Paperback Writer...

We all have them: those well-loved and well-worn paperbacks that we re-read every year, overlooking a torn page here and a broken spine there, dog-ears in every size, the cover perhaps a bit faded but no less loved. It's hard to imagine a time without this staple of the summer reading list (and TBR piles everywhere), but it was on this day in 1935, just 77 years ago, that paperbacks were first introduced!

In celebration of the beloved paperback, we're highlighting our newest paperback editions here on the blog today! For more information, check out our main website or, better yet, head out to your local bookstore to find them on the shelf! 

Leave a comment below with your email address for your chance to win these great books! Tell us what paperbacks you love to re-read!
