Every Saturday and Sunday morning issue of the Lincoln Journal Star newspaper includes the “The (402) 411” section. Included in that section of the paper each week are regular author profiles and book reviews, by both local reviewers and national review services. Due to the regular popularity of the titles reviewed in the paper, we’ve designed this page of the Lincoln City Libraries’ Web site as a simple listing of the books recently reviewed in the Lincoln Journal Star, with links into the library’s holdings for all the listed books which are currently in the collection. If a title below is not hotlinked, this is an indication that the library does not currently own that book, but you may consider requesting the title through the services of our Interlibrary Loan department, or suggesting that we purchase it via our on-line Suggest-a-Title form.
Note: Although the Lincoln Journal Star is reviewing fewer books in the print edition of the paper, they are including many more syndicated book reviews (from outside sources) on their website. This index on BookGuide is primarily to the reviews that have appeared in the print edition of the Lincoln Journal Star newspaper — UPDATE: Starting in May 2019, we now also provide a list of the titles reviewed by the LJS only on their website as well.
