In the Good Books
In the Good Books is YPRL's book recommendation podcast
The art of recommending the right book is a tricky one.
Can our team of librarians, along with guest authors and other literary and bookish figures, come up with a perfect TBR list for even the fussiest of readers?
Our team takes a survey filled in by a YPRL member and discusses how they selected just the right books to suit each reader and their tastes. Selecting items from our vast collection including classics, hidden gems and new releases, staff members Lefa Singleton Norton, Sarah Schmidt, and Patrick Jovaras are ready to tackle reader conundrums of any kind.
Each episode is accompanied by a reading list of all the books discussed.
Our Book Valet program is free for all YPRL members! Just get in touch with us, and within the week one of our librarians will email you at least three book recommendations based on the information you've provided.
If you'd like to have our team on In the Good Books use your survey in an episode of the podcast, just indicate you are happy to have your survey used for other purposes.
