If you've read everything by your favourite author don't despair! As well as looking through our reading lists or asking at your Library, we have resources that can help – Who Else Writes Like…?  is easy to use. Give it an author you like and it'll suggest others you'll enjoy.





       We also have Who Next...? a version for children and young people.


Reading groups Reading groups

Reading groups are a great way of socialising and sharing a love of books, as well as trying something you wouldn't normally read. We have groups for teenagers as well as adults and we also have guides for setting up your own! More information can be found on the Reading Groups page.
