Desperate for a good read? No time to wait for bestsellers? Well, believe it or not, there are actually hundreds of books out there you would love – and we have many on our shelves. Put your name down for that James Patterson or J.D. Robb, and then take a look at NPL’s Readers’ Corner. There’s a lot more there than you think.
Some highlights you may have missed:
1. Staff-compiled themed booklists: See what staff are currently reading or our picks for the best Indian authors;
2. Next Title By: Put your name down for the next Jodi Picoult or Stephen King – before it’s even published! As soon as we’ve got a copy, you’re automatically on the hold list;
3. E-mail suggestions: Sign up for book suggestions in your e-mail through NextReads or Dear Reader Online Book Clubs. Indicate your favorite genre(s), and even receive samples or full text of some books!
4. NoveList: There’s a whole database out there designed for picky readers like you. Search for your next read by bestseller and author readalikes, by subject descriptors, or even by lexile level.
