So Many Books! Let Our Books and Authors Database Help You
May 27, 2011
Don’t know what to read next? Have a favorite author, but have read all of his/her books? Believe it or not, you are in luck. With your Mid-Continent library card, you have access to a very cool and helpful website called Books and Authors.
On this site, you will be able to put in your favorite authors, and get a brief biography and complete lists of all the things they’ve written and co-written. In addition, you can browse by genre. Once you have chosen a broad subject, such as romance, Books and Authors lets you narrow down your interests by providing numerous subtopics. Some of the fun subgenres under romance are Espionage, Chase, Indian Culture, and Science Fantasy. The options are almost limitless. One of my favorite features of the site is the ability to create and save lists so that you can remember all the great titles you find on Books and Authors that you want to check out from the library later. There is also a place where you can check out what the "Experts" pick; here you can find a variety lists that will lead you to even more great books. So if you need to find a new author or want to try out a new book, Books and Authors is a great place to start.
