For several months on GalleyChat, we’ve been hearing about a book with a memorable title, No Good Duke Goes Unpunished by Sarah MacLean (HarperCollins/Avon; Brilliance Audio), so it’s no surprise to learn that it’s the #1 LibraryReads pick for December.
Published as a mass market paperback, this may put to rest one of the old fables about libraries; that they don’t buy paperbacks.
It’s a good week for Maclean; her previous title in the Rule of Scoundrels series, One Good Earl Deserves A Lover, (HarperCollins/Avon) was selected by Kirkus as one of the 100 best fiction titles of the year.
We hope you’re already familiar with LibraryReads, the nationwide “library staff picks” program that identifies ten favorite titles each month. Here’s how you can be part of it:
1) Nominate your favorite forthcoming books – info. on how, here
2) Promote the LibraryReads picks in your library, through your web site and newsletters by using the downloadable LibraryReads Marketing Materials
3) Read the LibraryReads picks and recommend the ones you like (many of the December titles are still available as e-galleys through Edelweiss and NetGalley)
