Welcome, New Readers!

If you just found us via our ad on Unshelved, welcome. As a long-time reader of Unshelved myself, I admire your taste.

Now that you’re here, please take the time to check out what EarlyWord has to offer:

  • Links to download publisher catalogs — browse the winter/spring ’09 catalogs to see what publishers will be promoting and to uncover books that meet your special community needs. You can download directly, from the links on the right, or go to a single list.
  • Publisher Contacts — links to publisher services created specifically for librarians and to library marketing staff.
  • Bestseller List — Highlighted on the right, links to current national and speciality lists.
  • Movies to Books — upcoming and current movies with tie-in title information, plus links to trailers at the right (they’re not even a guilty pleasure; it’s part of your job to stay on top of movies that bring new attention to books).
  • The “Give ’em What They Want” blog, highlighting books on the rise (the AP wrote about Joe Biden’s book today, but there’s another book that actually got more of a bounce because of Bidne’s nomination), word-of-mouth bestsellers and review quotes you can use in readers advisory work.
  • Seasonal overviews. To the right, you’ll see the Books of Summer Picks. The fall list have just begun to appear; we’ll soon begin putting together our Fall Reads Mashup.

If you like what you see, you can sign up for our RSS feed (see the button to the right).
