Top Ten Goodies from the Bookshelf to you...

Despite the mucus dripping from my nose like yolk from an egg and a blazing sore throat, my mom and I made it back from the Southern Independent Booksellers Association annual convention... And we brought back plenty of goodies for you (no worries, I handled them all with gloves and was sure not to cough on them).

First, we have free Advanced Reading Copies of the following titles (in no particular order) :
1. How Bobby Bowden Forged a Football Dynasty by Mike Freeman
2. The Girl on Legare Street by Karen White (autographed-- a great grab for Charlestonphiles)
3. Committed by Elizabeth Gilbert
4. Drive: The Surprising Truth about What Motivates Us by Daniel Pink (you'll have to wait for me to finish this one)
5. Confessions of a Rebel Debutante By Anna Fields (autographed-- my mom read this out loud on our drive back. hysterical and relatable!)

Second, we also have some autographed copies for sale:
1. Last Light Over Carolina by Mary Alice Monroe
2. Serena by Ron Rash
3. Going Away Shoes by Jill McCorkle
4. Yoknapatawpha: A Study of Faulker's County by George C. Stewart
5. The Financial Lives of Poets by Jess Walter
and many more!!

And the one that Carrie and I will selfishly not give you... The Swan Thieves by Elizabeth Kostova will be on the shelf in January!
