Your comments are welcome. We know what we are doing is going to rouse the ire of those who think we are narrow-minded traditionalists out of touch with today’s reading public. Our purpose is focused not on censoring but on insuring awareness of content before purchases are made. School Library Journal’s Average Book Prices for 2018 lists the average cost of a YA hardcover as $24.15 and the average cost of a YA trade paperback as $16.74. Most school libraries today face serious budget constraints that require librarians to give some serious thought to each dollar spent. Our website aims to help with that.
