LibraryReads - Books Librarians Love
Can't decide what to read next? Tired of reading traditional bestsellers? Want to surprise your book group with a new title? Then visit LibraryReads. Each month this awesome website lists the top ten new books librarians around the country are recommending to their readers. It’s not a contest or a sales gimmick, simply a way for people who love books to share their collective favorites.
There are, of course, a few caveats. LibraryReads’ recommendations are based on publishers’ advance copies, and hardcover editions may not yet be available. Or the hardcover edition may have been received, but is waiting to be cataloged, which takes a little time. So, if you see a book on LibraryReads that’s not in the Evergreen catalog, talk to a reference librarian, who will be happy to find out whether it’s been ordered, and, if it has, to get it to you as soon as possible.
Stop by the Readers' Advisory bookshelf the next time you're in Teen & Adult Services. We've put together a binder containing a printed copy of the current LibraryReads list as well as all previous lists. Just look for the orange and blue logo.
