A very short but revealing article here. This falls in line with what we learned at some presentations during #BEA17 last year. https://www.google.com/amp/s/techcrunch.com/2018/01/24/print-book-sales-rose-1-9... #TheLitsyNewsNetwork #LNN

The Swap | Megan Shull

Thought it might be fun to do a book swap at our #PhillyMeetUp 😁Bring a wrapped book that you no longer wish to own and go home with a new book (that you don't need to purchase🤑) Every book will be tagged with a number, you'll pick a number & viola you have a new book 📚no pressure ~ don't need to bring a book if you aren't feeling it... looking forward to meeting everyone, @Jess been having trouble tagging you - apologies if I forgot anyone

Lizpixie Have a great time everyone. I'll be there in spirit❤️❤️ 2y
BethM Love this! 2y

Maximum Ride: Nevermore | James Patterson
post image

Today's author spotlight: James Patterson! In 2016, he topped Forbes's list of highest-paid authors for the third consecutive year in a row, taking in $95 million 😱! His estimated income for the past decade: $700 million. He donates heavily to book-related causes. If you want him to guide you through writing a novel, you can take his class at Masterclass.com. (I talked with him about it at #BEA17 & thanked him☺️!) #AuthorPotpourri #TheMoreYouKnow

tammysue We ❤️ JP!! He's my hubbys favorite author!! 👍🏻👍🏻👍🏻 2y
tpixie Awesome you got to talk with him!! My theory is he has used his advertising background as an idea 💡 man, and by using co-writers , he's able to get more of his stories out AND able to spend more time with his son whom he had later in life! lol that's my theory about why he started using co-writers. Not certain why I felt I had to create a backstory for him!! 2y

Murder Games | James Patterson
post image

#TBRtemptation post 3! Any James Patterson fans here? I know there's a bunch of you 😆👊🏻. This is his latest, due out in bookstores this week. A serial killer is loose in Manhattan. Dubbed The Dealer for leaving a playing card on each victim. Officer Elizabeth Needham teams up with professor Dylan Reinhart to figure out how all of the victims are connected before more folks die. Sounds like another great JP thriller! #blameLitsy #blameMrBook 😎

Bookladylinda I ❤️ JP!!! 2y
MrBook @Bookladylinda Then I know who to tag in future JP posts 😁👏🏻🙌🏻! I met him at #BEA17 this month 😎. 2y
Bookladylinda @MrBook please do! I would totally love that. I would love to meet him one day. 2y

So this is the last. The last item I brought home from #BEA17, I think *sighs*. Took three weeks to show you everything 😆. I may find more, but I think this may be the final one. It's a pouch from the @outofprint Booth 😁👏🏻👏🏻👏🏻🙌🏻!!! And it shall be put to extensive use 😉👍🏻. I can't wait until next year. If anyone will be attending, reach out next year if you want. I had set up a Slack group & an email thread. #BEA18, here Littens come!

Peddler410 I wish it would come back to Chicago. My budget does not allow for a trip to New York next year 😞 2y

On the sinking Titanic, they meet a mysterious girl who shows them how unstable history can be. #blameLitsy #blameMrBook 😎
