1000 what you ask.
Here at the Nevins Library we don’t just have this awesome blog from which you can get book (and more) recommendations. We also have a Tumblr Blog called A Book A Day
And, on A Book a Day we just hit 1000 books/movies/podcasts/albums and more recommended!!!
Here’s just a taste of what sorts of books you can get recommendations for on it.
When it comes to Mysteries I have read a lot, and I love recommending them. I’ve recommended everything from Police Procedurals to Cozies, to very very Thrillers.
I’m a sucker for prose random non-fiction (i.e. non-fiction meant to be consumed by those who don’t know anything about a topic). Here’s one of my favorite books, but, I’ve also recommended everything from books about space to World War II to all about the DC Universe. (There have also been some changes to Tuesday in the new year, but, have no fear, Non-Fiction will still be recommended).
Science Fiction and Fantasy get their own day. This particular book isn’t totally indicative of what is usually recommended, but it’s one of my favorites. I’ve also recommended everything from Zombies, to Speculative Fiction, and everything in between.
Who doesn’t like children’s books. And, don’t let anyone tell you that you can’t still read them either. I mean, I liked it as a kid, I like it now. Honestly, there could be so many different favorite ‘Youthful’ tomes that I’ve read since it covers both children’s books as well as middle readers, middle grade, and young adult books. But, King Bidgood’s in the Bathtub and he won’t get out is my favorite picture book repeating phrase. Go Page!!! (Like Totally Random Non-Fiction Tuesday, this particular day is going through some changes in 2019).
I mean, we’re all here for books right, but, sometimes you just want to sit around and watch something, or listen to something. This here is the day for you then. Everything from an underrated classic (with a librarian protagonist) like The Mummy to Die Hard (the non-christmas Christmas movie), and sometimes a great Soundtrack or Podcast as well. (And one amazing website).
Comic books are my Kryptonite. And I’ve read a lot of them. (They really help up my books read per year too *shifty eyes* Shhh… don’t tell anyone). But, in all seriousness. Whether you’ve been reading Superman and Batman and X-Men all your lives, or you want to know about some amazing non-cape wearing graphic novels. I recommend graphic memoirs, and from all genres (there’s mysteries, so so many fantasies, some science fiction, and basically, if you can find it in a prose book, someone has written a graphic novel in that genre too).
So, come visit us at A Book A Day. You don’t have to have a Tumblr account, and if you still use an RSS feeder you can even get updates every day that way.
I will say that you’ll probably want to have some scrap paper nearby though, for all the additions to your TBR.
