I liked a book, how can I find others like it?

1.  Search for books you have liked on http://www.google.com Use the term "read alike".

Example:  Harry Potter read-alike

                 J.K. Rowling read-alike


2.  Search for books you have liked at http://www.amazon.com.  At the bottom of each entry, it will generally give titles of books that people have purchased in addition to that book. It will also provide a search option to look for similar books.

**Students in the 8th grade should search for books categorized as young adult or juvenile in order to find age appropriate material.
