Our Read Alikes author and book lists are created by the Culpeper County Library staff and volunteers.  Features a growing list of read alike recommendations.

So, what is a "read alike"?  You can probably figure it out without a definition, but a read-alike is a book or series or another author that shares a commonality with another book or series or author that might appeal to the same reader. It could be a similar tone, setting, depth of characterization or type of plot, or even something else.
