Well, my cheeky monkeys, the time is almost here! In just over a week, CROC will be cruising its way to a bookstore near you. And the amazing folks at Sourcebooks Jabberwocky are at it again! Check out what I just received in the mail. CROCMARKS!
Paired with stickers and postcards (so you can write your long-lost buds just like Ana does in the book, of course), I think they make a beautiful scene. So I’d like to give some away!
If you’re a teacher, librarian, media specialist or book champion-sort, and would like some crocodiley swag for your classroom for the upcoming year, email me at jesskeatingbooks (at) gmail (dot) com. Every delivery will get a croco-doodle from yours truly along with your swag, and I *promise* not to send you live crocodiles in the mail. UPS would never let me live it down. *UPDATE! The response to the crocodile swag has been INCREDIBLE, so I’m going to need to have some more make up! I’ll update this space when more becomes available!*
P.S In related teacher-bookish news, if you’re looking to stay up to speed on some of the summer releases, you should check out Mr. Schu’s Book Release Calendar! This is a super handy tool, and I’ve already added to my TBR list. (Sorry, wallet.) I was especially thrilled to discover that I share a book birthday with some pretty amazing folks! Don’t forget to support your indies!
P.P.S Sincere hugs and thank yous to everybody who has made this month so magical so far! I’ve said it before, and I’ll say it again: this book-loving community we have is simply the best, and your generosity and spirit never cease to amaze me. I feel so fortunate to be a part of it, and wish I could buy you all giant donuts, Ulysses-style.
