Some days, you just want to browse

There are days when you have a particular book you are in the mood for, and other days when you want to browse the stacks, wander the aisles, and see what book matches your mood.

For some that may feel a little harder to do in this digital age.  And in some respects it is, we do no always have a genre we are leaning towards, or an author who we know we wish to spend a bit of time with — so figuring out the right search terms at our favorite online vendor can be a challenge.

With the increasing popularity of eBooks, more and more classics, and public domain books, are becoming easily accessible… prompting me to occasionally search quite simply on classics, or by one of the publishers I’ve realized releases classics to see what they are currently offering, and if any of it might be free.

If you are in the mood for a “Classic” some publisher you might want to check are:  Dream Classics, Amazon Classics and Wisehouse Classics.  Classic Historical Fiction and Classic Literary Fiction.

If you are looking for a Classic Story, but perhaps a more relaxed and easier reading experience, Xist Classics appears to be a publisher that is working to make some of the “old greats” accessible to those in school… they describe themselves in one of the book blurbs saying “Xist Publishing is a digital-first publisher. Xist Publishing creates books for the touchscreen generation and is dedicated to helping everyone develop a lifetime love of reading, no matter what form it takes.”

In a perfect universe, CheerUp.Fun could recommend a book you are in the mood for every day of the year, but for those days when your mood strays in a different direction that our recommendation du jour, perhaps some of these search ideas will lend a hand in helping you find the just right book to help you relax, and enjoy some time with the written word.
