As readers, we are always searching for the NextBestBook. This is how we grow our TBR (To Be Read) pile. As a reader, I’m never without a next book. I always have a long list of books that I’m looking forward to reading. The list keeps growing.
Here are some sites that will help you develop your TBR pile–Good for summer, or any time of year.
It’ll also help you fight
The first place to look is on your TBR list you made in ELA all year–especially during BOOKflix Fridays.

IndieBound NEXT lists:
In this next one, you type in the title of a book you loved and it will give you recommendations based on that.
You can also use the Bn.com site to look up a book you’ve enjoyed, then scroll down to see what other people who liked/bought that book also liked/bought.
Some of these lists are a few years old. But a good book is a good book!

Bubba and the Dead Woman by C.L Bevill
I’m reading the book Alex Rider Scorpia. It has lots of adventure so if you like adventure you should read the Alex Rider series.
The movie trailer looked awesome. It’s fun to see you and a bunch of others get into the series. Yay!
I just finished the book Alex Rider Ark Angel I’m going to start reading Alex Rider Snakehead. Can not wait!
Every time I walk into a library, I think “there are so many books and so little time.” I just got another Daniel Silva book and a book on new research on the brain and how it could affect teaching. I already miss the classroom – especially English class. Your students are so blessed to have such a dedicated teacher. Thanks for all the links and the creative Animoto video. I loved using Animoto as part of student book reports.
How did you do that, Al? I like the sound of that for a project.
Students had to select music to set the mood for the book. They had to use text and visuals to present the essence of the plot. I gave computer lab time during class. Sometimes, I’d have partners read the same book and co-produce the presentation. They loved it.
