You may have noticed that we pay a lot of attention to what's new. We read reviews, keep track of what's forthcoming, order as much as we can afford of the newest titles by popular and/or high profile authors... It's not that the new books are the only things people read, but an awful lot of our most passionate readers always have books they are waiting for. The image that we use on our holiday posts says "Library Closed" to us ever so strongly because there is nobody standing there browsing the 7-day bookcase. If we were open, there'd be a person or two in the picture.
