Weekly Update

Greetings from our homes to yours. I have been making notes for this newsletter all week, of things I am reading, seeing and watching. We appreciate that you are reading this --- and also that you are reading so many books. I have gotten notes about how book groups are meeting via Zoom and how people are buying from indies, and borrowing e-books from libraries. I am getting ---- and trying to answer as many as I can --- notes from readers.

On Sale This Week

In this newsletter, you will find books releasing the weeks of March 30th and April 6th 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 Carol Fitzgerald's two latest "Bookreporter Talks To" interviews: Kate Elizabeth Russell, whose debut novel, MY DARK VANESSA, is a #1 Indie Next pick and a LibraryReads Top Pick for March; and Therese Anne Fowler, whose new novel, A GOOD NEIGHBORHOOD, is March's Barnes & Noble Book Club selection and a Bookreporter.com Bets On pick. Scroll further down the newsletter for links to the videos and podcasts of these interviews.

Also, please click on the covers above for our reviews of three books that we featured in last Friday's Weekly Update newsletter: THE GLASS HOTEL, Emily St. John Mandel's highly anticipated new novel (following her award-winning 2014 bestseller, STATION ELEVEN), which revolves around two seemingly disparate events: a massive Ponzi scheme collapse and the mysterious disappearance of a woman from a ship at sea; Louise Erdrich's latest New York Times bestseller, THE NIGHT WATCHMAN, which is based on the extraordinary life of her grandfather, who worked as a night watchman and carried the fight against Native dispossession from rural North Dakota all the way to Washington, D.C.; and THE LAST ODYSSEY, the 15th installment in James RollinsSigma Force series --- to save the world and our future, Sigma Force must embark on a dangerous odyssey into an ancient past whose horrors are all too present.

It is with a heavy heart that I announce this will be my last newsletter. I’ve been with The Book Report Network for the past seven years and serving you serious (and not so serious!) pop culture and book content for the past six.
