What should I read next?

Can’t decide what to read next? We’re happy to help! We get questions from readers all the time—what book comes next in this series; has ____ come out with a new book; is there anyone else who writes just like _____; can you recommend a good mystery (romance, thriller…); I’m looking for something new…and so on. We decided that our website lacked an important section, so we’ve created “What to Read Next”. Please take a look and let us know if we’re on the right, er, page.

If you would like to start with our newest fiction, non fiction, audio books, eBooks etc. click on Wowbrary. Look for the “Sign Up” tab in Wowbrary to receive free weekly email about our newest books, movies, music, audio books, and eBooks.

Next, try our  Staff Recommendations . We are a group of avid readers with very different tastes. This list is always being updated, so check back periodically. You might find something new each time!

We also have a collection of  Patron Book Reviews submitted by our library patrons during our Adult Summer Reading Program 2012.

Also, take a look at the Literature Databases and Websites . They will help you find out what comes next, who writes like ______, award winners and best sellers in different genres, etc.

Used Books will help you find a remembered friend you want to add to your home bookshelf or the value of an old book you found at an estate sale.

And finally,  Fiction and Nonfiction  lists might help you discover another author in your favorite genre.

We’ll be adding on to “What to Read Next” as time allows. Happy reading!
