I'm probably a bit behind the times, but it looks as though part of the new Web Services Upgrade at the Nashville Public Library was to give online access to BookPage. I've been a BookPage junkie for years.
This new online version is the equivalent of going from smoking pot to mainlining heroin. EVERY BOOK MENTIONED in the reviews, best-seller lists and awards coverage has a direct link to the library's catalog page. You can read the review and request the book. All in one place.
Like Amazon, but for free.
Buzz Girl is the New York-based correspondant for Book Page. Her blog chats up "future best-sellers." I'm officially cheating and adding her to the local blogroll for my site. I know she isn't local, but since BookPage is, I'm staking a claim.
