Book Expo Librarian Shout and Share

Last week, Donna Seaman moderated the annual Book Expo tradition of having librarians call out the Fall releases they are most excited about. Booklist was the sponsor this year and over on Booklist Reader, they have posted all of the titles. Click here to see what you should be planning to read and order for your patrons.

Below, I have reposted the intro and the information about the Shouters and Sharers but to see the books themselves you have to click through.

Thanks to everyone who worked hard while at Book Expo to gather up and share their favorite titles. I have been one fo these people at ALA Annual a few times, and I know it is not easy to do while attending the conference. But I also know how much it helps everyone, everywhere, to serve their patrons better. So thanks.
