Recommendation Services

    Search for books based on specific plot characteristics. Do you like romantic mysteries in the Elizabethan era? Or maybe it's science fiction with an eccentric coming of age theme that you love. You can find it here!
    Pick from 12 different characteristics (happy vs. sad, conventional vs. weird, funny vs. serious, etc.) and receive a few book recommendations. Titles seem to be a few years old. But worth a try because it's so easy to use.
  • Novelist Database
    Have a favorite book? This database lets you pick out the reasons you liked the book and then recommends others that might be similar. (MVLS/SALS Library card number needed to log-in)
