Waiting for a Bestseller?

Are you #665 on the waiting list for the latest bestseller? Think of it as an opportunity to introduce yourself to a book or, if you’re really lucky, an entire series you haven’t tried before. Need a suggestion? We can help!
While you are waiting for Janet Evanovich’s Sizzling Sixteen to arrive why not check out the Bubbles Yablonsky series by Strohmeyer ? If you are waiting for Lee Child’s 61 Hours why not kill the time with one of these choices: Barry Eisler’s John Rain series, Michael Connelly’s Harry Bosch series or Stephen Hunter’s Bob Lee Swagger series.
 Many of your favorite authors' books share traits in common. We can suggest books with a similar style to a novel that you like. The similarity may be in the writing style, setting, plot or type of characters. For example, many people who read David Baldacci’s works also try James Grippando or Stephen J Cannell’s novels.  If you like the Sookie Stackhouse  vampire series you might want to try Nice Girls Don’t Have Fangs by Molly Harper or Bloodsucking Fiends: a Love Story by Christopher Moore.
When you’re in the branch don’t forget to check out our Bestseller Readalikes display for titles similar to those on the current New York Times Hardcover Fiction Bestseller list.   We have a full selection of alternative reading while you’re waiting for your bestseller to arrive.
