The NPR Booklist

The NPR Booklist was created in May 1993 by the staff of WUNC Radio as a way to help local bookstores get needed information about books they heard discussed on the station. Gradually more bookstores were added onto the mailing list as well as libraries. In Fall 1993, the list started getting posted on a listserver for public radio affiliates. In January 1994, it went world-wide, being posted on several USENET groups including rec.arts.books, alt.radio.networks.npr and triangle general. All booklists from June 1993 - December 1999 are currently available on ibiblio.
