Don’t you just hate it when your reading “taste buds” are all primed for the latest James Patterson or Janet Evanovich, you rush to the library to take it home for a nice, long weekend of thrilling reading and…it’s checked out! All 7 copies! What to do? Add your name to the waiting list, and then come to the Readers Services department and pick up one of our handy “While You’re Waiting For…” lists of recommended read-alikes.
The “While You’re Waiting For” list will feature five individual titles or authors whose works are similar to the book you’ve had your heart set on. For instance, if you wanted the newest Danielle Steel, our “While You’re Waiting For” list will steer you toward Barbara Taylor Bradford, Barbara Delinsky, and three other authors. Or, if you’re dying to read the latest in Robert Ludlum’s “Bourne” series, we’ll recommend works by authors such as Robert Littell, Henry Porter, and Daniel Silva, among others.
The “While You’re Waiting For…” lists can be found in the Readers Services department near the New York Times Best Seller list, or just ask a Readers Services staff member.
