ENC 0017 (Zuromski): Choosing Interesting Books

Books and Authors

Books and Authors is a database that will let you browse different types of books to find one that you like or search for a title that you liked and get recommendations for additional books you might like. It is available through Valencia's databases, but is also in the Florida Electronic Library.


Goodreads is a website, much like the Books and Authors database, that allows you to browse categories of books and find one that you like. If you decide to join the site, you can rate books that you have read and get recommendations based on books that you enjoyed.

The Valencia College libraries do not welcome solicitation of resources to be added to our LibGuides. This includes but is not limited to vendors, search engine optimizers, placement of ads, products, or any other requests. Our LibGuides are carefully curated resources developed in partnership with faculty, staff, and students to support specific assignments, courses, events, and other related purposes at Valencia College. The Valencia libraries reserve the right to ignore LibGuide resource solicitations, and/or block persistent requests from groups or individuals to add or promote links in our LibGuides.
