We Want Your Recommendations

Regular users of Booklist Online know that, in addition to writing and editing reviews, our editors recommend similar titles for many reviewed works. In 2010, we’d like to hear from you, too, for a new feature on our REaD ALERT newsletter called Booklist Readers Recommend.

In every issue of REaD ALERT, Booklist Online senior editor Keir Graff will choose a noteworthy title and ask you to give us a short list of read-alikes. Be creative! Both fiction and nonfiction are fair game, and include books, audiobooks, videos, and even Internet databases as you wish. Just be prepared to defend your choices. Using one or two sentences per title, explain how each one complements the selected work. E-mail your list to Keir Graff, and when you do, please include your full name and professional title, and attach a photograph of yourself. If your list is selected, it will be published in REaD ALERT. Plus, you’ll get a free six-month single-user subscription to Booklist Online.
