Book Release Calendar
Oh my goodness, I have a new obsession: adding titles to the Book Release Calendar. Up until last week, I recorded forthcoming titles in a private Google document. I was not very good about updating it, though. I always remember the release dates for books advertised around the library, in bathrooms, and in the foyer. I have a rule in my school library: if a book is advertised somewhere in the school, it is entered in the library catalog and ready for holds. I welcome holds. I love holds. Holds rock! The books advertised around the school always stick in my head. Like clockwork, you will find me every Tuesday at Anderson’s Bookshop buying new books.
With the new Book Release Calendar, I will never forgot a much-anticipated release. I hope you find it useful. Happy Reading!
(Note: I am still adding to the calendar.)
