Personalized Picks

Delaware County District Library staff LOVE to read! And we read A LOT. Let us help you pick your next book. Personalized Picks is another word for what we call Reader’s Advisory. You let us know the last few books that you read and enjoyed, what aspects you liked about them, and what you want us to steer you toward (or away from) for your next title. We’ll send you an email as quickly as possible with a list of books that we think you might enjoy, based on your answers.

Tips for filling out the form:

  • Be specific
  • Use descriptive words and terms like “fast-paced,” “romantic,” and “character-driven”
  • Explain what book you’re in the mood to read right now
  • Try to avoid searches that span multiple genres
  • Fill out the form again at any time, based on whatever reading mood you’re in
