The All-Rounder


Your responses show you fitting equally into all four reading personalities:

Involved Reader: You don't just love to read books, you love to read about books. For you, half the fun of reading is the thrill of the chase - discovering new books and authors, and discussing your finds with others.
Exacting Reader: You love books but you rarely have as much time to read as you'd like - so you're very particular about the books you choose.
Serial Reader: Once you discover a favorite writer you tend to stick with them through thick and thin.
Eclectic Reader: You read for entertainment but also to expand your mind. You're open to new ideas and new writers and are not wedded to a particular genre or limited range of authors.


What you'll enjoy at BookBrowse


BookBrowse offers an eclectic range of books, both fiction and nonfiction with an emphasis on books that expand horizons, leaving you knowing something new about the world. All books are selected on the basis of merit so you don't have to wade through shelves of mediocrity to find the few literary diamonds.

Best of all, you don't have to take our word about any title, because every time we feature a book we give you all the information you need to decide if it's the right one for you, including our own review, a "beyond the book" article, a range of reviews from other reliable sources abbreviated to each reviewer's essential opinion, usually an excerpt and oftentimes an author interview and discussion guide, plus handpicked read-alike recommendations to other books we think you'll enjoy.

Some of BookBrowse content is available for free, but we reserve full access for our members. More about membership.

We also offer four free newsletters: BookBrowse Highlights and Publishing This Week (both weekly), and Book Club News and Librarian News (both monthly)

"The more original a discovery, the more obvious it seems afterward." - Arthur Koestler
