EXCITING NEWS:


I am pleased to announce that content from The Book of Life has been included in the new Jewish Book Search tool created by the Jewish Publication Society!

Here's their description of the tool: "JPS has put together a list of the highest quality websites with Jewish Book content. This search engine queries those sites and those alone. This will allow you to be sure that your search will only be related to Jewish Books. No more sifting through tons of content for what you are looking for. Search for any and all Jewish Books, articles about Jewish Books, blogs about Jewish Books, and anything about the Jewish Book world. Search by title, author, keyword, or area of interest!"


Go ahead and try it out! If you'd like to embed the tool on your own site, visit JPS.

Heidi,

Thank you for the wonderful author interviews at Book Expo.
I researched many of the books for future orders.

The activity in the background during the interviews brought back fond memories of my days as the owner of a children's bookstore.

The Book Expo was the highlight of my year, workshops, lectures, book signings, gatherings with the authors and illustrators and, most especially, the visits to the hundreds of publisher booths to get a peak at the new books for the fall season.
