For the librarians on the Personalized Reading List team, making custom lists is one of the best parts of our job! We've been going strong for over a year now and, to date, we've completed over 400 personalized lists for our customers. Each list is unique, consisting of titles hand-selected by a librarian based on that customer's preferences. If you haven't requested your list yet, we want you to know what you're missing! Each month in this new column, we'll feature a recently-created list to give you a taste of what to expect from this new service.
Over 150 people have used our Personalized Reading List service since we launched in December and we've received a lot of positive feedback. If you've wondered what to expect from a personalized reading list, here's your chance to peek behind the scenes! These recommendations come directly from lists our librarians have made for customers based on their reading preferences.
"Because you liked the intergenerational family connections in Robinson’s Gilead, you may enjoy The Brief Wondrous Life of Oscar Wao, by Junot Díaz. Spanning the entire 20th century, Díaz follows a family through a curse that’s passed from generation to generation. Really interesting characters, and though there are tragic aspects to the story, it is not a depressing read."
