Personalized Reading Recommendations
Caught up on books by all your favorite authors? Not sure what to read next?
We can help! Use our Personalized Reading Recommendations service to request recommendations from your own Personal Reading Assistant and get an annotated list of three to five (3-5) books catered to your interests.
Choose a Personal Reading Assistant based on your needs and interests, or choose either the “none of these” or “surprise me!”
(If you choose the last two, fill out the rest of the form as thoroughly as possible, and include what genres or topics interest you under "Anything else you'd like us to know?")
Some of these assistants have very broad knowledge of the world and its literature, while others are a little more…focused. Whatever you need, we can *usually* find something for you!
Fill out the form as thoroughly as possible so we can definitely get books to you. You'll get an annotated list of recommendations, and you can do whatever you want with them.
Once your form is submitted, your Personal Reading Assistant will email you the list of recommendations within a week.
And you’re done!

Your Personal Reading Assistants
Miss Aphrodite Jenkins loves love! She would love to recommend a romance—a guaranteed happy ending to brighten your day.
Think you’ve read all the romance? Think again! She’ll take you on a deep dive to some delectable reads.
She can recommend for all ages and levels of heat. Looking for warm fuzzy stories without romance? She’s a sucker for those, too.
Cy Clopedia, PhD
Cy knows all the things. Cy is as entertained by an in-depth book about climbing Everest as a book about military history in the U.S.
If it happened in the real world, Cy can find you a book about it—memoir, history and biography, social and cultural discourse, sports, music, and much more!
Cy is not stumped by much, so will you be the one to find a topic so obscure she can’t find you something to read?
Kid Kat Reads! If you have a young reader who's already blown through the 800 books in the most popular series (seriously, how did they read all those books already??), Kid Kat can find some cool new books or series to keep them occupied (for another day, at least).
Do you have a little one who is just starting out in chapter books? Or a little one mesmerized by picture books? Kid Kat is your recommender!
Books, chapter books, comics, or Minecraft manuals—anything a kid may want to read.
The Mysterious Mister wants to help you find the answer to the question: Who did it? And why did it happen?
Don’t like blood, don’t worry! Mr. E knows some cozy whodunits.
Would you rather your crimes were gruesome? That’s great, because he can find something for you, too.
If it involves a mystery, thrills, or adventure of any kind, Mr. E. is the recommender for you.
Want YA Fantasy? LGBTQ stories? Non-romantic YA?
Ursula can help you, Darling. They are acquainted with the magical, the wondrous, the queer, and the fantastic.
If you need a story about the joys and heartbreak of youth or the epic journey to save the world, Ursula will guide you to the thing you need.
Dr. Luc Ingbach
If your idea of good time is to visit the past through an engrossing story, the Perspicacious Professor of the Past can lead you towards historical fiction of all kinds.
Prefer the present? Dr. Ingbach has kept up with modern times and will be your guide to fiction from around the world. Why, a translated book is one of his favorite things! The good Doctor has seen much of the world over his many years and will introduce you to all the best places.
