On Display: Book Buzz – Books Reviewed by Library Staff

book-buzz-logoSix summers ago (July 26, 2007 to be exact) the Bentley Library Book Buzz site launched its first book review to promote the library’s Popular Reading collection. Over the years, library staff have posted their reviews about the books and audiobooks in the collection on Book Buzz. Though popular titles come and go, we’ve generally kept the books that have been reviewed and added them to our stacks. We’ve built quite a collection and the display from July 16 through August 26 will feature highlights from our Book Buzz site. Visit our display in the entryway on the Library’s main floor or check out our display on Pinterest!

Have you already read or listened to one of the Book Buzz titles?  We’d love to hear what you have to say, whether you agree with our reviewers’ opinions or not. Take the opportunity to tell the world what you thought of one the books our staff has reviewed by commenting here or on the individual review in the Book Buzz blog.

You are also invited to write your own original review of any of our print or audio titles in the Popular Reading Collection or any of the e-book or e-audio itles in OverDrive.  Submit a book review using the Book Buzz submission form.  For more information, please read the Book Buzz review guidelines.

Book Buzz, that is!  The Book Buzz @ Bentley blog features book reviews written by members of the Bentley Library staff.  Highlighting fiction and nonfiction titles from our “Popular Reading” collection, BookBuzz can point you to a great new book (or perhaps even steer you away from something not-so-great).  Recently, we’ve added reviews of the bestselling novels Juliet, Naked, The Magicians, and That Old Cape Magic.  Next time you’re here take a few moments to browse the popular reading shelves (located near the cafe entrance) – we bet you find something interesting to to take home!
