This is BEA in an e-book. Okay, so it doesn't replace the whole excitement of actually being present at BEA, but hey, for those of us who cannot make it, at least we get to see what some of the buzz is all about. In the introduction, Micheal Cader states, "It's the first time we know of that general readers have had access to so many great books well ahead of actual publication, with click-throughs to pre-order when the stores allow."
In this book you will find a list of 33 books with their cover, synopsis, excerpt, author bio, marketing campaign and info on how to get a copy. The books are divided into 4 categories, Literary, Hot "Buzz" Debuts, Non-Fiction and YA. I scrolled through the list and came up with titles I want to read. Here are some that caught my eye:
The Ruins of Lace by Iris Anthony
Who I Kissed by Janet Gurtler (Canadian author)
In Sunlight and in Shadow by Mark Helprin
John Saturnall's Feast by Lawrence Norfolk
Looking through BEA Buzz Books really got me excited about what's coming out this Fall. A lot of great reading ahead!
Note: This book is rated C = clean read as a reference book only. I cannot vouch that all the book excerpts in this book are clean reads.
