Dear Library Patrons, The mission of NYPL is to inspire lifelong learning, advance knowledge, and strengthen our communities. Government support only pays for a portion of our work, so we rely on you to help - from stocking our shelves with amazing books, expanding our e-Book selection, classes, events, or even making free WiFi accessible to all. We are trying to raise $425,000 by December 31: an ambitious goal, but one that will fund incredible learning and reading in our community. Please consider donating to help keep our services free to all New Yorkers in 2015 >>

The second edition of this guide to genre fiction, updated to reflect new titles and literary trends, is designed for librarians who need to respond to reader's requests and tastes. The author separates fiction titles according to such genres as adrenaline (adventure, suspense), emotions (horror, romance), intellect (literary fiction, mystery) and landscape (fantasy, historical fiction). Each section contains "if you enjoy…" charts for reader recommendations, as well as lists of "sure bets" in each particular genre. Annotation ©2009 Book News, Inc., Portland, OR (booknews.com)
