New books every week

If you are a loyal visitor to Read.Watch.Listen. you know that on every Tuesday, Faythe posts the new books, movies, CDs, and video games that are released that day. That feature, Join the Queue, shows you brand new stuff that we've ordered, but may or may not be ready to go home with you. That's why it's a good idea to join the queue--so when it is ready, you'll be first in line.

On Thursdays, I post all of the books we've actually received that week and are ready to be checked out by all of you. You can scroll through the book covers and click on one that looks interesting to learn more and have it sent to your local library. All you have to do is look for the slide show that looks like the one on the left...but (here's the tricky part) it's actually located in the right-hand column of the website, just below the poll.

Among the new books this week:
Royal Blood by Ellen Schreiber
The Reformed Vampire Support Group by Catherine Jinks
Strange Angels by Lili St. Crow
Swoon by Nina Malkin
Boys that Bite by Mari Mancusi
Zombie-Loan, volume 4 by Peach-Pit

Oh and if it seems like there are a lot of books about vampires, ghosts, and zombies, that's because there are. But there's also other stuff: light summer reads like Lovestruck Summer,Summer Girls and Sleepaway Girls; books about princesses like Once a Princess and The Reluctant Heiress; and the weird-but-intriguing Jack's Tumor. And more! And it's updated every Thursday, so if you don't see something you want this week be sure to check back next week.
