The 2009 Advent Books Calendar
Julie and I are working to gather some of the best people that we know in books – from the booksellers to the writers to all points on the publishing compass – to bring you their selections for the best books for gift giving this holiday season.
We’ll be publishing 3+ book reviews a day on out TBA Blog. Each review will be written in 25 words or less!
That’s right. Maximum enthusiasm, minimum space.
Micro-reviews of the best books available to make your shopping easier.
If you’re in publishing and we haven’t contacted you yet and you’re sure that we would because, seriously, what are we, crazy? Then drop me a line sean[at]booksontheradio[dot]ca.
It all starts on December 1.
