Over the past year we've introduced you to BookReporter.com, featuring book reviews and news, and ReadingGroupGuides.com, featuring resources for book clubs. These are both products of the fertile mind of our friend Carol Fitzgerald of The Book Report.
Last year Carol started speaking to us about a new web site devoted to graphic novels, and bounced many ideas off us. I even had a (minor) hand in the site design. By now GraphicNovelReporter.com has had a chance to really mature and come into its own, and I think you'll find that it is a very helpful resource indeed for librarians, teachers, and readers of all types. Please take a few minutes to explore all that it has to offer, and I'm sure you'll agree.
There are a lot of comic cons but there's only one Comic Con, and Unshelved will be there! But not alone! Because we're sharing a booth with the awesome, the talented, the you-just-saw-one-of-his-comics-yesterday Jorge Cham of Piled Higher and Deeper.
This Unshelved/PhD combinatorial explosion of webcomics righteousness will be on display at Booth 2300. That's at the very front of the exhibit hall, right of center, roughly between Diamond and DC. If you happen to walk in through the correct door you'll be looking directly at us.
While supplies last we'll be selling our newest book Reader's Advisory by itself and in a couple of priced-to-sell bundles you won't be able to resist. We'll also have a selection of our best-selling shirts, bags, and hats. Jorge will be bringing a similar set of PhD merchandise for your perusal.
But the best part, the coolest part, the part that will make you say WOW is the incredible, never-before-seen thing we'll be GIVING AWAY while supplies last. At our booth. Booth 2300. Come early and come often.
But wait, there's more! Because on Thursday afternoon at noon Gene and I will be giving our talk A Funny Thing Happened on the Way to the Library at the Seuss Room at Geisel Library on the UCSD campus. If you've never heard us speak you've never lived. And it, too, is free!
