RA for your Friday

We did it. We made it past winter’s midpoint and are now careening toward incrementally lighter and less frigid days. At the very least, the chocolate will be on sale very soon. Let’s bring on some lists!

We’ve got February picks from Amazon, Barnes & Noble, Bustle, Entertainment Weekly, Time, and The Millions.

For all you genre fans, we’ve got romance from SBTB and Goodreads, sci-fi and fantasy from Gizmodo and Lit Hub, and crime reads from, of course, CrimeReads.

Resource alert! The RA for All blog has resources for graphic novel readers:

“I have had this post in the queue and with the banning of MAUS and the long-standing [and WRONG] dismissal of Graphic Novels as “lesser” than text only books, I am moving this up to today. This post is here to highlight multiple Graphic Novel resources for your library to use right now for collections development, displays, and suggestions. With MAUS garnering attention, interest in graphic novels in general will be high…”

And if you haven’t already reviewed your collection development policy and book challenge procedures, please let this be the timely reminder that encourages you to do so. NCLS has nine copies of the 9th Edition of ALA’s Intellectual Freedom Manual in our system, and the 10th Edition has just been added, so please take advantage of these resources if you’re looking to take a deeper dive into what intellectual freedom is and how central it is to what libraries do.

And if you haven’t already signed up for our inaugural Friday Reads session on March 4, you only have 28 more days! February is short! Don’t miss yer window!

Finally, #FridayReads: I enjoy a winter storm as much as the next person who enjoys a winter storm, but sometimes I just want to think about going outside without layers. Ah, spring. Ah, rhubarb pie. Is it any wonder I went straight for a farmers market-themed cozy this week? Happy reading!
