Celebrating the Across the Universe Release!

I blogged earlier today about the release of an amazing book, Across the Universe, which is happening today! When Shanyn and I went to GLIBA in October, we snagged copies of this one, and all of the Penguin folks were super excited about this one--and rightly so! It truly is an awesome sci-fi read, and Penguin has done an awful lot to celebrate--interactive websites, author videos, and more! Check it out!

Check out the trailer:

Explore the Godspeed on the official book site! It's so awesome--you can zoom in and take tours of each level and really get inside the book. I really liked the Feeder level--so much going on, and the way it's all spread out is neat.

Also, today only, from 11:11 AM to 11:11 PM, io9.com will be posting a special 111 pages excerpt of Across the Universe! So if you think you might be interested in this book, go check it out!

this book sounds great but I can't seem to find it at the library to read, and don't particularly like buying books do you know where I can find it?

I am new to reading your blog and I just stumbled upon it. But it was great reading your blog. This post was fantastic!

Katie: Enjoy! I saw a finished copy for the first time today at the store, and it is gorgeous!

Belly: Well, it just came out today, so it probably isn't in libraries yet. Wait a week or so, and if your library still doesn't have, try asking for it through inter-library loan. Or, try paperbackswap.com or other book-swap sites.

AR: Thanks for stopping by!
