How Do I Pick My Next Book?

If you want to read a book, but have no idea what book, here are some sources for ideas. A list of the most popular books in the Minuteman Library Network is here. Just be aware that since the titles on this list are so popular, you might have to wait a while for a library copy. Here are the titles that have won the PEN/Faulkner Award in recent years.  The award is given to the best work of fiction by an American citizen in the calendar year (or at least, "best," in the opinion of the judges). If you love mysteries, you owe it to yourself to consider the winners of the Crime Writers' Assocation Gold Dagger Award. Also check out last year's winners of the National Book Critics Circle Awards. Categories: Fiction, Nonfiction, Biography, Autobiography, Criticism, and Poetry. Looking for a laugh? Here are recent winners of the Thurber Prize for American Humor. And here is the 2015 list of Notable Books of the Year chosen by the editors of the New York Times Book Review. Happy reading.
