Searching for a book

When searching Google for books, search under the title, author or series.

 Search Destiny, the e-catalogue, for books also using the title, author or series.


- check out an author's webpage - they are often amazing!

- ask your parents, friends, neighbours for book recommendations - good books are remembered!

- ask your LCI at your school or ask at a public library for help finding a book - if you want to enjoy reading a book, start with a book you like!
