Blog Plugs

May 22, 2017

I think I need to focus on some other projects right now so my own postings might slow a bit, but I wanted to take a moment to thank you all for following our blog and for your thoughtful, engaging comments. I’ve learned a lot from them.

First I wanted to give a shout for our BiblioFiles blog, which is just getting better and better.  It’s a must if you’re involved in reader’s advisory.  Our Grant P, still a Readers Team member, is a regular contributor.

As for external blogs if you’re going to follow one, I would recommend either EarlyWord or Shelf Awareness and definitely check in with both if you have time.  EarlyWord is particularly strong on media tie-ins, the nexus of libraryland and publishing, and best of lists.  Its monthly galley chat is a rich source of pre-publication titles that are really gathering momentum. Shelf Awareness is great at covering local titles and bookstore news.  They are both strong on media publicity.

For ARC grabbers, I strongly recommend getting on Edelweiss if you haven’t already. New digital ARC’s are being added all the time, and this is also a convenient vehicle for participating in the LibraryReads campaign.  Right from a title review you can vote and contribute blurbs/reviews.  Marina is faithfully following these now on BiblioFiles as well.
