How terribly rude of me, letting most of the day go by without telling you about our Gold Box deal: celebrate Harper Perennial’s 50th Anniversary with 50 ebooks for $1.99 each!

And you know me, I only celebrate with the best of the best. Grab ‘em before they’re gone!

The cover for Ann’s essay collection worked so well in hardcover we’re keeping it in paperback.
Good.

The literature: Ann Patchett’s STATE OF WONDER

The libation: Most of us won’t get to visit the Amazon in our lifetime on fully-funded pharmaceutical research trips, let alone for vacation. The best we can do for you in the interim is an evening in with Ann Patchett’s lush, sensual novel, which does an almost uncomfortably good job of communicating the humidity, claustrophobia, horror, and vibrant beauty of the Amazonian rain forest.

If you need to take a break (we understand, no judgment), try a different kind of intensity. The Wasp Sting shot is made with equal parts pepper vodka and Tingala, a liqueur made from the tingflower native to the Amazon basin which imparts a particularly invigorating prickling sensation. Knock one back or sip for a slower burn.

No I am not drunk, I am in a state of wonder. Gosh.

Ann Patchett on Bel Canto, her late editor Robert Jones, and what writers really want. Watch the full video.

This morning I had to ask Ann if she was OK being gif-ed. She said yes.

Want to win an ARE of my favorite book on our Winter 2014 list? Swing on over to Goodreads to enter our giveaway!
P.S. Ann Patchett seems to like it too: 

“In The Free, Willy Vlautin gives us a portrait of American life that is so hard and so heartbreaking that it should be unbearable, but it isn’t. The straightforward beauty of Vlautin’s writing, and the tender care he shows his characters, turns a story of struggle into indispensable reading. I couldn’t recommend it more highly.”
