#3. Any Mitch Albom fans here? Yesterday, HarperCollins Canada revealed the cover for Mitch’s upcoming book, The First Phone Call from Heaven on their Facebook page. Personally, I can’t wait to read this one. What do you guys think? Will you be picking this one up in November? See the cover here.
#4. We can’t stop raving about this week’s #50BookPledge Pick After Her, the new novel by Joyce Maynard.
