Big Books for the Week, Month, Season

Welcome to Check Your Shelf. Before we jump in, I have to share this delightful video of the Chicago Cubs’ off-the-field talents. I hope it makes you giggle as much as it did for me!

Level Up (Library Reads)

Do you take part in Library Reads, the monthly list of best books selected by librarians only? We’ve made it easy for you to find eligible diverse titles to nominate. Kelly Jensen created a database of upcoming diverse books that anyone can edit, and Nora Rawlins of Early Word is doing the same, as well as including information about series, vendors, and publisher buzz.

Catch you on the flipside, everyone.
