Need a book recommendation?

Tell me what you're reading, I'll tell you what to read next.

We’re in a soft launch period for The Biblioracle Recommends, at least until I formally announce this place’s existence in my column at the Chicago Tribune after the holidays, but as long as the lights are on, we may as well make some use of the space.

If you want a book recommendation based on your recent reads, send me an email to with:

  1. The last 5 books you read, including title and author

  2. Your first name and last initial

  3. Your current hometown

I’ll batch up as many requests as I can handle, throw them into a post and launch them into the world.
