HCPL Book Hunters are your personal reading consultants

The Harris County Public Library's Book Hunters is a FREE service that matches readers with books they love. Specially trained Book Hunters create custom, curated reading lists for you based on the information you provide about what you like (and don't like) to read. Fill in as much of the reader profile as you wish. The more information you provide, the more likely we can suggest books that fit your tastes. Leave areas blank when you have no preference. Librarians at the Harris County Public Library will use your answers to create a customized reading list for you. We will get back to you within two weeks with your list. Information will be kept completely confidential between the customer and book hunter.
