EarlyWord – the Bookstore libraries’ best friend

November 8, 2011

Hey Sno-Isle Bookstore libraries (and all others):  if you haven’t linked to EarlyWord, you should.   The website publishes news for libraries about the publishing world with an emphasis on the Next Big Thing (well, Things).  EarlyWord scans the publishing world – and the media world – to help us stay on top of the titles our customers will be asking about.  If you’re stumped for display ideas, this website is a great resource.

Here’s an example:  a recent post discusses the renewed interest in Sherlock Holmes, which will heighten with the release of the second Robert Downey film (scheduled for theaters in mid-December).  In addition to titles by Sir Arthur Conan Doyle, you can supplement a display with the list of Sherlock Holmes wannabe titles, like House of Silk, by Anthony Horowitz.
