Let whichbook find your next read

by Lee Snook on 2020-12-15T09:55:05+00:00 | Comments


Our Libguides system is provided by a company called Springshare, who offer all kinds of library related software to help us run our services.  As well as providing great software they also flag interesting library related websites, and today they introduced us to whichbook - and we love it!

Whichbook is a great site for helping you to discover new reads.  Instead of browsing or searching by author name or book title, you can choose books by

  • mood and emotion
  • country setting
  • character and plot

You can also start with a recent bestseller you enjoyed and discover other books with a similar mood that you might like to try next. 

As well as highlighting the books, the site also flags where you can buy (via Amazon) or borrow the books through the public library service.  If you have joined Devon Libraries, choose that option from the menu to see if the book you are interested in is available there - in print or as an ebook or audiobook.  if you belong to any other 'local to you' library services, you can try those too.

So, if you are planning some leisure reading for the approaching holiday season, why not start exploring and see what you find?

We hope you enjoy the site as much as we do!
