Blessed be the boss that releases you early from the hallowed halls of the Crystal Palace, after a week of attempting to stem the frustration of book nerds who missed the galley drop by minutes.
And now, my watch has ended.
Here’s what you missed this week (or really, what I missed this week. Cell service in the Javits is abysmal):
- Summer Reading is here! Swan dive into this extensive list of must reads. (NYT)
- What exactly is a beach read? Simply put: books that publicists will send out in tote bags. Ours must have gotten lost in the mail. (Vulture)
- Beach-town booksellers share their recommendations for summer reading, and remind us that no, we still haven’t read Where The Crawdads Sing. (NYT)
- As if we needed more reasons to go to Big Sur. My itinerary is now complete. (LA Times)
