The Reading List

The Reading List seeks to highlight outstanding genre fiction that merit special attention by general adult readers and the librarians who work with them.

The Reading List logo features an open book with the capital letters 'R' and 'L' on the pages. The book is situated over an eight-pointed star. Around the star, a circular border: "The Reading List: Best Adult Genre Fiction." Around the border: American Library Association and an alphabetized list of genre categories from Adventure to Women's Fiction.
