13 for ’13: The most anticipated books (of the first half) of 2013 | Afterword | Arts | National Post | books in the news | Scoop.it
Forget about 2012. That’s ancient history, the distant past. Finished. No one reads books that were published in 2012 anymore. 2013 — that’s where it’s at. All the new books are 2013. That’s what the cool kids are reading.
Carol Wichman's insight:

The new nawaz book should be as fun a read as the first. Looking forward to it.
