Who Else for Public Libraries

Who Else for Public Libraries

Wondering what to read next?

www.whoelsewriteslike.com is widely used by public libraries. It is an ideal online resource for fiction readers who want to discover authors who write in a similar style to their favourite writers.

Library staff find it particularly useful when asked about a specific author or genre or when asked for advice on what to read next. Staff and readers alike can enjoy browsing www.whoelsewriteslike.com for popular reading suggestions.

Pricing for libraries operates via a series of nine size bands, for example the price of a one year subscription ranges from £236 to £1,968 depending which size band a library falls into. Note: prices are subject to VAT.

Subscriptions are available for one, two or three years. If you would like a quote, please complete our online enquiry form here.
