Start reading exclusive pre-publication excerpts right now from 40 top fall and winter titles, including many featured on stage and on the show floor at Book Expo America. Last year we featured over 15 bestsellers and books that went on to acclaim as “Best of 2012” picks.

In March,  BookExpo America Buzz Books were revealed for 2013, the set of fortunate books that will receive a spotlight at the annual book convention.

While these books have not been published yet, they will be featured in a jam-packed session with journalists, librarians, booksellers and publishing professionals at the conference.

Here’s more from the release:

Three separate committees of booksellers, librarians and other industry professionals have reviewed the numerous submissions in each category and voted for this year’s final selections. The highly anticipated Buzz Forums are among the most notable and significant platforms for launching new books and creating awareness for noteworthy titles and authors at BEA. Insightful and passionate, the forums typically attract a large audience of booksellers and media who are eager to hear about, and then talk about, the new titles which have been singled out for discussion and presentation.
