In Other News...
Well, I've had my first two days at a new internship this week! I left my job as an accountant in hopes of finding a career that I would find more satisfying, and somehow managed to find this amazing job that combines my interest in marketing and relationship-building with reading! I am working for Open Books, an amazing literacy organization in Chicago. Thus, I get to spend part of each week rubbing shoulders with the literati of the city, meeting authors for coffee, chatting with publishers over lunch... I'm in heaven. And the organization itself does such amazing work, ensuring that lower-income students still have the opportunity to discover reading and writing. For anyone in the Chicago area, I highly encourage you to attend the used bookstore opening at the end of November- it promises to be grand :-)
Other news that is completely unrelated but thrills me is that Terry Pratchett's new book comes out soon!! I got the Author Tracker news from Harper Collins, and I am so excited. I just caught up with Pratchett recently, since I just finished Making Money a few months ago. But this book goes back to Unseen University and the beloved academics. Check out a preview of the book, Unseen Academicals, here.
Stay tuned Thursday for the re-launch of Rosie's Riveters! I haven't forgotten about it, I promise.
