This is it! We’ve officially begun!  Here is, without a doubt, the very first Librarian Preview of the Fall 2014 season.  I’m so thrilled to be presenting it in its full unaltered glory.  Chronicle Books, that plucky little Californian publisher, has really made a name for itself in the past few years.  And now, with [...]

Foof!  It’s been a while!  At least it feels like it has.  For whatever reason I haven’t posted a good Simon & Schuster Preview since . . . um . . . since their Spring 2011 list was premiered.  Whoopsie!  Let’s make up for lost time then. First off, Simon & Schuster does their librarian [...]

There’s a special thrill that fills me when I get to do a librarian preview of a publisher I’ve never done before.  It does me good.  Though I like what the big guys produce, it’s the little guys that truly have my heart.  Case in point, NorthSouth Books.  If they’re a bit unfamiliar to you, [...]
