An excellent resource for both fiction and non-fiction reads. IndieBound is a community-oriented movement begun by the independent bookseller members of the American Booksellers Association. The weekly "Indie Bestseller Lists" are a current snapshot of what’s selling in indie bookstores nationwide.
Goodreads is a free website for book lovers. Imagine it as a large library that you can wander through and see everyone's bookshelves, their reviews, and their ratings. You can also post your own reviews and catalog what you have read, are currently reading, and plan to read in the future. Don’t stop there – join a discussion group, start a book club, contact an author, and even post your own writing.
While there is a membership fee for full access, BookBrowse offers reviews of books from both established writers and first time authors - novels that whisk you to unfamiliar times and places, thrillers that are more than just 'page-turners', and thought-provoking non-fiction that entertains as it informs. There is also an excellent Find-a-Book tab to help you discover books by genre, time periods and themes.
Even if you picked up the latest issue of "BookPage" here at the library check out this online version for more articles and interviews of authors...the print edition is available to view here as well. This is a good site to check for "books by genre" and there is an interesting blog on what's new in books and publishing.
Books on the Night Stand strives to bring you great book recommendations, as well as a behind-the-scenes look at the world of books, bookstores and publishing. They do this through our weekly podcast and frequent blog posts.
Below are the current and past NEW Book Lists provided by the Mercer County District Public Library.
