Sampling award finalists

Posted by Laura Haskins - Library Director on March 29, 2011

We try to link, here in our list of new books, to excerpts and sample chapters you can read to decide whether or not you might want to read our new titles.

But what about books we don’t yet have, or might not be planning to get? Book publishing industry blog Galleycat offers what they call “literary mixtapes” of links to free samples of nominees for literary prizes. For example, the posting for the New York Public Library 2011 Young Lions Fiction Award “mixtape” also contains links to sample sets from many more of this year’s award lists.

Sample something you’re dying to read? Stop by the library and check. If we don’t already have it or have it on order, we’re happy to take it as a suggestion for our shopping list. We’re always interested in hearing what you want to read next.
