Beyond Bestsellers: Bye, Bye Biographies!

by Lois H.

It’s the end of the month already and it’s time for us to say goodbye to biographies and memoirs. This doesn’t mean that you have to say goodbye, of course, but we’ll be moving on to something a little different.

Starting in July, Beyond Bestsellers is going to start focusing less on genres and more on bestselling authors and titles. We know that sometimes you need a recommended read while you wait in line for the newest James Patterson. In this new and improved format, you can expect to see read-a-likes for bestselling authors like Nora Roberts and Neil Gaiman to suggestions based on hot titles like The Handmaid’s Tale or The Goldfinch.

However, if you’re like me, you’re never ready to say goodbye to biographies and memoirs! For more titles, you can always browse our blog posts or search the catalog using the subject headings “Biography” or “Autobiography.”  Don’t have time to read an entire book? If you ever need some biographical information, be sure to check out Biography in Context for your research needs. It’s the perfect database for school projects or fact-checking your friends.

And be sure to check out some of these biographical lists from Beyond Bestsellers’ past and present.

Thank you all for reading along with us this month! Keep an eye out for those upcoming changes and be sure to share your thoughts in the comments.
