And if you can't find what you're looking for, we would love to hear from you. You can make a Suggestion for Purchase for a particular title, author or even genre!  And if and when we get it in, we'll even let you know!

Reading Reviews

Looking for a great read? Have a favourite genre? Problem solved.

Reading Rewards bannerReading Rewards tag cloud

Our adult reading blog Reading Rewards has a great way to help you quickly access reviews in your chosen genre. Its called a Tag Cloud.

Go to Reading Rewards and click on your genre of choice within the Tag Cloud (at top right). You will get a page(s) of reviews of titles from that genre.

Click the title to see the review, then if you like it, click on the title within the review and you will be taken to the catalogue entry, where you can place your free hold and have it delivered to your chosen branch. We will then notify you (via email, SMS or mail - your choice!) when it is ready for you to collect.

Or you can create and submit your own reviews on Reading Rewards, or on our catalogue.
