Overview

Readers' Advisory Service in the Public Library / Edition 2

Librarians called upon to make recommendations for adult leisure readers are often confronted by genres and topics outside of their personal experience. Practitioner and consultant Saricks gives practical and creative ways to guide adults to reading material which meets their personal taste and with which they are comfortable. She discusses "read-alike" lists, the advisory interview, incorporation of nonfiction, and the popular book market and its appeal to readers. She includes samples of read- alike lists by type of fiction or nonfiction and author, and a very helpful list of "sure bets" for that pop question in the stacks.
