Wondering what to read next? is an online resource which helps children and young people to discover authors who write in a similar style to their favourite writers.

It can be particularly useful for library staff when they are asked about a specific author or genre or when asked for advice by a parent who wants to encourage their children to read or by a child or young person who is seeking guidance on what to read next. Staff and readers alike can enjoy browsing for popular reading suggestions.

Pricing for libraries operates via a series of nine size bands, based on population/membership and number of service points. If you are interested in subscribing, please email with your population/membership figures so that we can tell you which band your library service is in.
