Help your readers give the gift of a good book this holiday season by publishing one or both of the book recommendation columns offered through Missouri Press.
Novel Ideas offers suggestions on newly-released books for adults. Three books are recommended each month, and your newspaper may publish in any configuration -- recommend one book a week, three a month or a year's worth in one big feature! The November Novel Ideas column and book jackets are available to download at mo-nie.com using download code: novelnov16. To access previous months, just follow the pattern: noveloct16, novelsep16, etc.
The Book Buzz column offers recommendations on three children's books each month -- two picture books and one chapter book for upper elementary. Book Buzz is written in the voice of Newsbee, a reader bee who offers his Picks for best books. Newsbee's December Book Buzz Picks are available to download at mo-nie.com using download code: buzzdec16. To access previous months, just follow the pattern: buzznov16, buzzoct16, etc.
All of the recommendations in these book columns are newly-released titles, perfect for helping newspaper readers make gift-giving selections.
