What do I read next? Try Overbooked!


With this blog and our Staff Picks blog, the WFL staff tries to bring titles that may of interest to readers in the community. There are many websites that are available to check for titles of interest including LibraryThing, Genrefluent, Bookpage, GoodReads, Shelfari, etc.

Today I would like to introduce you to Overbooked, created by
Ann Chambers Theis in 1994. It was the winner of the 2008 Louis Shores-Greenwood Publishing Award for excellence in reviewing books. The site claims to provide "annotated lists of nonfiction, fiction and mystery books which received starred reviews [from library journals Booklist, Library Journal, Publishers Weekly, and Kirkus Reviews all in one place], themed booklists, featured title lists, and hot lists of US fiction [new] releases and notable books." (from website)

So if you are unsure what to read next, try Overbooked to see what may meet your tastes! SH
