Friday Whatnot

Sorry about the delay in delivery. I wasn’t lying about my love/hate relationship with WiFi. Here’s some Friday Whatnot for you:

The shelf talkers for the June IndieNext List are ready. If you use ShelfWiz, I’m sure they’ll be ready soon.

John Green was a guest on Reddit’s Ask Me Anything yesterday. If you’re looking for content to share, you’ll be able to find plenty of quotes from the conversation threads. In his sign-off, he wrote: “When you’re deciding what movie to see on June 6th, JUST REMEMBER THAT TOM CRUISE NEVER DID AN AMA. I kid. But seriously though.”

As I visit with authors at BEA, I ask if they have any messages for booksellers and then I share them on Instagram. Brock Clarke’s message is lengthy, but I posted every word. (Because he’s so freaking charming.)

And finally, here’s the Instagram post that had me bolting from one end of the conference center to the other.
