READING SUGGESTIONS
Looking for a good book to read? You could ask a librarian. At hclib.org, towards the bottom of the page, you’ll find the link Ask us for reading suggestions. This leads to a form you can fill out about what sorts of books you like, and what sorts you don’t like. Fill in the form and you will get an email with reading recommendations. If you don’t want to fill out a form, you can always ask librarians for recommendations in person, over the phone, or via chat.
