Book Group Buzzing with Booklist

If you missed Booklist's Book Group Buzz webinar (for shame!), we've got the scoop for you until the webinar is archived.

You can download the full title list from all publishers here. (Warning! The excel file downloads immediately.)

All of our buzzed books are shown above, but here are a few snippets from Talia's buzz to tempt you to tune in next time:

"What do
Edith Wharton, Daphne du Maurier, Jane Austen, "Upstairs, Downstairs," and
People magazine have in common? THE AMERICAN HEIRESS has been compared to all
of them." On THE AMERICAN HEIRESS

"A dead mother. An abusive father. A plot to escape. A sister has been left behind!" On THE SISTERS

"I have to take a second to thank Julia for writing some steamy moments between Reverend Claire and Chief of Police Russ. What could be better?" On ONE WAS A SOLDIER

"If you
have a puppy, had a puppy, or have puppy-owning friends, you must start a
puppy book club just to read this book." On THE PUPPY DIARIES

"Are we
looking at those kittens? Hello? Kittens anyone?!" On BEST FRIENDS, OCCASIONAL ENEMIES

Check out our dedicated book club website, Reading Group Gold, for more recommendations.

[UPDATE] Our friends over at Booklist have posted all of the slides from the presentation for you here: http://www.BooklistOnline.com/media/webinars/materials/Book_Group_Buzzing.pdf. And they have posted the full audio-visual presentation, which you can watch here.

Booklist Webinar: High-Demand Mysteries in Libraries

Booklist Webinar: High-Demand Mysteries in Libraries

If you missed Booklist's "Beyond Bestsellers: High-Demand Mysteries in Libraries" webinar, then you missed some very enthusiastic mystery recommendations from our very own, Talia, but don't fret! The webmasters over on the Booklist site just posted an archived recording of the entire presentation (find it here).

Readers want more than just bestsellers, says Readers' Advisory expert and Booklist columnist Joyce Saricks, and librarians have an obligation to alert their patrons to wonderful authors who don't necessarily top the sales charts. Saricks will share her discoveries about what really circulates and how librarians can help spread the news. Representatives from four publishers—Macmillan, Severn House, AudioGO, and Felony & Mayhem—will preview the best titles from their forthcoming lists. Booklist Online Senior Editor Keir Graff moderates.
