The books were already put up on the shelves with care,
Because no one at Macmillan would be there. ♫♪♫♫♪
Macmillan's offices are closed from 1:00pm on Tuesday, Dec. 24 through New Year's Day and we intend to do a lot of reading while we're off for a long, winter break! We hope you do, too. Remember to get whitelisted* on Edelweiss for access to Macmillan e-galleys. Here's how:
