Every month, we get in a lot of new items. Sometimes they’re hot, new, and highly anticipated titles like The Battle of the Labyrinth (which, if you’re keeping track, has 283 holds at the moment), but sometimes they’re things we’ve just recently discovered, or items you’ve told us about. No matter what, it’s stuff we think you’ll like.
