The SF Site: The Best in Science Fiction and Fantasy About Goodreads When I was in second grade, I discovered the Hardy Boys series. Ever since, I've loved to read — both for fun and to improve my mind. And I'm always looking for the next great book. One afternoon while I was scanning a friend's bookshelf for ideas, it struck me: when I want to know what books to read, I'd rather turn to a friend than any random person or bestseller list. So I decided to build a website – a place where I could see my friends' bookshelves and learn about what they thought of all their books. Goodreads is that site. Knowledge is power, and power is best shared among readers. Otis Chandler CEO and Co-Founder Book Reviews, Sites, Romance, Fantasy, Fiction | Kirkus Reviews Romance Writers of America

Mostly Fiction Book Reviews A Zen Librarian: Bluestem and Monarch Shelf Talkers Over the summer, I saw an image, I think it was Jon Schu's library blog, that had what I call "shelf talkers." Basically they are little cards that are taped to the bookcase where the books are housed. The cards have a picture of the book, a synopsis of the story and a note about the contest the book is a part of. I created Bluestem and Monarch shelf talkers. I hope others might find them as helpful. Here is an image of the shelf talker that got me started. Here is an example of one of my shelf talkers. Here is a link to the shelf talkers.
