Check Your Shelf

Remembering Ruth Bader Ginsburg

Welcome to Check Your Shelf. I can’t imagine a worse way to start a weekend than to learn that Ruth Bader Ginsburg had passed away. I still feel gutted. And angry. And terrified. And more determined than ever to vote and help other people vote. I hope that whatever your feelings are right now, they spur you to some eleventh hour action.

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. Make a voting plan. Tell them Ruth sent you.
