This is one of those sites that you want to keep to yourself because it will make you seem so terribly knowledgeable to your friends. On the other hand, it was so exciting to discover it that I have to share it here. 

Early Word, which began slowly in January 2008 and picked up speed in June of that year,  "is a Blog and Web site on a mission — to give libraries the earliest information possible on the books their customers will be looking for, so they can stay ahead of demand."

You can browse for upcoming movies made from books, Best Books of 2009 according to a variety of sources, One Community/One Book programs and many other tools with a librarian point-of-view but still valuable to the dedicated reader looking for the next best 'read'. Check this site out. It is awesome.
