NoveList—Your Back-up Book Squad

So, you just finished the best book ever and now you have nothing to read. Give yourself time to grieve, then get busy.

LPL librarians love to help readers find new material, but what if we’re closed, you’re out of town, or you prefer going solo and charting your own course?

NoveList connects you with read-alikes (imagine your favorite book had offspring) using the simplest of searches. Whether you’re looking for a fast-paced thriller, a bodice-ripping romance, or want to find the next book in a series, log in and watch your nightstand reading pile grow.
