Librarians have a term for helping people find something good to read – “reader’s advisory”. We also have a bunch of fantastic resources we use to find things. Now we’re going to share these not-so-secret tools of the trade with you. So if you’re the kind of person who likes to be left to your own devices when you use the library, then check out this treasure trove of great places to go for book suggestions:
- Discover an author you haven’t read before but who writes like one of your favourites;
- Find out what the best reads on the menu are;
- Be the first to get your hands on one of our new titles so you enjoy the crisp white pages and fresh-off-the-printer book smell;
- Hunt down that book you loved when you were younger (but have forgotten the title and author’s name) at NoveListPlus by searching the few keywords you can remember about the plot;
- Learn more about authors you’ve enjoyed and read reviews from people in the know at Books and Authors;
- Get recommendations (or admonitions) from librarians and other library users right here on our blog or go to our facebook page.
