[Library name] now offers our members free access to BookBrowse.com, a leading book recommendation and review website.

BookBrowse seeks out books that tell you something about the world you didn't before. Such as novels that whisk you to unfamiliar times and places, thrillers that are more than just 'page-turners', and thought-provoking non-fiction that entertains as it informs.

Some of BookBrowse's content is publicly available, but a number of premium features are accessible only by subscription. Library cardholders can now use their library card to access members-only content.


Here are a few highlights of what BookBrowse has to offer:

  • In depth reviews that focus on the characters, themes, writing style, and the overall experience of reading the book, so you can decide if it's going to be right for you.
  • "Beyond the Book" backstores that explore factual aspects relevant to each book.
  • More than 200 recommended reading lists, by genre, time period, setting, award winners, and a wide range of themes.
  • Handpicked "if you liked this, try these" recommendations for over 3000 books and 3000 authors.
  • Rich information and guidance for book clubs, including advice on starting and running a club, recommended books, reading guides, interviews with book clubs, and book discussions.
  • Fun quizzes, book news, polls, author interviews and book giveaways.
  • All books link directly to ""[xxxx] Library's catalog so you can check availability with one click!

If none of these options fit your need, please feel free to write your own, or contact us and we'd be glad to help.

*You may wish to link to the page on your website where patrons can find the link to BookBrowse, or you can link directly to your library's specific login page (e.g. www.bookbrowse.com/abc - where abc is the customized link we've provided for your library).

If including a link in print, we suggest you link either to the BookBrowse "quick link" provided for your library or to bookbrowse.com/library - which is a generic, easy to remember, URL from which redirects patrons to their library's login page.
