A Fun Database for Recreational Reading Recommendations

It is almost that time of year when you may actually have some free time (finally!). Whether you are looking for a great book to get as a present for a family member, or just something to read yourself on your long plane ride home for winter break, Kimbel Library's Books and Authors database is a great place to start. You can enter the title of a book you like, and it will recommend similar titles, or you can choose the setting, genre, characters, etc. that you would like to read about. There's even lists of celebrity book recommendations available each year ("who reads what")! And remember, if Kimbel Library doesn't have the book you want, there's always PASCAL or Interlibrary Loan. Happy reading!
