It’s the new year and it may be that reading is on your New Years Resolution list. Well, we are here to help.
A great time to get to know Goodreads is NOW. You can make yourself a reading goal for the year and it will keep track of the books you have read when you update your goodreads reading log. Check out your yearly reading goal on goodreads HERE.
Goodreads is such a great way to keep track of the books you have read! I know, the handy and ever with you notebook is helpful…but let me stress again how great and helpful Goodreads is! We use it constantly at the library and it’s probably the number one reason you think we are so knowledgeable on books…because we look on goodreads.
Well, except for Alicia. She really IS that knowledgeable about books! (and Denise is saying that, just so you know. Alicia would never pridefully say that but the truth is, Alicia knows her books! )
December is the slowest month EVER in book publishing. I have no idea why. My guess is that no one wants to go around promoting their book at the holidays. I think that’s why so many books come out in October…they promote them and then go home to enjoy Thanksgiving and Christmas and New Years with their families.
But then comes January. And man do we have a lot of new books for you!
Here at the library, we also began the very tedious makes a huge mess to make a big impact rearranging of the adult library books. Now they are ALL alphabetical (exception being Westerns and Science Fiction, where you can find them where they always have been located.).
When we are done, it would be a great time to stop in and browse the shelves. You’ll find all the authors all together and maybe you’ll discover a brand new favorite. How fun that would be!
But at the moment it’s just a mess and we are in need of coffee, motrin and a nap.
However, our new cart is still our new cart and you can find all these books in the new cart or on the top shelves of our children and Young Adult sections so stop in and read up!
(Click any book and you will be taken to our online catalog system where you can reserve these.)
What are you excited to read???
