We Love Lesa.

We Love Lesa.

We love all librarians equally. Except for the ones that we especially love. Like Lesa Holstine? Why? because she knows that the way into our hearts, and an endless supply of galleys, is talking about our books. But she went above and beyond a normal blog post with this amazing video extravaganza.

Thank you, Lesa!

Penny wins the AGATHA!

Penny wins the AGATHA!

Congratulations to Louise Penny, whose title The Brutal Telling just won the Agatha award!

First the Booklist Top Ten, then an Agatha? And Talia just talked about it in the Booklist Mystery & Crime webinar, which I think is as prestigious as both those awards combined! I think I smell a NBCC award, maybe even a Nobel Peace Prize! Ok, maybe that's a stretch.
