Weekly Update

This is your last summer weekend...so grab a book and head outside. Fall rolls in on Monday, so this is your last chance!

Last Saturday, I went to yoga class and from there headed to the hair salon for a haircut. There I realized that I had left my backpack with my wallet at the yoga studio, which would not be open until Sunday morning. So there went my plans for doing a huge list of errands as I did not have my driver’s license, credit cards or cash, and my gas tank light had blinked on for a refill (I am known to wait for the light to go on before getting gas, which drives my husband crazy). So what did I do? I grabbed books and read to prep for upcoming interviews for both our in-house videos/podcasts and an upcoming festival and events. There were lots of options on my bookshelf!

On Sale This Week

In this newsletter, you will find books releasing the weeks of September 16th and September 23rd that we think will be of interest to Bookreporter.com readers, along with Bonus News, where we call out a contest, feature or review that we want to let you know about so you have it on your radar.

This week, we are calling attention to our "What's Your Book Group Reading This Month?" contest on ReadingGroupGuides.com, where three book groups will win 12 paperback copies of HEARTLAND: A Memoir of Working Hard and Being Broke in the Richest Country on Earth by Sarah Smarsh (the audiobook is a Bookreporter.com Bets On pick). The deadline for your entries is Wednesday, October 9th at noon ET.

Also, please click on the covers above for our reviews of three books that we featured in last Friday's Weekly Update newsletter: THE TESTAMENTS, the riveting sequel to Margaret Atwood's 1985 dystopian classic, THE HANDMAID'S TALE; THE INSTITUTE by Stephen King, a gut-wrenchingly dramatic story of good vs. evil in a world where the good guys don’t always win; and Emma Donoghue’s latest novel, AKIN, in which a retired professor's life is thrown into chaos when he takes his great-nephew to the French Riviera in hopes of uncovering his own mother's wartime secrets.
