Get Your Gargoyles (and Kitties)


We recently wrote about the advance buzz for Random House’s debut novel, The Gargoyle. We just got an interesting comment on the post from Jana about how readers may respond to the graphic descriptions of sex and painful injuries in the first 75 pages.

You can judge it for yourself; Random House will be giving away copies of the ARC at ALA, booth #2534. To get a copy, you will need a coupon from Library Journal‘s “Aisle by Aisle Guide” (you’ll see people handing them out at the show).

And, while we’re thinking about galleys at ALA, remind yourself to go to the Hachette booth to pick up a copy of Dewey: The Small-Town Library Cat Who Touched the World. You can get the ARC in exchange for a card swipe. Hachette’s booth is #2767. Dewey is one of my favorites of the Fall, but don’t just take my word for it:

I adored Dewey. There are few books that are as memorable; Dewey the Small Town Library Cat will be one of those books that will be etched in my memory for a lifetime. — Jennifer Teitelbaum, Librarian, San Diego County Library
