I work in book publishing.
You're my favorite.

I also liked hanging out in Workman’s offices all day and doing exercises like going around the room and saying what the last book we bought with actual money was and why we bought it.  Lucinella, a Terry Pratchett novel, By Grand Central Station I Sat Down and Wept and Code Name: Verity were some of the books people mentioned. Publishing people!! I love you! 

All publishing conferences should have a “What are you reading?” portion. Book Camp is the best.
