The Newsstand {7}

The News Stand is a weekly feature. Here we dish on tidbits, news, and important things bookies should know. So scroll down to hear what you can glean from this week.

  • Bloomsbury USA's decision to feature a white girl on the cover of Jaclyn Dolamore's debut novel Magic Under Glass, which stars a dark-skinned heroine, has sparked controversy across the internet. Just five months after the same publisher was forced to back down over a similar issue. Check out the controversy.

  • Check out the new iPad. It has an iBooks app. Will you be getting one?
  • The last book in the Fablehaven series is on Pre-order from Amazon!! I can't wait for March!
What news do YOU have for us?
