The Winter 2006/2007 Book Sense Children's Picks list can now be previewed online. Independent bookstores with Book Sense will begin receiving the Children's Picks fliers, which are being mailed directly from the printer, within the next week. Additional copies may be requested via e-mail to email@example.com.
The winter list is the result of the strong participation of independent booksellers nationwide, and the Book Sense team extends many thanks to all who nominated titles.
Looking ahead, the deadline for the February Picks list is Friday, December 1, and the deadline for the Valentine's Day List is Friday, December 8.
Nominations may be sent in an e-mail, including just a few sentences about the title, to Book Sense Picks Editor-in-Chief Dan Cullen at firstname.lastname@example.org or through a convenient Web form. Nominations sent via e-mail should include the word "Picks" in the subject line.
As ABA works to compile a showcase of Book Sense-related images, booksellers are encouraged to send in photos of their displays featuring selections from this Picks list, especially during the holiday season. These images are a great addition to the presentations Book Sense makes to publishers about the program. Photos may be in print or digital format. Digital photos, approximately 3" x 5" and 300 dpi, saved as JPEG or TIFF files, should be e-mailed to Christine Babcock at email@example.com. Multiple pictures may be sent as a stuffed file (.sit). PDF or ZIP files should not be sent, but photos saved on a ZIP disk are acceptable.
