The first edition of The Autobiography of Eleanor Roosevelt, above, and our reissue coming out in about a month. We originally published Eleanor’s memoir in 1961 and are quite honored to be bringing it back into print.

Have you been watching The Roosevelts on pbstv

Friendly reminder that we’ll be at the Brooklyn Book Festival on Sunday, at booth #605. Swing by for some of our books on sale ($10 bucks a pop, 3 for $25 if you fancy), tote bags (get one free by finding this ad in the L Magazine and bringing it to the booth!), and a special appearance by Kimberly McCreight, who will be signing 50 copies of Reconstructing Amelia at 1 pm (free to whomever visits!).

Mary will be at the booth in the morning, and I will be there after 1 pm, with some Harper friends helping out throughout the day. Come say hi!

If I had sirens I’d be whirling them right now. Well, classy sirens.
Plum Sykes’ The Debutante Divorcée is on sale for today only at Nook: $1.99! If you’ve read Plum’s blockbuster Bergdorf Blondes, you’ll want to grab this equally fabulous follow-up.

Today’s new releases. Once again there are a lot.

Yeah but The Way Inn, Insurrections of the Mind, and The Men Who United the States are probably the best ones.

With the advent of e-readers, books on the subway are getting harder and harder to spot. It takes dedication to get a sense of what people are reading these days. At The Awl, Ben Dolnick sets out to catalogue a week’s worth of sightings, which included a man reading Cloud Atlas and The Stranger and a teenage girl reading Thornton Wilder’s Our Town. You could also read our own Nick Moran on the question of whether e-readers are really green.

also you could always follow @coverspy!

It’s true! Us, or any of our international spy teams will tell you what folks are reading out there. 

I literally squealed when I coverspy-ed one of my own books over the weekend but played it cool like I just read something on my phone instead.

Oh this is so exciting! Photos from bookstores with our Olive Editions on display are pouring in, and they are looking fiiiiiine. We haven’t done a floor display in a while, so it’s fun seeing them pop up!

If you have them at your store or see them in the wild, tag me here, on instagram, or twitter so I can see!

The New York Post calls Will Wiles’ The Way Inn one of this week’s must-read books. While the story is kind of insane, the punny title probably didn’t hurt either.

Welcome back, Kafka? From Wiles, the author of “Care of Wooden Floors,” a new novel that examines the emptiness of the business world. Hero Neil Double is a professional conference-goer: hired by his clients to attend industry conferences so that they don’t have to. At the bureaucratically nightmarish conference of conference organizers, everything goes awry for Double when he meets a woman he knows he has seen before, finds his tickets and documents have all been voided and gets lost in a hotel that he discovers has the same never-ending, riddled structure as Kafka’s “Castle.”
