Are you an NPR Fan?

And who isn’t?  Check out this great article at the NPR website, Like These Books? Here are 60+ Things You Might Also Like…  You will find a plethora of suggestions for, not more books, but other materials you might like including movies, theater performances, podcasts, blog posts, television shows, web series, and more.

For instance, if you liked, The Sympathizer by Viet Thanh Nguyen, NPR suggests following up with the FX TV series called The Americans or the 2012 film, Argo, about the 1979 Iranian hostage crisis starring and directed by Ben Affleck.  Or, on a lighter note, if you liked Cat Sense by John Bradshaw, you (and your kids) might like My Cat From Hell, a wildly popular TV series or Disney’s time honored classic movie, The AristoCats.  Maybe you loved The Goldfinch by Donna Tartt.  NPR suggests the Masterpiece mini-series, Great Expectations or Woman in Gold, the 2015 movie starring Helen Mirren and Ryan Reynolds.

Find suggestions for decluttering, falling in love, women’s rights, thrillers, and food among other things.

And if you prefer to do the whole process in reverse, check out their other article, Like These Movies? Here Are 100+ Things You Might Also Like… which links many of your favorite movies to suggested novels and non-fiction selections in addition to other mediums.  You will find everything from Willa Cather’s My Antonia to Ernest Cline’s Ready Player One.  There is something for everyone in these two fun and thought-provoking articles.  Enjoy!

I have worked at NCPL since 2013 but libraries have always been my passion. When I'm not reading I enjoy traveling, hiking, gardening and spending time with family. Please support your local public library and read to your children!
