What is NextReads?

NextReads is a service provided by the East Greenbush Community Library to its members. Through NextReads, you can sign up for email newsletters that contain reading suggestions based on your interests. Frequency differs based on topic. Use these newsletters to help you find your next great read!

Newsletters are offered in various fiction genres, nonfiction subjects, and other specialty categories. To learn more about the newsletters we offer, head to the sign-up page and select the information icon next to a title to read a description of the newsletter (including frequency), or click a newsletter title to read the latest issue:

Residency is not required to sign up for newsletters, and the email you use to sign up will not be used for any other purpose. Simply check the box next to any newsletters you are interested in and scroll to the bottom to enter your information, prove you’re not a robot, and subscribe. If a newsletter doesn’t turn out to be your cup of tea, you can always unsubscribe by scrolling to the bottom of an issue that has been emailed to you and clicking the unsubscribe link.

The new newsletters

This February, two new newsletters became available for subscription:

  • Page to Screen: Is the book better? Decide for yourself with this list of books that inspired recent or upcoming movies and TV shows. Bi-monthly.
  • Must-Read Books: A monthly list featuring the top ten books loved by librarians across the U.S.

How can I get these newsletters?

To sign up for either of these lists, or to check out other member favorites like Biography and Memoir or Fiction A-Z, head to the NextReads sign-up page and subscribe to as many as you’d like for free! Are you already a subscriber? Let us know your favorite newsletters in the comments. Looking for more personalized recommendations? Fill out this form to have a librarian select items for you based on features of books you’ve already enjoyed. Don’t want to wait for a newsletter? East Greenbush and Schodack residents have access to NoveList, an online recommendation engine for books and audiobooks. Happy reading!
