So Many Books, Just One Galley Guide

So many books, so little time.

That’s the problem with cruising the show floor at the American Library Association conference, which is why Library Journal has a galley guide especially for you. The guide has been my sole focus this week, as I’ve wrapped up all my December 2013 coverage.

So you can do two things. First, register now for the 2013 Galley & Signing Guide, available shortly. Even if you aren’t attending the conference, I hope that you would find it interesting to see what’s forthcoming from a range of publishers. Second, check out my sneak preview of titles that might not be on your radar—titles I mostly discovered while working on the guide—but that you’ll definitely want to consider.
