Unless you hate having everything you ever wanted to read months ahead of publication at your fingertips… Get yourself Whitelisted on Edelweiss for Macmillan E-Galleys!
1. Register for Edelweiss with your library-issued e-mail address.
2. Send Talia a note that includes the e-mail address you registered with, your full name, and your current library (subject: Edelweiss).
Please note: Whitelisting is only available to adult and teen librarians currently employed in the U.S. Macmillan e-galleys on Edelweiss are NOT formatted for the Kindle and we apologize for any inconvenience that may cause.
For those of you already Whitelisted we have a few recommendations listed below. And for those of you on the fence maybe one of these upcoming titles will entice you into signing up!
If you read something you love, then make sure to nominate it for LibraryReads! LibraryReads is a new program which harnesses the value of “library staff picks” into a single nation-wide discovery tool, a monthly list of ten newly released must- reads. Any public library staff member can nominate books. For more information about how to participate in LibraryReads, read our FAQ.
Get started with our recommendations!
