this will be a wonderful online addition to the book world

Reblogged from Valz:

How many times have you asked a librarian for guidance on something to read or where to find a book? There are 16,000 public libraries in America and soon the librarians will come to you via a new online recommendation service called LibraryReads. 


LibraryReads is a joint effort between the ALA (American Library Assn.), AAP (American Assn. of Publishers) and the ABA (American Booksellers Assn.) A number of major publishers have agreed to participate as well.


Each month librarians will present a list of their favorite top 10 books they have read and want to recommend. The service will officially launch in the fall of 2013 at the web address www.libraryreads.org
