The Pit & . . . the Pit

A continuing series that highlights books recently acquired by publishing houses for future release. Each post features a book we’re looking forward to, and a book we’re . . . not.

No easily identifiable cherries this week, so we’ll focus on two pits instead. Just the bio of the first one’s author gave me a headache:

Founding member of Twitter, founder of iPhoneDevCamp and DollarApp, and developer of the official Obama ‘08 campaign iPhone app, Dominic Sagolla’s 140 Characters: Style Guide for the Short Form, an Elements of Style for the digital age, with a foreword by Twitter Chairman and Co-Founder, Jack Dorsey.


Shannen Doherty’s Bad Ass, sharing the author’s very personal journey from bad girl to a bad ass, with topics ranging from decorating and entertaining to charm and dating.
