The Quirk Books team has attended BookExpo and BookCon for many years now, so when ReedPop announced the retiring of BookExpo and BookCon earlier this month, it'll come as no surprise we were sad to see it go. But, if 2020 has taught us anything it's that people are resilient and adaptable, and there will continue to be new and exciting opportunities to serve the book-loving community. We can't wait to see what Reed Exhibitions thinks up in the coming years.
For now, as a final farewell to America's largest book publishing trade show, the Quirk team would like to share a handful of their favorite memories of BookExpo and BookCon.

If you're like us, you're using Zoom a lot these days—for work meetings, happy hours, and virtual hangs with friends and family. Video chats help us feel more connected when we're apart. (And we really miss our coworkers!) Besides seeing friendly faces, the best part about video chatting is changing the background. That got us thinking: what if we made Quirk-themed Zoom backgrounds featuring some of our titles? So we did. Go ahead and give your Zoom call a literary spin!
To save the backgrounds, click the image to be taken to the file, and then right click and save. (Psst, when you use these on Zoom, the image will appear backwards for you because Zoom shows you your mirrored image. To everyone else, the image will appear normal!)

There are few things that are more dreaded than doing taxes—and with good reason! Taxes have a reputation for being complicated, time-consuming, and of course, difficult to get right. There’s always a fear that something is missing, that you won’t get the return you should, or (far worse) that you will make the kind of mistake that has the government releasing the hounds.
However, this year offers a surprise reprieve from springtime tax day, as the COVID-19 pandemic has prompted the IRS to announce that the tax deadline has been pushed. This is a welcome measure to help people affected by the global pandemic, but it’s also left people wondering just what to do with what would have been Tax Day. Thankfully, we’ve got some isolation-friendly (and bookworm-friendly) ideas for you, so you can celebrate having another couple of months to enjoy before knuckling down to that dreaded task.
