BookBrowse

Tutt Library subscribes to BookBrowse, a really nifty reader-oriented database that has reviews, “if you liked this book, try these ones next” suggestions, themed lists (eg Coming of Age, On the High Seas, 18th Century,…), and a bookfinder genre-mash-up tool. You can also subscribe to ezines which highlight the site’s newest additions. It's definitely worth a visit, especially for fans of literary novels, historical fiction, memoirs, and narrative nonfiction. Offcampus or on, just go to http://www.bookbrowse.com/tutt!

 

Easy Places to Start

Tutt librarians and staff are always happy to hear your thoughts about books, make suggestions based on your tastes and moods, and even share their personal favorites. As always, we want to help you find the perfect book — whether it’s for class or not! We also have frequently-updated displays of leisure reading and new books in the library lobby, and you can check out Bookends, a collection of reviews by the staff of Colorado College. You can also come visit us at the the Tutt Reference Desk, call us at 389-6662, or send us an email.

Appeal-Based Search Engines
Ready to sit back and let your fingers do the walking? Tell these search engines which books you’ve liked (or disliked!), and they’ll make “educated” guesses about what you should try next. While not always reliable, they’re definitely fun!

Curious about what the experts consider to be the cream of the crop or what’s flying off the shelves? Check out these lists for the latest scoop.

Genres and Specific Interests
If you know what you like to read and want more of the same, or you’re ready to plunge into something new but don’t know where to start, you’ll find plenty of leads at these sites.

Great Conversations
Love reading about books (or movies, or music, or video games)? This section is for you!  A diverse range of cultural voices: book blogs, literary magazines, pop culture sites, and more.
