Readers' Advisory!  What a staple of our work.  I am always excited to find a new and interesting resource for providing high quality RA, or for suggesting to patrons.

For the past several years, National Public Radio has pulled together the over 300 books recommended by staff and critics during the year.  Then they allow you to limit your search in all sorts of interesting ways.  You can limit to kids' and/or young adult books, but you can limit further to look at realistic fiction, seriously good writing, rather long, rather short, eye-opening reads, funny stuff, and MUCH MORE.  It is a really fun, graphic way to find some books that might be a good fit.  And you can check for past years suggestions, too!  Take a peek!  You might want to recommend it, or to use it to make recommendations when your mind is blank.
