What To Read
"So many books, so little time" - Frank Zappa
Summer is upon us and there is no better time to lounge around with a good book, whether at the beach or in the backyard! Below is a list of websites that can help even most difficult to please reader find a great book.
Good Reads is a great source to find book recommendations and read reviews before you buy. It is my go to source. It's chock full of book lists, as well as trivia, quizzes and a great resource for famous quotes.
Your Next Read
You've read a book and loved it. Now what are you going to read? At YourNextRead, you can enter a book title, favorite author, or genre and it will suggest other titles you might enjoy. It works pretty well and is definitely worth a try.
For those boys who can't find a book, Guys Read's Books For Guys page offers book lists by age group and genre, as well as by what they may be looking for - like robots or explosions!
Want easy access to hundreds of books?
Epic! is a new to me resource. Focused on children up to age 12, Epic! offers hundreds of books for online reading on iPads, iPhones any web browser and soon Android. For a monthly subscription, you get unlimited access to picture books, chapter books, early readers and even comic books. A great way to bring books with you when you travel.
