November 27, 2012

The following are lists of books releasing the weeks of November 26th and December 3rd that we think will be of interest to readers.

And don't forget to spread the book love! Forward this newsletter on to friends who also want to know what books are now available in stores.

The deadline to take our 2012 YA Readers Survey has been extended to December 14th! Have you already taken it? Tell your friends! By completing the survey, you (and your friends) are eligible to enter a contest to win one of 450 books our publisher friends have provided to us. So, the more people you know who take it, the greater chance you have for getting to read a new book, whether you win it yourself or borrow it from a friend!

The 2012 Readers Survey is for everyone who loves reading YA books who is over 10 years old and living in the U.S. (We still love all of you in Canada and overseas, but we know enough of the questions are U.S.-centric and those residing elsewhere wouldn’t be able to reply.) We ask questions about YA books and authors, but also delve into your thoughts on a whole lot more that is happening with pop culture media.

We assume it will take between 20-30 minutes to complete. Please allow the appropriate amount of time to complete it in one sitting. We had a test group take it and they remarked that the time to take it flew by!
