New Books Overload

[I am still getting into the groove of what I will be doing for this post, but for now this is what I’ve come up with under short time constraints.  Very similar to the Readers’ Advisor Online blog, less like EarlyWord.  Hopefully helpful regardless.]

In the News

[There are many, many sites that have culled the news for literary and bookish news, and I will likely just link to their collections.  This week I’ll start with Citizen Reader’s website.  She was previously one of the authors behind RA Online.  How can I not??]

Best Books of 2017 (so far) Lists

This is just a small sampling of the Best of (so far) lists that are out there.  It’s fun to take a quick look through them.

Just for Fun

[Thanks for reading.  As I have previously mentioned, I hope to hone the information placed here so that it will be most useful to librarians.  Particularly small libraries whose staffs are very small and resources are quite limited.]
