How do librarians know what titles are coming out when? How do we decide which of those titles we'll purchase for the collection? We have several sources, but Publishers Weekly (PW)
is one of my personal favorites. PW
reviews around 9,000 books a year.
For this month's post, I've taken the liberty of going through the February issues of Publishers Weekly (PW)
and sharing the upcoming releases their reviewers are most excited about. Each of these titles received a starred review. We don't have all of these titles in the collection yet -- most are due to hit the shelves in bookstores and libraries this month -- but you can place a hold on your copy now. Or, if you're like me, and you're typically at the 5 holds per person max, you can keep tabs on your picks a couple of ways.
My favorite way to keep track of books I want to read is through ACPL's catalog. Heather wrote an excellent post on how to do this -- click here
for the details. Goodreads
are also options.
Which of these catches your eye? The Last Neanderthal
have made my list!

Becky likes to read … A LOT. When she’s not reading, she likes to pretend that she can garden. Her thumb has no hint of green whatsoever but luckily her plants are forgiving. Her favorite books are The Shannara series by Terry Brooks
