Whatever your age and whatever type of books you like to read, we can always help you to find something new.

You can use the Book Trust bookfinder to look for books to suit your tastes and interests, browse our archive of interviews with authors or just see what's out this month that should be catching your eye in the bookshop or the library.


We recommend books for people of all ages, from babies to adults and offer you three categories - children's, teenage and adults - so that you can quickly find what's of most interest to you.
