While meeting the authors and having a signed copy of a book is always wonderful, those things aren’t necessary to actually read the book and take away the lessons and enjoyment from it.
So for those of you not heading to HPMKT next week, we want you to know what books and authors are making a splash there so you can be in the loop. And if you will be there, pick up a signed copy for a friend who isn’t going!
Here’s our very first edition of “Book Corner”. And if you’re paying attention to the book signing times, yes, you’ll have to wear running shoes on Sunday morning to get to most of these. Apparently books go well with brunch!
