Talks of Polar Vortex and winter being extra cruel this year had easily become the trending topic EVERYWHERE. Instagram’s most popular post so far is a screenshot of the weather wherever city Instagrammers are from. Here in Winnipeg, it’s not that easy for us to be deterred by cold weather. It’s life. But let me tell you, it. WAS. COLD.
Simon & Schuster, aka, the only publisher who knows I exist, has a contest for us to stave off the cold a little bit.
“Happy New Year!
Every time January rolls around, we book industry people start thinking about New Year, New You promotions. We of course have A TON of healthy living, diet and spirituality books to get your new year started on the right foot. But, this has been done A MILLION times and it’s not fun, creative or new.
So this year at S&S Canada we decided to do something a little different in January. Allow me to present to you the Winter Survival Package. We all know that Canadian winters can be known to drag on and on, so what better than a burst of bookish fun at mid- January when we’re all suffering from the winter blahs.
Our kit will contain all the fun and fantastic books pictured below, as well as oodles of goodies to keep you toasty and warm during the frigid winter months.”
