Guernsey is Finally Here!!!

Four months ago I was lucky enough to receive an advance readers copy of a wonderful book that made me laugh and think and even cry (a little, I admit it!)
For four months I have been talking to just about everyone I know about this book—staff, customers, friends, family, strangers on the bus. Yes, I enjoyed it that much!

(In fact, I loved it so much that I just re-read it, which is rare in bookselling circles!)

Finally, its publication date has arrived. The Guernsey Literary and Potato Peel Pie Society will be available to the general public Tuesday July 29.

I'm so thrilled I barely know what to say. Other than go grab a copy and enjoy one of my favorite books this summer!

Stay tuned: later this week I'll post my casting for the Guernsey film (which currently only exists in my head....but it's best to be prepared!)

UPDATE: For those of you who haven't been accosted by me yet and would like to know more about the book, you can read my staff favorite (and many, many others) here.
