Finding New Books

People ask me all the time how I manage to find so many books to read.  I tell them it’s easy to find books, it’s just hard to find the time to read them all!   There are so many places around the web to find great books, here are some of the sites I find most useful:

Since I read mostly mysteries, Cozy-Mysteries.com is great for finding books that fit my interests.  They have a page that breaks it down into different themes, locales, and even authors similar to ones you already enjoy.  A great resource for any mystery lover.

I’ve discovered many authors on Netgalley.  Publishers make advanced copies (ARC) of books available to request, and in return, you must write a review.  Pretty good deal, getting free books in exchange for writing a few words on how well you enjoyed it (or didn’t enjoy it.  They expect honesty.)

Goodreads groups are also a great place to find new books.(Similarly, Booklikes is another great book review website with an active community)  I love the Cozy Mystery group, lots of great people and a very active board.

Many libraries subscribe to Overdrive, an ebook lending service.  It’s invaluable to me, as that’s where I get the majority of the books I read.  My library updates theirs regularly, so I’m always finding new things to read.  It’s definitely one of my go-to places for books.

There’s no shortage of good places to find books to read, you’re only limited by the amount of time you’re willing to invest in the search.
