As I have often written, “reading, viewing, and listening for pleasure” is one of our priorities. Many services to readers are described on our website... ...Book My Favorites, eBooks, New Fiction, New Nonfiction, Hot Picks, Book Club in a Bag for book groups, and others. We now have a new one—Now Read This for personalized reading recommendations from our staff.

We are available to suggest titles that match your reading interests. Complete the form on our website telling us books or authors you love, titles you have enjoyed or not enjoyed, genres you enjoy or would rather avoid, subjects about which you would like to read more widely. Within 7 business days, our staff will email you a list of 5 recommendations based on your interests. If you aren’t happy with those recommendations, we’ll try again!

Staff members haven’t read every book in our collection but we are familiar with most of them, we read lots of reviews, and we talk about what we have read among ourselves and with patrons.

We hope you use and enjoy this new service for readers. Let me know with a comment on this blog or email to


Now Read This!
