WINNERS ANNOUNCED: The Oscar game, #Free books!!

Hard to believe the Oscars are celebrating their 85th year – amazing! One thing I’ve always wondered is why does this event have two names? Definitely an indicator that this is something BIG, something special. Trusty ole’ Wikipedia gave me some interesting answers to the origination of the event – did you know: The Academy Awards, informally known as The Oscars, are a set of awards given annually for excellence of cinematic achievements.

PW’s Barbara Vey & team list their Favorite Books of 2012

After reviewing many bestseller lists for 2012, we highlighted and compiled what we thought would have been our bests . . . so I guess we’re choosing, the best of their bests? All of this posturing [...]
