Reviews are back!

Sample review

Since you should never judge a book by its cover, our catalog now provides you with more than just a book’s cover.  We once again offer summaries, reviews and more in our catalog.

Thanks to a recent update to our system, you can now peruse professional reviews from Booklist, Publisher’s Weekly, Kirkus and Library Journal. Some items may also have links to online selections, such as opening chapters or table of contents.

To find these items, simply:

  • Search for a book and scroll down the page.
  • Find the blue strip reads “Summaries, Reviews, Notes, Etc.”
  • Click on the link to expand and read author notes, the catalog summary and reviews. Content will vary depending on what is available for a particular item.

novelistAlso, while you’re checking out our book reviews, also be sure to click on the Novelist button.  For most of our fiction books, a click on the Novelist button will take you to detailed information about the book, complete series lists, author biographies, and suggestions for what to read next.

Take a look in our catalog, and let us know what you think of this additional content!
