PLA Book Buzz

PLA 2014 IndianapolisThanks to the brave souls who, as I requested in my column,  stopped by the Booklist booth at PLA in Indianapolis and shared what they were reading, listening to, and viewing. As you can see, there’s an eclectic mix of adult fiction to choose from, as well as a taste of nonfiction for adults, and some fiction and nonfiction for youth as well. (To those of you who were hoping to see this sooner, thanks for your patience!)
