Web Crush of the Week: ForeWord Reviews

 As any good collection development librarian knows, professional reviews are a must to keep your collection fresh, current, and well-rounded.  It also is your backup if a title is challenged on any level.  It can be difficult however to learn more about independently published works.

ForeWord Reviews a is a print trade journal of book reviews from independent and university presses. (bonus for librarians – free subscriptions for us!)  Their website offers many of the same reviews.  They cover Childrens, YA, and Adult, Fiction and Nonfiction, Graphic Novels, and a number of genres and categories.
