Adult Book Recommendations

Looking for your next great read? The Atheneum has partnered with BookLetters giving our patrons an easy way to stay current with the latest in web-based reading recommendations. Through the BookLetters website, visitors can take advantage of the following services:

  • Recommendations are provided through Book Lists, web-based lists of best-selling and award-winning books, and Atheneum selections arranged by topic and area of interest. Each Book List entry includes a picture of the book cover, a description of its contents, and a link to CLAMS, the Atheneum’s online catalog, making it convenient to check out the books that interest you online. See the Book Lists for adults below.
  • In addition, you can keep current by signing up for e-Newsletters. Many Book Lists are available through e-Newsletters sent on a periodic basis. The e-Newsletters will include all the information in the web-based Book Lists and allow you to reserve or check out featured books right from your email. Book Lists available via e-Newsletter are also listed below.
  • Additional services include book reviews, New DVDs and Book of the Day.
  • Finally, BookLetters hosts the Nantucket Atheneum Monthly Newsletter featuring happenings at the library and timely notices of upcoming programs and events.
