Historical Book Reviews

Unshelved Book Club

This week's Unshelved Book Club features books that will teach you about the past, including comics full of advice for new Jewish immigrants, a biography of Evel Knievel, a novel that shows the dangers of morphine, profiles of early U.S. astronauts' wives, a book about Germany's WWII U-boats, a biography of Rasputin, a graphic novel about a WWII ace, and an historical novel in which a family hunts for a missing girl on the frozen steppes of Ukraine.

NCTE Previews

Next week English teachers and school and academic librarians from around the nation will gather in Washington, D.C. for NCTE, the annual National Council of Teachers of English conference, a great show we've participated in several times, and hope to be at again.

We're sponsored this week by these fine folks, all of whom have something going on at NCTE that they'd like you to know about, whether it be author signings, giveaways, or special events. Click on each to find out more!

Don't forget to tell 'em we sent you!

Look for your Backer Survey

If you backed our Unshelved Goes Digital Kickstarter, you should have received a backer survey in your email last week. This is how we find out where you wanted your pledge dollars to go, and also how you let us know where to send your goodies! If it's not in your email,(remember to check your spam filter), message us on Kickstarter by clicking "contact us" on our campaign page, on the right, under Bill's smiling face.

If you missed our Kickstarter and still want to get Unshelved ebooks and/or adorable USB drives shaped like card catalog drawers, we are still taking orders for a limited time. Please do not click on this link if you backed our Kickstarter!
