2. I just finished reading The Hundred Thousand Kingdoms and OMFG SO GOOD. How can a book be so amazingly epic? I'm trying to refrain from saying too much (YEINE + NAHADOTH FOREVAAAAAAAAAAAR) because I want to have a long fleshed-out review to give the book the love it deserves, but right now I'm gonna show off the cover, which also has a POC face! (So much better than the german cover of fail) Also, I'd sell my soul for the next two books in the trilogy. For all those who haven't put this on their reading list/haven't bought it yet/whatever WHAT ARE YOU DOING WITH YOUR LIFE?! Go to the bookstore and get it now. I say this to right what is so wrongly missing from your reading experience. 8D Very thoughtful of my reading audience, I am.
3. SO MANY AWESOME POSTS BY AWESOME PEOPLE. Today, Book Smugglers has a lovely comprehensive post on Whitewashing Covers and Zetta Elliot has a Guest Post on Huffington Post about the UK Publishing Equalities Charter and it sounds promising and I am crossing my fingers that the publishing industry takes note and considers drawing up a similar charter. 8D Also, it's about a week old but N. K. Jemisin did another very interesting Describe Characters of Colour writeup, which I encourage everyone to check out.
4. Should I brave the snow to get my copies of Michelle West's Sun Sword series signed tomorrow? ... *looks at 10 cm of accumulated snow today and cries*
5. Anyone wanna give me some tips on how to further promote my giveaway contest? I already linked it to various sites such as Goodreads, Book Reader Times, The Black Cell, and Bookworming Through the 21st Century, and spam my twitter about it ever so often, but I was wondering if there are venues out there that I can link to that I'm currently unaware of.
