It’s that festive time of the year! No, not the holidays, the release of best books of the year lists! The New York Times and Washington Post just released their lists of the top 10 notable books of 2019, for example. The CU library has a guide that links to a variety of these lists from book editors, as well as award winners like the National Book Award.
To get your hands on some of these notable books, see books on these lists that the CU library has or has on order, in the library catalog.
Check the Vermont State Colleges libraries’ catalog to locate or request award-winning books, or any books. The Castleton library doesn’t own all of the books on the best books lists, but if there is one you think we should purchase, let us know. To borrow an item owned by the Johnson, Lyndon or Hartness libraries, click on “Place Request (Castleton)” and log in.
Of course there are plenty of books written before 2019. If you need ideas for a good read, try the Books & Authors database. You can browse by genre, or put in the title of a book or name of an author you like and you’ll get recommendations of similar books.
Now, if you’ll excuse me, I have a stack of books to tuck into!
