NPR Has Released Its Book Concierge for 2015

NPR has released its guide to the best books of 2015. Instead of just publishing a best of list, back in 2013 the publication created an interactive reading tool that helps readers filter titles by their own interests.

This year, the NPR Book Concierge features 250 titles that came out in 2015 picked by NPR staffers. You can use the tool to determine which books are right for you. By selecting from a number of genres and other filters such as “Staff Picks” or “Eye Opening Reads” or “The Dark Side, “the engine will piece together a reading list for you. If you’d like to read a young adult love story, the tool recommends Carry On by Rainbow Rowell or All the Bright Places by Jennifer Niven, for instance.

“This year’s edition of the Concierge is dedicated to the memory of longtime NPR book critic Alan Cheuse,” NPR explains on its site.
