Hello and Welcome!

Red House Books is going through a bit of a update!

I've always had a pretty clear vision of what I wanted this space to be but I've been detoured from my path by...lots and lost of other people's opinions and ways of doing things...

I'm committed to this little chunk of the interweb but I've also branched out into other places so! Now it's time to think of Red House Books as more of a hub of all things me! And Me is a hell of a lot of book love!

Stay tuned!

In My Mailbox - April 22, 2012

In My Mailbox is hosted by The Story Siren :)

This week I have 1 fabulous book to show you!
Or rather, 20 copies of 1 fabulous book!

I picked up my World Book Night box yesterday!

The first U.S. World Book Night is tomorrow April 23rd. For those of you that don't know:
      "World Book Night is an annual celebration designed to spread a love of reading and books. To be held in the U.S. as well as the U.K. and Ireland on April 23, 2012. It will see tens of thousands of people go out into their communities to spread the joy and love of reading by giving out free World Book Night paperbacks."
-From their Website

My book is Wintergirls by Laurie Halse Anderson
The printing they did for World Book Night is fantastic - there is information about the event on the inside covers as well as a list of all World Book Night books on the back.

I'll be giving these copies out all week, starting tomorrow - a little nervous as I don't usually talk to strangers but I'd do just about anything for the love of books!

Anyone else participating in World Book Night tomorrow?
Where are you handing out your books?
