 EBSCOhost: NoveList Plus

Let NoveList find the perfect book for you! Type in your favourite author, keyword, or book title, and the NoveList database will search its rich collection of titles, BookTalks, Recommended Reads and more. NoveList will even search by genre, popularity ratings, and readability level (Lexile* scores). Have you just finished a good book, and wanted to read more of the same genre? NoveList will recommend similar books to read. If you are looking for discussion questions, let BookTalks generate insightful questions for you.  This is the perfect way to get your novel study or book club discussion started.

* Lexile scores are the age appropriate reading levels.
