NPR’s 2017 Book Concierge comes out today! Here’s the link!
The Book Concierge is a web-based app that features more than 300 titles NPR staff and critics loved throughout year. This list has been published annually since 2008. It includes filters like “staff picks” and “book club ideas” and “eye-opening reads” and dozens more that can be combined to help listeners find their next great read.
Independent bookstore patrons tend to be NPR listeners, so it’s not a bad idea to familiarize yourself with the list (even though you’ve probably read everything on it).
In fact, if you provide book coverage for your local NPR station, there’s a good chance your reviews were submitted to the Book Concierge project; if any match the books on the list this year, a link to your coverage will be included.
