    1. Julie Ehlers on said:

      Fellow users, what are we doing giving away all of our profound, articulate, funny thoughts on books for free? Why don’t we all have book deals for readers’ advisory books like Check These Out? The entire time I was reading this uninspiring tome, I was thinking that I read better book writing nearly every day, on this very site. There must be some way we can cash in on this. Actually, you know what, forget I said anything. I will think of some lucrative way to pursue this and will let you a [...]

    2. Randee on said:

      I am a sucker for book reviews and lists so this was much appreciated. I am always interested to hear anyone address what books they have liked. I thought this was especially helpful since the author listed 200 books and gave a very short synopsis. I do not like getting bogged down in a lot of detail in reviews. It's one of my pet peeves. Just give me a backbone of what it's about and a few sentences on why you liked or disliked it, preferably revealing something about oneself is the perfect rev [...]

    3. Melissa on said:

      Pretty much a book about books; each book recommended had it's own page along with a description of the book and which patron to recommend the book to. I picked this up at the library because I decided that starting in 2018, I will be working on my masters degree in library and informational sciences (right now I am just deciding on where to apply and what requirements I need to meet). So I figured a book by a librarian who surveyed other librarians about what they recommend to their patrons can [...]

      I of course did not let my fondness for the author sway my rating for this book (Hi Gina!), it's just simply that cute. And it was the perfect book at the perfect time for me, I just started back to work for the school year and one chapter a night of witty humor was all I could handle this past week. So now that I am caught up on sleep, I look forward to grabbing up all the books I've flagged to read for the future. Perfect for anyone who is at a loss for what to read next, needs a good recommen [...]

    5. Shayna Ross on said:

      Just another "top books" list and I didn't necessarily agree with many of them.

    6. Tracy on said:

      How delightful is this! What a great range of commentary! So glad to see Frank Muller included as a reader in the audiobook section. I really think Anne Rice should have been included in the gothic South ;) Thanks for showing me the story behind so of the stories and piquing my interest in many I haven't read.

    7. Amy Lafleur on said:

      Let's just say that my to-read lists are already out of control, so this is the last book that I should've read. I'm a sucker for lists of books though and this follow-up to Sheridan's I Work at a Public Library: A Collection of Crazy Stories from the Stacks caught my eye. While this isn't quite as hilarious as I Work at a Public Library, it's still dosed with humor. Sheridan's conversational tone (including her personal reasons for choosing or reactions to this or that book) makes you feel like [...]

    8. Marge S on said:

      There are quite a few titles published providing the the best books readers "need" to read. Gina Sheridan offers a brief, one paragraph synopsis of the books she includes as the 200 coolest, best, and most important books to read. I like the division of categories which offers a wide spectrum. i.e. "Very Truly Yours" - books written in the form of letters, diaries, emails, etc"What not to Read While Drinking Milk" = Humorous booksOne in particular, "the audiophile's audio file" covering both the [...]

    9. Courtney on said:

      Overall this book was underwhelming. One of the biggest issues is that the lists don't represent creative or provocative topics, in my opinion - humor, dysfunctional families, the american dream - I've seen numerous lists on these topics before, and Sheridan doesn't bring anything new to the table. There are better, more engaging RA resources you can access for free through library blogs, Book Riot, and Flashlight Worthy, just to name a few. I'm giving this 2 stars because I did stumble upon abo [...]

    10. Laura Hoffman Brauman on said:

      Books like this are a given for me-- an entire book that gives me 200 more books I might want to read (or about 155 of them, since I've already read a few). The coolest feature about this one is the way the author grouped the recommendations. Categories like "Southern Discomfort: Spooky Reads Set in the American South", "My Family Is Weirder Than Yours: Fiction and nonfiction about totally dysfunctional families", "Meta Textuals: Books about books, libraries, bookshops, and book nerds" and "Dais [...]

    11. Elaine on said:

      As if I needed more books to put on my listlol. There were some very good ideas in this book, so now I have about 30 or so more to add:)

    12. Arianna on said:

      There were some good suggestions in here that I have already added to my "to-read" list.

    13. Amy on said:

      Good for adding some more books to my TBR list but not remarkable. I'm looking for this one next that was recommended by a reviewer: "Read This Next: 500 of the Best Books You'll Ever Read".

    14. Maggie on said:

      Because my TBR list isn't long enough and I'm running out of stuff to read. (Not really.)

    15. Emery on said:

      Sheridan definitely has a bias towards darker lit and there aren't many fantasy titles listed, but other than that, this book is amazing. Can't wait to try some of the books she suggests.

    16. Cheryl on said:

      Please go read Julie's review: /review/show. She says exactly what I would, if I were so eloquent. And she offers titles of other RA books to compete with Sheridan's collection of of what? Well, of some specific 'Listopias' that might appeal to certain readers, like Southern Gothic, Dysfunctional Families, Stories about Con Artists, I suppose. You really are much better off using friends' reviews and Listopia here on .That said, I do have a few titles to investigate. But the thing is, by invest [...]

    17. Judy on said:

      As I mentioned in my updates,mid don't really need any help in finding books to read, but I'm glad I stumbled upon this book. I have read quite a few of the books that the librarian author has chosen to include, but took another look at titles I've dismissed previously. I skipped the chapter on short story collections, because I just don't like to read them. Some if the titles in the audio book chapter looked good. The chapter that made the book worthwhile for me was the one on Graphic novels. T [...]

    18. Brian on said:

      I liked that the style of this book was personal. the author not only tells you why you might like the book but also why she did. few of these books are obvious recs (do we really need another book telling us to read Middlemarch or The Turn of the Screw?). the books will fall into 4 categories, all of them pleasant:1. books you loved and she loved and thus your love is validated.2. ones you did not love but she did and you can revisit your experience of reading them and perhaps reevaluate or rer [...]

    19. Victoria on said:

      I'm so glad I came across this book. After reading Gina's other book, "I work in a public Library: A Collection of crazy stories from the facts" I went in search other other books by her and this was the only other one I found. Gina has combined a list of 200 books in different catagorys that she has read, enjoyed, loved and recommended. I please to note that quit a few of the books in list I had also read myself but there are so many interesting and wonderful books that I'm looking forward to r [...]

    20. Josh on said:

      Very quick to read book. The book ended up having 4 columns I separated the 200 into: 1) already read (about 30, so 15%)2) quickly added to my to be read list (about 20, so 10%)3) interesting, but only as much as reading the full synopsis on (about 10, so 5 percent)4) the remaining 70 percent are books that just don't interest me. The realization that I'm leaving this book behind with another 20 more to read is a GOOD thing. Most of those books might not have blipped my radar so it's a new jou [...]

    21. Carolyn on said:

      This is possibly the first book on "books you should read" that I actually felt wasn't totally pretentious. Sheridan includes a really great assortment of books on all different topics and I found a lot of titles that I actually want to read. The list is realistic and doesn't include a bunch of classics (which are important but really not everyone's first choice, let's be real) or books that are a million pages. Heck, she even has a section on graphic novels. I enjoyed her comments on the books [...]

    22. Michelle on said:

      I'm familiar with many of these titles and a few were already on my to-read list. But I sat reading this book with a piece of paper beside me to write down even more titles. Sheridan would rock the reader's advisory desk -- if the short description of the book didn't get me, how the book make her laugh, cry, feel, think was the sucker punch. Now that she's enticed me into making this long list, I'm curious to read some and see if I agree the books belong on this elite list.

    23. Cherie on said:

      I’m not sure I’d rate these the 200 most important, best, coolest books. The categories were neat and innovative, but there were a lot of things missed in a book of the most important books. I didn’t like the writing at all, so that was hard for me to get through. I will definitely be reading a bunch of these recommended.

    24. Corinne Wilson on said:

      Sheridan often waxes philosophical about what kind of life changing a book is, or how it connects to her life, without hooking me on the book itself. The categories are fun, but the book choices were a mix of great and ally? I added less than ten books to my reading list out of 200, but it was sort of fun to browse through.

    25. J. Bryce on said:

      Of course I didn't actually read every WORD, but what I did read I enjoyed.I particularly liked that this list has a LOT of unexpected gems in it - some of which I've actually read, mostly cover-to-cover.

    26. Sabrina on said:

      I just found my reading goal for 2015 (and, let's be honest, 2016 too cause I'm not a fast reader!). There are plenty of titles on here I've always wanted to read, or never even heard of, so I'm looking forward to experiencing them for myself.

    27. Courtney on said:

      Definitely missing some iconic books. Great suggestions otherwise.

    28. Ahndrea Sprattling on said:

      There are a lot of books I want to read after reading this books Gina Sheridan listed in this book. Thank you Gina!
