More online resources for Reader Development

Posted by andrewey on October 22, 2009

As a followup to my earlier blog post – here are some other online resources that can be used to support Reader Development (and are relevant to students on the ICTL course):

Fantastic Fiction – this website is particularly useful for searching by author and for filtering results by genre. The website also includes book reviews .

What’s next? – a very useful website for identifying prequels and sequels. This website, produced by Kent District Libraries in the States,  allows you to search titles in a given series – identifying titles occuring before or after the one you search for.

BookgroupInfo – If you want advice on starting a group or a place to promote your reading group then try Book Group Info which also allows users to search for reading groups by region.
