Have you ever found yourself sitting around, trying to think of something to do? I'm always one to recommend a good book, but what if you don't know what to read? Want to try something new, but don't know where to look? READ, REMEMBER, RECOMMEND FOR TEENS by Rachelle Rogers Knight is a great resource for really anyone looking for a new YA novel to try.

The resource list is split into categories by awards, state awards, and then interesting genres. There are a few sections of "alike" books (Eragon alike-reads, Twilight alike-reads, etc.) as well for those who just finished a book and perhaps want to read something similar. I know I've had that happen to me more than once and can full appreciate this addition to the book.

One of the aspects of READ, REMEMBER, RECOMMEND FOR TEENS that I found invaluable, was the way Ms. Knight developed the genres in her reference list and the amount of time and energy that went into the organization of these lists. The table of contents lists each section in a way that should make it very easy to find the perfect book. Of course I shot straight to the Paranormal Romance section, but there are other great sections including Action and Adventure, Westerns, and even a GLBTQ section. College bound and looking for books? There's a section for that! Interested in poetry? Flip to the poetry section. Anything you could be looking for can be found quickly and easily.

Aside from the resource lists of books, there are other tabs in this book that allow teens (anyone using it) to record their favorite books, their thoughts on books, who they may have loaned books out to, what books they have recommended, and what books they are looking for. For those who like to keep track of their reading, this would be a great resource. I've heard from a few people that they like the idea of book blogs or sites like Library Thing and Goodreads, but they don't have the time to get online and record their thoughts. I see READ, REMEMBER RECOMMEND FOR TEENS being immensely helpful in these situations. It provides an organized environment for recording thoughts about the great books you've been reading.

I loved READ, REMEMBER, RECOMMEND FOR TEENS and would recommend it to anyone looking for a good tool for their reading addiction. Also, I think this would make a great gift for those who love to read, or perhaps even those who need a little nudging to corrupt...err, convince them into joining the literary addiction we all seem to suffer from.
