“What’s your favorite Capstone book of 2010?”
That’s what I asked everyone at Capstone last week. And when I say everyone, I mean well, everyone: editorial, design, production, media research, marketing, accounting, customer service, sales, distribution, leadership. You get the idea.
For many, it was like asking them to choose between their children. How can you choose one over the other? So, we let everyone vote for as many titles as they wanted in our little survey, and those with the most votes made the top of our list.
So without further ado, here are the top Capstone books of 2010, according to the folks who worked on and know them best of all:
#5 – TIE between
“It’s really funny!” —Paul, Trade Sales Manager
“I love true crime.” —Susan, Processing Specialist, Customer Service
“The art is fantastic, the information is excellent, and it’s perfect for the audience. Plus, I love the topic.” —Gillia, Managing Editor
“It’s a stellar example of creative nonfiction, from the concept development, to the author and editor, to the illustrator and designer.” —Jill, Product Planning Director
And our #1 pick…Drum roll, please…
“Roger and I have something in common, we sometimes put on our ‘crabby pants’. This book perfectly illustrates those little things that can make us so crabby, and always puts a smile on my face.” —Sharry, Inside Sales Representative
What do you think of our list? Do you have favorite Capstone titles of 2010 that didn’t make the list?
Happy Holidays dear blog readers!
Sharing Blog Love: Librarian Trading Cards Blog
Each Thursday we’ll feature a blog we love. Today we feature the Librarian Trading Cards blog. Blogger Amy Pelman told Library Journal back in 2006 that her hope with the blog is to spotlight librarians outside of the profession and to change the stereotypes. We love the concept of promoting librarians – professionally and personally. The Q&A’s with each are informative, fascinating, and even funny.
