GoodReads is a social networking site for book lovers. People go there to recommend and review books. You can use it to track your reading history and what you want to read.
GoodReads is the go-to site for the LRC staff. Our Recommended Reads lists are complied from GoodReads and at least one of staff member is a regular contributor of reviews to the site.
Slightly different from the others Readgeek requires you to rate books you have previously read (1-10 scale) and then recommends titles based on that information. The more books you rate both positively and negatively the more accurate the recommendations. It is free to have an account and you don't need and account to use the site.
Still not sure what to read? Check out our 'Just Returned' stand next to the main display area to see what your fellow students have been reading!
Do you have a Kindle, iPad, Kobo or other e-Reader? Well there are thousands of books that you can download for FREE. Have a look at some of these pages for links and downloads!
Audiobooks are an option for those of you who commute to school everyday. While you won't generally get the most recent releases as audiobooks without paying there are many sites offering the classics for free.
Public Libraries will sometimes be subscribed to Overdrive which will give you access to more recent releases. Another place to look is iTunes or the Play store both sell audiobooks.
