October Picks and Horror Resources

Welcome to Check Your Shelf. I am in full spooky mode right now, although it’s just not the same without putting up the usual horror displays at the library.

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 (and remember to vote!).
