Back in January, I blogged about The Millions' list of most anticipated books for 2009. They've done another one, for the second half of 2009.
These lists are really well done, with just enough information about the author, the title, and why it's so anticipated. They don't waste too much time on obvious best-sellers, but instead choose things that you might not be aware of, even closer to their release.
Their links go to Amazon, but keep a window open to our catalog to see if we've ordered them yet. If you find it, and no copies have a status of "check shelf," you can use the "request" button to place your hold.
