NoveList K-8 Plus is a readers’ advisory service designed specifically for children in grades K-8. Books are searchable by author, title, series name, Lexile level (reading level), and plot (including character, topic, time period, and setting) to retrieve descriptions, reviews, discussion guides, and feature articles related to books of interest.
Readers may select from information provided to find similar books that appeal to them. Updated and expanded monthly, the service also includes lists of award-winning fiction, non-fiction, book lists arranged by genre and subgenre, feature articles, thematic units and more.
NoveList Plus, a service primarily aimed at adult and young adult readers, is similar to NoveList, but includes an expanded collection (contains over 150,000 fiction titles & over 4000 custom created articles and lists), as well as access to reviews and information on 50,000 non-fiction reading materials.
