What do I read next???

If you want to read a book, but just can't figure out what, the Maryland Library Association has you covered. The Reader's Advisory Interest Group has compiled a list of titles by genre.

If you want a list of titles on subjects like Political Fiction, In the Time of King Arthur, Paranormal Romance, Alternate History and, my personal favorite, Steampunk (whatever that is!), visit their Web site for ideas. Happy Reading...

P.S. from the Web site, Steampunk is defined as "a subgenre of science fiction or fantasy, refers to speculative stories set in the Victorian age of steam but with some technological or magical twist. Although the name is a play on cyberpunk (the dystopian science fiction of the 1980s that emphasized stories about computer technology), steampunk is more closely related to the genre of alternate history. Several steampunk novels appeared in the 1980s, and the genre is experiencing a new popularity now in the 21st century. It can appeal to readers who enjoy historical fiction, science fiction and fantasy, and paranormal romance".
