Book Discovery: Prepub Titles

Do you hate it when your friend says she is reading the latest bestseller from your favorite author, and you didn't even know that the book was coming out? Here at the library, our goal is to have books ordered before you even know that you want them.  With about 300,000 books traditionally published every year in the United States (and that many, or more, self published), and the means to buy only a small fraction of them, how does your library decide what to buy, and, more importantly, how can you get on the list early so you're not waiting months for the latest hot title?
