What’s in a genre?

Patrons often come in and ask us for something in the genre they like to read, rather than a specific author.  It’s not so bad when someone asks for literary fiction or a British mystery. But what happens when someone comes in and says they like to read alternate history or romantic suspense? We start sweating (okay, not all of us, but some of us.)  Sometimes it’s easy, sometimes it’s not. I think we need a pocket version of this fun website!

bookcountryWith Book Country, you just select your genre (there are very specific breakdowns) and it’ll give you a selection of several authors who write within that genre and a brief description of each book. Wonderful!  No more researching those tough combinations!
