Read-Alikes Tool - Literature Map

Literature Map allows you to input a name of a favorite author and then provides you with a "web" of authors you may like. Author names closest to the author's name you entered are probably your best bets.While the results may not always be spot-on, this is an interesting discovery tool and will surely expose you to authors you may never have considered.

You can also pick up read-alike lists from your local library - ask at the reference desk - or consult those our staff have put online via the Book Notes blog (see right side of blog, section labeled "Read-Alikes."
