Do you sometimes need help finding just the right book? NoveList has always been a great tool for reading recommendations, and two new features, Browsing by Genre and Browsing by Appeal, make it easier than ever to find exactly what you want!

You can Browse Genres by age group.

Once you select a genre, you’ll get a page with further subdivisions.

You can also browse by appeal characteristics. For example, sometimes I like to read a book with dark humor and flawed characters. Other times I prefer a book with a strong female character and a lyrical writing style. You, too, may be drawn to different kinds of books, depending on your mood.

If you are familiar with NoveList, take another look at it to explore these new features. If you’ve never used it before, give it a try, and maybe you’ll find a new favorite book!

NoveList is available from our homepage. You’ll need to log in with you Newport Library card and PIN. If you need help setting up your PIN, feel free to call us at 541-265-2153.

Happy reading!
