Memorable Memoirs

A good story doesn’t have to be fiction. Compelling memoirs are good stories that offer readers the chance to experience adventure, tragedy, triumph, and more. This list of Memorable Memoirs comes from reviews in Library Journal and Kirkus Reviews and are noted as some of the best from the first half of 2016.

Summer Reading Lists

If you are still looking for a few more summer reads, check out some of these recommendations from Wisconsin and Minnesota Public Radio. Daniel Goldin, owner of the Boswell Book Company in Milwaukee, recently shared his Summer Reading List on the Kathleen Dunn show on Wisconsin Public Radio. All this summer, Minnesota Public Radio is presenting the "Take it to the Lake" summer fiction series, which includes interviews (added throughout the summer) with the authors of the selected titles.

Books in a Series

Finding Series information in InfoSoup is easy as long as you know the title of one of the books in the series or, in most cases, the name of the series. In InfoSoup, enter a title or series name and search. From the list of results, click on the book cover or title of one of the books to bring up the full record. On that page you can often find two Series lists. Directly below the title, is a link to a list of all the titles in the series.

If you do not see a series list here, scroll down the page further, under the "You Might Also Like" section and you should see the first books in the series followed by a "more" link.

If you are curious, here is a list of the series lists that have been most viewed in InfoSoup in the last two month.
