Did you know that librarians like to make lists? I’m not talking about grocery lists or to-do lists. (Although I am fond of both of those.) I’m referring to booklists.
Part of our job, and one we find quite enjoyable, is developing lists of books our readers might find interesting. We make lists of new books. We make lists of fiction and non-fiction titles. We compile lists of mystery, science fiction, and romance books. There are lists of cookbooks, no matter what your eating or drinking preferences. We make lists of books we liked and some we may not have, but that other people might. There are lists of books for people who want to travel far away and for those who stay closer to home. We make lists that recommend other authors based on who you already like. And there are lists to tide you over until that book you’ve been waiting for actually arrives.
Do you have any ideas for booklists you would like to see ? We do take suggestions . . .
