It comes of a Wednesday. The last Wednesday or the month to be exact. Sixteen curated 19th century related, recently published titles are selected from a vast array of resources, some exclusively available to Librarians. The sources include Baker and Taylor, Library Journal, Kirkus Review, Publisher’s Weekly, and occasionally, Amazon. Only books with high ratings are included. The summaries and reviews are taken from these sites. I make a point to present a well-rounded collection, as to not have a solid list of historical mystery books. The list is broken down into two parts; fiction and non-fiction and categorized alphabetically by title. For purely, professional snobbery, I once thought about arranging the fiction books by author and non-fiction titles by the Dewey Decimal System or the Library of Congress Classification, but those arrangement are not international. The basic tenant of all library is access; to make things easily available to the masses. So, I just sorted by title. Easy peasy. These titles were released or re-released this month. As such, I have not read any of theses publications, but I want to! So have your pen and paper at the ready. You may want to jot some of these books down, so you may request them at your local library, bookstore or Amazon. Let me know which ones are you going to add in the comment section below.
