You may not read our comments so I am making a separate posting. Roy Tennant left a comment (thanks!) on my previous post "Chicago and Buying Books" about the 1stReads beta program...different in details from the OCLC 'buy books' feature but close in spirit.

Here's Steve Coffman's posting to Web4Lib and here's the 1stReads site. There's a lot of detail so I am not summarizing here.

Anything that conflates library content with The Rest Of It is all good, to me. More to the point, it's good for libraries and their communities too.

And Roy? I may need a loan before the conference is over...
