1. We have a Christmas window. Soon it will have books in it and I will take the picture at dusk, when you don't see a reflection of me taking the picture!
2. Stacie and I were talking about the new generation of spammy comments on blogs. It used to be that the comments were pretty much nonsense. The next phase were vaguely on the topic at hand. But now the comments coming in often try to refer to a particular book in the post. I received one this morning on our bestseller roundup that included Erin Morgenstern's The Night Circus.
The problem was that this wasn't really a post about The Night Circus, the way the comment indicated. And the comment acted as if The Night Circus had either not quite come out yet or was just releasing. Hey, why not just print the comment?
That said, we also love The Night Circus, as well as its cover. Though one of my booksellers said she prefered the jacket on the advance copy.
