Sure bets

Sure Bets by Rebecca Howard

I recently participated in an online conversation with Readers’ Advisory librarians across the country.  One of the things we discussed was sure bet books.  Sure bets are those tried and true titles that we find ourselves suggesting to readers over and over.  A librarian from Seattle Public challenged us to come up with ten titles that are—generally speaking—crowd pleasers.  There were quite a few overlaps and some titles that were brand new to me, but it was a great exercise.
