What Should I Read Next?
An awesome website that recommends books for you to read, based off ones you've enjoyed. My new favorite website!
Type in your favorite author, and a map will appear of other authors who are similar. A great way to find books based off authors you like!
SHS Teacher Recommendations
Sutton County Public Library catalog
Yes, you CAN get a library card through our local public library! And, they even have tons of e-books! Lots of the books are popular literature too, so you can keep up with what everyone else is reading. Note: the physical library is only open Mon-Fri 8 AM to 5 PM, but you can check out e-books 24/7/365!
Sonora HS Library catalog
Yep, you can check the SHS library inventory and see if that book you've been dying to read is in!
Used correctly, SparkNotes is a literatteur's dream...used for the wrong ends, it's a student's worst nightmare...
This is a great website/app that you can use to track books you've read or want to read, discuss books with other Goodreads users, or find a book club. My favorite feature? Scanning the barcodes of books to add to my Goodreads shelves!
