Have you ever finished a great read and want to find more of the same kind
The NoveList Plus database connects readers to their next book by making recommendations for what to read next. One of the most popular elements is read-alikes. This feature suggests titles that are “just like’ other titles. There are also read-alike-s for authors and series. Novelist Plus covers both fiction and nonfiction titles for all ages from the youngest readers to adults. It also has extra content like reviews (both professional reviews and reader reviews), book discussion guides, curriculum guides, and other book-oriented articles. Book groups and teachers find these resources especially helpful.
The Mid-York Library System now offers Novelist Plus
A helpful resource for readers to find the books that are right for them.
Just Click on the links below to explore this resource.
When searching for an item in Novelist it will now show you if the title is available in the Mid York catalog. This will also show different formats the title is available in. You can then click the orange Go to Catalog button to be taken to the Mid York catalog record. A screenshot is below to show what this looks like.
