Umm... Hello. This is Talia. Anne has the day off today, but I just had to tell you that ELEANOR & PARK is now available as an e-book in LIBRARIES. Happy e-book birthday to Rainbow Rowell.
This morning Anne "the Sweet Teeth" Spieth presented all the latest and greatest titles at the New York Public Library Romance Book Buzz. She also brought homemade chocolate chip cookies in lieu of books saying, "My mom always told me the fastest way to someone's heart is through their stomach."
While sadly we can't share any of her cookies with you, we CAN share our love of great romance titles (har har!): everything from contemporary/paranormal/historical romance to sizzling hot erotica, New Adult, and books OK for YA!
Take a look at the full Edelweiss collection, which has even more red-hot reads than what was presented (120+ titles!!!), download the handout of presented titles, and check out the hijinx that ensued while live-tweeting the buzz at #RomanceNYPL.
