Get Your Fall Books Calendar!

It’s my personal indicator that the Fall is upon us; USA Today’s Fall Books Calendar has just been posted, listing 150 titles.

It feels like they created this one just for me, since my personal pick of the Fall, Dewey: The Small-Town Library Cat Who Touched the World is the opening image. But, I’m not the only one who’s been smitten by this kitten; USA Today featured the book back in June. And who could resist that face?

Have fun browsing the listings; for both collection development and readers advisory staff, it’s interactive format, including excerpts, covers and annotations, makes it a convenient way to brush up on what may be the big titles of the fall (they included the then little-known Story of Edgar Sawtelle in their summer list).

In addition, USA Today editors have picked ten titles consider “talkers;” books you want to talk about.

We’re at work putting together a mashup of all the fall picks, similar to the one we did for the summer titles. This time, since we often hear how frustrating it can be to hunt down various formats for a title, we’re including ISBN’s for audio and large type editions.
