How I Find Books To Read

Typically, when I want to find a book to read, I look no further than my bookshelf because it's stocked full of books that I thought looked interesting in the bookstore and haven't read. Ha! In all seriousness, I typically look at Amazon, GoodReads, LibraryThing or NetGalley (for upcoming titles). I maintain to read lists at GoodReads, Library Thing and I have a wishlist of books on Amazon. As you can see, I love to collect books and organize them, but I'm still suffering in the reading department. To be honest, I think I'll be utilizing NoveList more often now that I've used it. The Nashville Public Library has a subscription to it so that's easy for me and it makes it easier to find read alikes. I can input books that I love (like anything by Neil Gaiman) and find books that match that same tone and style. As much as I rely on user reviews on Amazon/GoodReads/Library Thing, I really think that NoveList might work out better for me.


  1. Hi Laura, could you please tell me about NetGalley? I am not familiar with this site and I was wondering what it offered and why it is your "go to" site. Thanks so much!

    1. Hi Suzi! NetGalley is a site for book reviewers or librarians who want to read books before they're released. You have to be approved for some of the books, but the more you review on the site the better your chances.
