Feasting on books sounds easy, but finding good books to gobble up often requires knowing where to look and who to ask. Here’s a handful of suggestions to help you find the worthwhile reads:
- Ask your friends, those around you, or the friendly folks in the library for a satisfying story – you may find your favorite book this way. If you’re a little on the shy side, you can take a look at our blog here, especially at our weekly Best Books feature with suggestions from students and staff.
- An easy way to look up books in the library is utilizing our catalog – this can be accessed anywhere online, plus our three iPads stationed around the room are set to the catalog all the time for easy searching. Did you know you can also keep a log of books you want to read in Destiny Quest? You can create a free account with your school email address.
- Websites like Goodreads are great for keeping track of what you’ve read and what you want to read, and bonus! It’s free with an easy-to-use mobile app! Take a look at our LFHS Library Goodreads page and become our friend to be notified whenever we get new titles in. We’ve broken down our entire fiction collection books into different categories and genres, and we have select nonfiction there as well. The more books you read and rate, the more suggestions the website will give you for what to pick up next.
- There’s a whole book blogging community online, created by readers of all ages. For example, The Book Monsters blog has acted as a judge for several prestigious award committees. Video reviews more your style? Just search for “booktube” on your next YouTube search.
You can discover appetizing books anywhere, but finding the right one for you can sometimes take a little effort. Once you have found a savory story you’d like to share, be sure to enter our Starbooks coffee raffle in the library or on Instagram. Winners will be selected Dec. 1st. (Entries limited to LFHS students and staff, please!)
