bbaw: found books. September 17, 2009Posted by Katie in community.
Welcome to the fourth day of Book Blogger Appreciation Week!
Today, we’re supposed to talk about books that we didn’t know about until a blogger called our attention to them.
This is the easiest and the hardest day for me. The easiest because I know exactly what books to choose and to talk about. Hardest because I can’t remember who directed me to the books. So, I’ve just made a kind of picture tribute. Below, you’ll find some the books I didn’t know (and have read and have loved) that I found on a book blog first. [You can ignore the awful graphics. I only have Paint on this computer…that makes things difficult.]
Would I have found these books otherwise? Probably. I am, after all, a librarian. I’d read it months down the line in a review magazine. Or browsing another library’s catalog.
Instead…I got to be the cool teen librarian, pitching the books to the teens before they had even heard of them. Before a lot of them were even out.
