Readers Advisory  

Librarians are trained in how to provide "Reader's Advisory" service to library patrons. The keystone of this service is matching the "appeal" factors or characteristics of a book with what type of book you enjoy reading.  Appeal factors include story line, story pacing, atmosphere, the characterization style of the the author, the tone of the story, the plot, and more.
