A Way For Teens To Find More Reading Ideas

I want to make sure you have plenty of books on your "wish to read" list. You may have noticed the new area on the library catalog that links to best seller and suggested reading. This is a great way to check out new books straight from the library catalog. Some of the lists you can link from there are some of the bestseller lists including: New York Times Fiction, New York Times Nonfiction, Publisher Weekly Fiction, Publishers Weekly Nonfiction, LA Times Fiction, and even more! If you click on the "more best seller lists" like LA Times, Library Journal, Washington Post, Christian Booksellers Association, and Barnes and Noble.

If the bestsller lists aren't enough for you there are even more selections with the suggested reading list. Directly from the catalog you can link to the National Book Award for Fiction, Pulitzer Prize for Fiction, Edgar Award (Mystery), Hugo Award (Science Fiction) and World Fantasy Award. To access more click on the more recommended reading lists to access suggested award winner from Fiction, Nonfiction, Science Fiction, Horror, Biography, Cookbook, Travelbooks, Children's, Western, Mystery, Fantasy, and Young Adult.

I am here to tell you there even are more lists and suggestions out there! To take you directly to the source I have included some links to some of the “Best Books of 2010” lists below. Three books from each list are highlighted in this blog, to read the rest of each list click on the link provided. Not all of the “best of lists” have been awarded for 2010 yet. But if you want to look at the current nomination list I have included that link for you. (You could even vote for your favorites!) These lists can be used to start building your hold list for 2011, or even as gift ideas for people on your holiday shopping list. Happy Reading!
