Web Crush of the Week: Earlyword
Posted by: Karen Kleckner Keefe

EarlyWordWe’ve said it before, and we’ll say it again, we LOVE Early Word! EarlyWord’s goal is to help Collection Development and Readers Advisory librarians stay ahead of public demand and identify hidden gems. Edited by Nora Rawlinson, this site is a must-read for anyone who wants high-demand titles on their shelves and something smart to say about them.

Chock full media buzz, movie deals, and sales figures, the site also offers comprehensive lists of best-seller lists, pre-pub announcements, publisher catalogs, and book awards. As close to a collection development crystal ball as there is.
