Get personalized book recommendations from an actual human.
Read however you want (i.e. e-books, audiobooks, etc).
Purchase or borrow from any store or library you want.
Are you looking for the perfect book to give as a Mother’s or Father’s Day gift? Or just the perfect book for yourself?
Do you want personalized book recommendations, but don’t have the time to visit an independent bookstore, the library or browse the bookish Internet/social media?
I’ve been an avid reader for most of my life and have been writing about books for over four years. I’ve read hundreds of books that are just waiting to be recommended to the right people!
Sarah’s Book Shelves is offering free personalized book recommendations for a limited time.
How does it work?
I provide book recommendations (not the actual books) based on your personal taste. You purchase or borrow the book(s) in whatever format (e-book, audiobook, hardcover, etc) you choose from the store of your choice.
If you’re unsure of how to articulate what your reading taste is, check out my post on How to Ask for Book Recommendations…So You Find Books You’ll Love!
- Fill out the questionnaire below.
- I will email you 2-3 book recommendations that fit your criteria (check your “Promotions” folder if you use Gmail!)
- If you’d like recommendations to use for a gift, I will email them to you so you can purchase the book(s) in whatever format your recipient prefers OR directly to your recipient.
- Complete a short survey afterwards (and be entered to win a $15 Amazon gift card).
Let’s get started (put your cursor on the questionnaire and scroll down)…
Make sure to click “Submit” on the bottom of the questionnaire to record your response!
My personalized recommendations ARE a great fit for you if…
- You love literary fiction – particularly books that fall in the sweet spot between “literary” and “commercial.”
- You love nonfiction – particularly memoirs, narrative nonfiction, popular culture/science, or sports books.
- You read electronically or listen to audiobooks. I can be your local bookstore for recommendations, yet you can purchase, borrow, or gift the book in whatever format you choose, from wherever you choose.
My personalized recommendations are NOT a great fit for you if…
You are predominantly interested in graphic novels, romance, sci-fi / fantasy, self-help and/or how-to, young adult, children’s books, or poetry.
I’m offering this service at no charge as a trial for a paid personalized book recommendation service. Your survey responses will be used to determine whether this idea is viable and, if so, to fine-tune the details.
Anyone who requests personalized book recommendations through this page will receive a special discount if you sign-up for the official program.
