Cindy, I read a lot and I'm a fast reader, so I'm always on the lookout for something new to read.
I usually go on Amazon and look at the bestseller's list that they have. You can see what others are reading, and read the reviews of the books and what they are about. There are also usually suggestions of other books of the same type that people are buying.
I usually keep a list going from Amazon, and then check with my public library to get the books. I also browse the Barnes and Noble store and just write down the titles that look interesting. I used to buy books and paperbacks all the time, new and from second hand stores.
After I started back going to the library a few years ago, I seldom puchase books any more. I'm sure I've saved tons of money.
Our library has become computerized and you can access the catalog online from home, type in your request for any book, and they send you an email when it is available to check out at your local branch. You can even go online and renew your check out times without having to go back to the library.
It has totally revolutionized my reading habits.
I see you are in Louisville Ky. I just checked online and it looks like Louisville has a very great library system, too. If you haven't done so lately, I would highly recommend you check it out. Libraries have really changed in the last few years. They even have free books you can check out for the e-readers like Kindle and Nook.
