This is the time of year that Talia and I are of the busier of the busy bees (maybe that's why we're buzzing so much lately??) and we end up missing some of the totally rad week-to-week Macmillan excitement.
So when Talia paused for 1/23 of a second to sip her coffee this morning and glanced at The New York Times Book Review Best Sellers list for May 27, she did a double-take and then called me in to talk about how many of our awesome books are on the list.
We high-fived about it.

FARTHER AWAY by Jonathan Franzen
"The theme of human struggle against the pulls of solipsism and narcissism illuminates every page of the novelist’s essays."
OBLIVION by Héctor Abad. Translated by Anne McLean and Rosalind Harvey.
"Abad’s highly personal coming-of-age story is also a sociopolitical portrait of Colombia."
The 2012 RUSA reading list is in!
Between the noshable hors d'oeuvres, the wine, and the charming company, we had a riotous time at the announcement ceremony in Dallas. Yes, we were whooping and hollering when they listed books we love!
Don't believe me? Boom: proof.
Library Journal reported, "Some of the announcements were greeted by quite a bit of excitement, especially from Robin Nesbitt (on Twitter, @robnesb) of Columbus Metropolitan Library; Alene Moroni (@surlyspice) of King County Library System, WA; Talia Sherer (@macmillanlib) of Macmillan Library Marketing; and Stephanie Chase (@acornsandnuts) of Mutnomah County Library." So, yeah, we were excited.

A Father’s Journey to Understand His Extraordinary Son.

THINKING, FAST AND SLOW
"In this comprehensive presentation of a life’s work, the world’s most influential psychologist demonstrates that irrationality is in our bones, and we are not necessarily the worse for it."
Also, did you see this absurdly awesome suit jacket that they made out of the top ten book jackets? Seems like it might wrinkle easily, though.
