3. Request the book from your local library!
If your library doesn’t already have My Second Impression of You on order, please request it! I used to think if I searched the library catalogue for a book and they didn’t have it, I was out of luck, but that’s not the case at all. Libraries want to carry the books you want to read, and many of them have a “Suggest a Purchase” option on their website, often on the Contact Us page. If they don’t have an online option, you can always ask the next time you’re in the library. Here’s all the information you’ll need:9781547604128
Every week leading up to the release of My Second Impression of You, I’ve been revealing one of the fantastic blurbs I received for the book–and giving away a book by that author! The final giveaway starts today and runs through Thursday, Sept. 15. You can enter on both Instagram and Twitter. One winner will be chosen from both, so good luck!
In today’s newsletter, I also shared the back cover of the book, which includes all of the blurbs, as well as a fantastic review from the School Library Journal, an interview, and information about the ParnassusNext Book Club. I try not to make my blog posts an exact copy of the newsletter, so be sure to sign up if you don’t want to miss anything: https://eepurl.com/hh3lwD.
Thank you so much for your support! And if you’re able to attend one of my events, I can’t wait to see you!
