Cardholder Perks: Novelist and GoodReads

05 July 2017

Looking for that next great summer read? Feel like you've exhausted a genre and aren't sure where to turn next? Your library card can help you with that! This month, we're focusing on two great sites that can help you find your next read!

 

 

Get the break down on your favourite books, authors and series. Find what you liked most about a book and search just for those factors! There is NoveList K-8 which is a kid-friendly version and NoveList Plus which has no age restrictions.

Novelist is free with your library card and can be found here!
Note that you do not have to make an account, but it`s recommended if you want to save your searches and keep track of what you`ve read.



Join millions of readers on the social media and reading recommendation site. See what your friends are reading, keep track of everything you have read and get suggestions based on genre and what you have read.

Goodreads is free to the public and you can get to the website here!

And, as always, you can check out the Peace Library System website to see everything that is made available to you by your library card.

Happy Reading!
