Reading librarians vetting favorites

This just in: A new discovery tool has been launched by librarians, for librarians, and anyone else out there who likes to read, especially book groups.library_reads_logo_website

LibraryReads is a monthly list of the top ten freshly published librarian favorites. There’s a sample list here but look for the official list to bow in the fall.

This is a grassroots effort to promote the books that librarians feel deserve attention from readers and book group members. And it’s open to all library staff! Submit your nominations for a top ten pick and see if it makes the list. Sign up to contribute here and SHARE the reading suggestions with all those patrons, friends, and family members who are always asking, “But what are YOU reading?”

Full disclosure: My nomination of Clockwork Fairy Tales: A Collection of Steampunk Fables made the sample list.
