Looking For Your Next Book?
Why not try one of these online tools?
NovelistPlus: Using your library barcode, login to the link above the central picture on the library's homepage. Use it for reading lists, professional reviews, and information about your favorite fiction genre.
Goodreads: While you can make an account and start keeping track of what you have read or want to read (and see what your friends are reading), you don't have to login to use the site. Check out the "Readers Also Enjoyed" list for similar reads for each book you look at.
Whichbook: This is a really fun site that focuses on lesser-known authors and books. Try finding a book by switching around the level on "happy/sad" or "safe/disturbing," etc. or do a character/plot/setting search. This one is definitely worth a look!
And as always, we at the Newport Public Library are happy to give you real-life, in-person book recommendations!
