Books Expo America free Fall Book Preview (K/N/iBook/S/Kobo)

The BEA convention is this week, starting tomorrow Tuesday the 5th, and I was sent a link to get the preview ebook. They also are making the book available to the public, with previews of 33 books coming out later this year. Every bookseller so far is free, except Nook for .01c.

Every year in late May or early June, the book industry gathers at the Book Expo America (BEA) convention. Originally focused on taking orders from bookstore owners, the annual event has turned into a launchpad for fall books, with live readings and autographing sessions for well-known authors and "Buzz Panels" where editors pitch would-be breakout titles. For many trade professionals, though, the best part of the convention has been the opportunity to collect stacks of galleys--special pre-publication editions of forthcoming books.Now, for the first time ever, passionate readers everywhere can share in a taste of the exciting abundance of new work being showcased for the fall publishing season. This volume collects lengthy excerpts for dozens of "Buzz Books"--new titles that people should be talking about in the months ahead--from the established bestsellers who drive store traffic to the brand-new voices that will enliven the fall literary scene and the experienced authors whose audiences are expanding.With digital reading now a staple in many readers' lives, we are excited to harness the medium to share samples from some of the season's showcase books and authors, along with a broad selection of highly-touted debuts and a great selection of prominent new books in the fast-growing field of young adult literature. Some of these books you may read about in media coverage of BEA or as the authors tour bookstores nationwide. Others are "discovery" books and authors you can find and enjoy before the rest of the world hears about them. Junot Díaz's This is How You Lose Her, Barbara Kingsolver's Flight Behavior, J.R. Moehringer's Sutton and Neil Young's Waging Heavy Peace will all be featured prominently before big audience at the convention, but we also have more debuts, great YA, and samples from established bestsellers than fits on any single stage. Titles are presented in rough order of planned publication, running from early August through January 2013, and additional lists organize the excerpts by debuts and breakouts, literary titles, nonfiction and YA (as well as by author, and by publisher). While we present samples from 33 fall titles, an extensive overview of the fall publishing seasons that follows this introduction curates many dozens more notable fall books you will find covered and promoted in the months ahead.
