I just discovered a terrific new tool, that just went online this week. I will mention that it is related to a commercial tool, Readers Advisor Online, but I think the blog will prove to be invaluable. It can be reached at www.readersadvisoronline.com/blog . I've also linked to it from my blog.
The Advisory Board for this site includes some prominent people in the Readers' Advisory field, such as Diana Tixier Herald, author of Genreflecting, Cynthia Orr, Collection Manager at Cleveland Public Library, and Nancy Pearl, author of Book Lust.
It has some interesting features, such as a combined bestseller list that may be of interest to librarians, and a list of hot books due out in the next week.
I was also interested in a feature called Librarian's Book Revoogle, created by Rick Roche, RickLibrarian . The new search tool, Librarian's Book Revoogle is a tool for librarians to find reviews written by professionals, other librarians.
Lesa's Book Critiques has already been accepted as a reviewing source by Librarian's Book Revoogle.
If you're a librarian doing Readers' Advisory, check out Readers Advisor Online's blog.
