50 Words or Fewer: The Art of Writing Shelf Talkers | American Booksellers Association "Word-for-word a well-crafted shelf talker can be the most effective means of recommending a book to an avid reader." I would create these shelf talks with my students and staff. These are already popular with independent book sellers and have been popping up in the big name chain stores too.
This has been CVHS Library's MOST talked about display in a long time! We asked staff and students to take a "selfie" with their home bookshelf in the background and email it to us. We dubbed them "shelfies," a term I hadn't seen before so we're taking credit for coining it! :) We have them displayed on a BB and also in an album on our library FB page. https://www.facebook.com/CVHSLibrary
