We're recommending books again!

We're doing another book recommending party with Multnomah County Library!

Next Thursday, June 16, from 5-7 pm, we'll be answering your call for what to read next, over at Multnomah County Library's Facebook page.  (The exact link will go up that morning.)  Tell us three books you liked and we'll put them through our super-scientific algorithm* to recommend a title that combines elements of all three to entrance and intrigue you. 

For instance, if you liked Kafka's The Castle, Isabel Allende's Maya's Notebook, and Chang-Rae Lee's On Such a Full Sea, we might recommend...Yuri Herrera's Signs Preceding the End of the World.

You can leave us your book request any time next Thursday and we'll do a whirlwind response blitz that evening between 5 and 7.  You don't even have to be a Portlander--it's the Internet, after all.  It's free to play and we love a challenge.  Consider that a friendly, enthusiastic gauntlet thrown down.  Stump us!

And if you bring a copy of the book we recommended to the next Silent Reading Party on Sunday June 19, we'll have a special prize for you!

* Not actually a super-scientific algorithm.  Not actually an algorithm at all.  More of a fast-paced conversation among booknerds around a table scattered with M&Ms, pizza boxes, and well-thumbed issues of Booklist magazine.
