Too much choice?

With so many books, how do you decide what you're going to read next?  Don't worry, we know a couple of websites you can use to help pick your next book, see our links section. Every library also has a copy of a useful reference book called Who Else Writes like...?

If you're really stuck, or if you just want a bit of a natter about books and reading, talk to a member of staff in your local library.
