Finding a good non-fiction book

If you are looking for a good non-fiction book, don't just pick one that 'is good enough'... choose one that you'll enjoy with the help of some of these tools.

Looking for more books like your favorites? Want to find a new author? Can’t remember all the titles in a series? NoveList Plus has the answers!

Goodreads.com is a great site for book recommendations. If you'd like to interact with other readers, you could join and begin creating lists of your favorites and sharing with others.

We have created lists of non-fiction titles that the library owns.   "Good Non-Fiction for Teens"  or "Narrative Non-Fiction Books" may have something you'll enjoy.
