These resources will help you find authors or books you don't know about, as well as explore new genres. None of them are configured to work with Get It @ VCU, so you will have to copy titles, authors, etc. to the VCU Libraries Search to see if we have a copy. If we do not have what you want, there are methods for locating your book in the box to the left.
One of the best ways to get recommendations for things to read is by meeting and interacting with other readers! There are various ways to do that, here at VCU and further afield.
