    Send a letter!

    Thursday, July 2nd, 2009

    Many readers have been inspired to send their own letters after reading Guernsey. Written correspondence is, after all, the backbone of the novel.

    It is in this spirit that we bring you the Send a Letter feature on Why not use it to send a reminder to your book club? A book recommendation to your best friend? A note to your sister?

    The possibilities are endless! And it’s definitely what Juliet would do.

    Who would you cast?

    Thursday, June 25th, 2009

    We all love to cast the movie in our mind as we read, so now we’re asking you: if you were casting the film version of GLAPPPS, who would you love to see on the big screen?

    Guernsey is #1!

    Thursday, June 4th, 2009

    We couldn’t be¬†happier to report that The Guernsey Literary and Potato Peel Pie Society¬†has occupied the #1 spot on the New York Times bestseller list (trade paperback fiction) for¬†three weeks and counting!

    This is in no small part due to the enthusiasm and passion of readers like you, who have not only read and loved Guernsey, but shared it with your friends, colleagues, sisters, parents, teachers, students, strangers on the street…

    Our congratulations go out not only to Annie Barrows and the late Mary Ann Shaffer, but to all of you, who have made this wonderful book such a success. The members of the GLAPPPS would be proud.
